Clearing the site

Site clearance and land clearance can mean many different things — from digging out a few tree stumps to major reclamation work and the removal of hazardous materials.

No matter what the scale of land clearing operations it is best to put together a proper site clearance plan first.

All site clearance should be carried out quickly, efficiently, cheaply and with full awareness of any health and safety regulations both on and off the site.

Site safety comes into play even before a single digger moves in to start any site clearance work.

People visiting the site must be warned beforehand about any construction and clearance work about to begin, and signs must be erected to warn visitors against entering the site while unsupervised.

Hard hats, for example, must not only be supplied to workers clearing the site but to any visitors also, so it's a good idea to have several on hand for those who arrive on site without the required safety equipment.

And for any substantial project, you will need to hire an experienced site clearance contractor to ensure that all work is carried out efficiently using the right equipment for the job.

Clark & Kent Contractors have years of experience in land clearance projects both large and small. They also have an extensive range of bulk earth moving machines and diggers.

The company has been providing a broad range of professional site clearance and demolition services both public and private construction sectors for many years and has the knowledge and expertise to deliver effective land clearance projects on time and within budget.

The clearance of any construction or landscape site may result in many different types of material and waste that need to be moved or disposed of.

Not only should the site be cleared of rubble or unwanted soil and vegetation, but it may also require the removal of hazardous or contaminated waste material.

For this reason alone, it is essential that site clearance is carried out by trained professionals who will be aware of the rules and regulations governing the removal and disposal of hazardous waste.

Every site clearance project is different and has its own problems. Clark & Kent Contractors has worked on a broad range of residential, commercial and industrial sites each of which has its particular challenges and demands.

Our staff have not only the skills and experience to solve these problems but has in-house access to a wide range of modern, well-maintained plant hire equipment. Our machines are regularly serviced to minimise breakdowns while the extensive range means Clark & Kent always has immediate access to the replacement device in the rare event that one is needed.

Take a look at our plant hire pages to see just a small selection of the machines we have available, from tracked diggers to dumpers and skid steer loaders. Access to our own fleet of site clearance equipment means Clark & Kent can clear and remove inert material from a project site quickly, efficiently and within tight budget constraints.

And, as the cost of dumping waste on landfill sites increases, Clark & Kent can implement a broad range of site clearance services that can include reusing and recycling materials in order to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
