Walking across an empty stretch of land may feel like it is solid ground, and for carrying the weight of one human, it certainly is. However, when adding in buildings and hundreds of people, things get much more complex.
Excavation is the key element to excavation: Making up for the extra weight added to the ground when a commercial or residential building is constructed on it. There’s more going on here than many people might realize – much more than people could possibly imagine!
Land Clearing and Groundbreaking
Before beginning a commercial project, one of the initial tasks must be clearing land. This involves clearing away any trees, rocks and even any existing structures that must be removed. While it may seem tedious to clear away everything at once, excavation is an integral part of construction jobs. But not every excavation job involves uprooting everything and starting over; many involve maintaining some natural features like hills while creating space for construction while leaving others intact.
The primary objective of excavation is to prepare the land for construction. Different soil types respond differently when compacted or built upon, so it’s up to the excavation team to ensure that their work leaves nothing behind. Furthermore, any potential drainage issues should be taken care of beforehand so they don’t arise later on.
