Detailed excavations can become quite complicated if the right steps are not followed. Since excavations are required for public construction projects and even for homes and offices, development and implementation of strategies is required. Let us now take a look at the procedures of the excavation below.

  • Staking

Staking or rough staking is a process where the experts determine the approximate location of a home or any other type of building. If there are any obstacles such as trees or other objects, they will have to be moved. In rough-staking, stakes are placed around the specific area where the construction will be started.

  • Removal

In the removal or the clearing phase, the vegetation or the roots are removed for a smoother excavation as well as later construction. An expert excavator in Albion Park will give an estimate of the number of materials that are needed to be removed and how to remove the debris from the site.

  • Relocation

After or while the excavation is being carried there will be a lot of debris from a building and that that has to be removed and relocated in someplace else. The debris is being moved by heavy equipment like backhoe or bulldozers and then the dump trucks are used to relocate the debris from that place to the other.

  • Grading

In this process, the dirt that was removed during excavation is used to back-fill the areas around homes to establish the ground for drainage purposes. After that, the filled dirt is covered with rich topsoil to make it more fertile for grass and other plants to grow around the home.

  • Controlling the Erosion

There are different locations where regulations might apply when it comes to the topsoil as those might be eroded by heavy rains and for this reason before excavation in Albion Park can take place local officers might have to investigate the area.

At times the excavators will also inspect the areas to find out the possibilities of erosion and if it exists, necessary steps will have to be taken to prevent the topsoil of the land from getting washed away by rain.

When some grass or plants have grown on the land, the possibilities of the erosion decrease.

  • Extensive Survey

An extensive survey has to be conducted to determine the strength of the soil before beginning the excavation. The experts will research the landscape of your local area and if no problems are found, then it can be considered as a green signal for excavation.

After the survey is over, reputed companies on the job will prepare a report that will determine the quality of the soil and the tools or equipment required, and the costs that you will incur.

  • Setting up Boundaries

The final step before beginning construction is to set up boundary walls on the site that is to be excavated. The contractors will survey the area and will set this up in the perfect way to avoid disputes.

Since these are the steps that will be taken by your friendly excavator in Albion Park, you should be prepared to provide them with all the information before they start their work.
