Site Work Contractor FAQs

Site work construction encompasses a large part of the total construction project. It is typically considered to be anything that is worked on except for the building of the physical structure. This means it can be constructing the foundation of the building, trenching, excavating septic systems, digging pipelines, land clearing, pond excavation, soil stabilization, concrete placing, and many other services.

It is common to think that excavating contractors only dig and haul dirt out of a job site, but excavating contractors are actually responsible for grading the soil, clearing the land, preparing the job site, and other tasks. One of the most important tasks that an excavator does is preparing the job site for construction. If the job site isn’t prepared properly it can make it difficult for the project to be a success.

A job site excavator needs to use a variety of excavation techniques to be able to work on different construction projects. These techniques include channel excavation, bridge digging, drainage excavation, dredging, much digging, stripping, topsoil removal, borrowing, and footing.

The excavation of a construction site can be a long process or a relatively short process depending on the project. The excavation process typically begins with an analysis of the area. An action plan is written up and potential trouble areas are identified before digging begins. The action plan is vital in order to keep the project on the set timeline. It also ensures things like any septic tanks, underground wiring, or piping isn’t accidentally damaged during digging.

Trenching is a common technique used in the excavation process because of its ability to accurately place underground infrastructure without having to dig up the entire site. Trenches are diggings that are long, narrow, and deeper than they are wide. This is different from typical excavation as those are typically holes that are roughly equal when it comes to their dimensions.

Trenches are typically used when placing long infrastructure such as gas lines, water piping, or electrical wiring. The trenching will protect them because of how deep the trenches are typically dug. Trenching can be difficult to perform because the trenches need to be very narrow. This leaves them susceptible to collapse and flooding.

Parker Excavation’s job site professionals are trained to deal with trenching as well as various other methods of excavation and construction site preparation.
