Importance of Base Preparation Before Construction

Site preparation for construction is important to ensure that the property is technically ready for construction. It is essential for projects of all sizes. Regardless of how big or small the property is, our site prep contractors will help in preparing your site. The process includes the following steps.

  • Demolition

The old building needs to be torn down to prepare the site for the new construction. You can start building your site after the land and the base has been checked. Cracks must be properly repaired to ensure that they do not damage other building sections. Systematic planning and work will help in figuring out the best ways to find hazards and ensure that the materials are thrown away safely.

  • Foundation excavation

While preparing a construction site, care must be taken when performing excavation site preparation. Sites located near telecom service or railway lines must ensure that no service line or underground wiring is damaged during the excavation. Therefore, surveying underground assets and cables running below the ground is important. You need to get the wirings relocated to prevent potential damage.

  • Site clearing

Before the construction begins, everything from the ground up must be cleared out within 3 metres of the intended construction area.  This includes any under bushes, timber, trees and rocks. If the topsoil is not of the required quality for building purposes, it needs to be dug up and replaced with something more suitable.

  • Ground levelling

The ground needs to be flat and smooth for the construction to begin. There are two different ways to achieve a levelled ground. The first one is bulk excavation which involves digging to make a flat spot for the building. Footing excavation is the second type and you must ensure that the ground does not have any mud, tree roots, or loose dirt. If the site is sloped, you might need to build a level platform and it can be done in two ways. They are “cut and fill” and “split level”.

In the cut-and-fill procedure, the higher part of the land will be excavated and the lower part of the land will be filled. If the site material is unsuitable for filling, alternative options will be used. The split-level method is used for sites with steep slopes. A bulldozer will level the building area. Installing surface drains is a great way to get rid of water on sloped sites.

  • Earthmoving

Earthmoving involves moving earth, rock and other materials with the help of tools and equipment. It can include wall shafts, tunnelling and underground activity before the construction.

  • Trench digging

Trenches will be dug using manual tools such as pickaxes, shovels, or heavy equipment like trenchers, and excavators. Trenching will help in the installation, maintenance and inspection of cables and pipelines.
