Excavation – What Is It in the First Place?

Excavation refers to the process where equipment, tools, or explosives to move rock, earth and other types of materials. This includes trenching, earthwork, underground, tunneling, and wall shafts.

Excavation has several essential applications such as environmental restoration, application, construction and mining. Out of these, construction is among excavation’s most common applications. Excavation is an important aspect of construction to help build roads, reservoirs and foundations.

Some of the main processes being used during excavation include site development, dredging, digging, and trenching. All of these processes require unique and specific machinery, tools, and techniques to ensure that the job is done right each and every time. The processes used are also dependent on the structure to be built out of the construction project.

The Excavation Process and How It Works

Before the process of excavation can start, it is important to carefully examine the site to ensure that the natural habitat as well as the artifacts nearby will be preserved during the excavation process. After this step, the plans for the depth and size of the site will also be made. The excavation team will then create drawings from them in order to clearly mark all the boundaries of the site of excavation. Once the two steps above are taken and done, this is the time when the excavation work will officially start.

The entire process of excavation may include the following:

  • Setting out the corner benchmarks
  • Surveying top and ground levels
  • Excavation to approved depth
  • Loose soil dressing
  • Making up to the cut off level
  • Construction of interconnecting trenches and de-watering wells
  • Making the building’s boundaries
  • Construction of the protection drains and bunds

Why Choose and Hire the Professionals from Utah Excavation?

Hiring a company that specializes in excavation is never a decision you should take lightly. There are plenty of things at stake here. Your property, your safety and your finances will all be affected once you hire the wrong company to get the job done.

Here are top reasons why it is important to choose the professionals from Utah Excavation:

 

  • Working with amateurs is actually more expensive.

A lot of people believe they can never afford to hire an expert excavation company. This is what makes them cut corners thinking that even if the things are not perfect, it will at least be easier on their pockets. You might even think that this is something you can do on your own or that your friend who happens to be a DIY fan can do it for you to help you save money. You might even decide to just work with a company that specializes in other fields and not solely on excavation.

In any case, you will only spend more if you hire an amateur. It is simply because if something goes wrong with the project, you need to pay someone else to help fix it. The result is that you will pay more for the same project done twice. 

 

  • Professionalism and expertise is a must.

Professional is a term that pertains to experience, training and level of quality. All of these are traits you need to expect from any excavation company. It is important to work with a company that has long been in the business. It is a solid indicator if the company is worth your money and time in the first place. 

Those that are unprofessional and inferior will never last that long. The professionals at Utah Excavation have a strong work ethic and a culture of safety that you can always rely on to get things done. 

 

  • Plenty of things could go wrong if you aren’t too careful.

Things such as collapse of trenches, failure to assess equipment dangers and other risks are only some of the perils of an excavation project. For instance, there could be a limited or tight space to work with and if this happens, you need to have a comprehensive plan to compensate for them to ensure that the project will be executed as safely as possible. 

It is also important for you to know the best type of machinery suitable for every project. The equipment required for removing large trees or boulders will be so much different from the ones needed to remove a swimming pool. 

The use of inadequate or wrong equipment combined with working with inexperienced operators makes the perfect recipe for an expensive and irreparable disaster. An expert excavation company like Utah Excavation evaluates the condition of the ground, the possible effects on the nearby structures and the handling of the site cleanup. When things are managed improperly, the job can quickly turn into a complete mess. 

 

  • The most unexpected things can happen. 

Although most excavation jobs can go off with no issues, unforeseen issues are always possible. For example, you might be faced with some dangerous materials underground once the job has started. 

Wildlife or animals might also be a serious factor. The uncharted cables, tree roots or pipes could also damage equipment. The specifications of the project must be altered. 

There are also places where the weather changes drastically and suddenly that can make it a must to be able to adjust immediately. An inexperienced contractor will never know how to work around or handle these situations. 

The professionals at Utah Excavation are familiar with all the necessary forms and proper work you have to file. We also have the appropriate insurance and safety procedures to ensure that the site of the job is secured and that you are protected through and through. 

 

  • Cleanup is often equally essential as the excavation job itself. 

There are lots of underground junk and dirt that are dug up during excavation projects. It can include non-recyclable plastics, large tree stumps and concrete slabs. What are you going to do with all of these? Of course, you can’t just let them stay on the property. 

It is also important to manage waste throughout the project to ensure that surrounding properties won’t be affected or blocked because of your project. There are usually regulations and rules on correct handling of such materials as well as the things that you can and cannot legally do with them. 

Non-experts might not be familiar with these procedures and guidelines but with Utah Excavation, you can count on us to know all of these and more.

 

  • Excavation involves more than digging alone. 

Factors like sedimentation and erosion control are serious concerns on all types of excavation and construction projects. When handled incorrectly, these problems can end up damaging the property and affecting your water quality as well as those nearby. 

Putting a limit on the areas of exposed soil, implementing vegetative measures and diverting water using trench drains are just among the best ways for erosion management. It is not done just for practical reasons alone. There are existing laws on erosion control and a project can be shut down if you don’t take extra care to eliminate siltation and erosion. 

 

  • All types of soil are not made equal. 

A mere look at the topsoil won’t let you know right away what lies underneath. You might be surprised once you finished digging several feet. Different types of soil will also have different reactions to various excavation processes. It is also important to determine the location of softer ground and possible dangers you have to watch out for. Professional methods for soil testing are necessary to prevent soil failure and ensure safety.
