Road and Site Preparation

Building site preparation requires the services of experienced site preparation contractors.  A reliable contractor will be fully equipped with trained crews and equipment to offer site preparation service .
We know that the site preparation process is the first task that must be completed.  Engineers need a clear and properly prepared site to.  To start a new project in a site that is unfriendly to the project can destroy plans, hinder building permits and damage the overall project. It is a challenging activity that must be dealt with before any building project can begin in earnest.
With civil engineering projects, the site preparation can be demolition (both above and below ground), soil clearing, soil testing, site plan designs, zoning restrictions, environmental concern and coordinating how everything on the project should run. Preparing your site properly to begin with means a much safer, more productive working environment.
The site should be in a cleared and graded condition. It involves the removal of trees, demolishing buildings, removing any and all old underground infrastructure, and any other obstacles that might affect the construction process in the future or hinder the project to be done.
If your building block is not clearly identified by survey pegs, you cannot be certain that you are building on the correct block. A surveyor will survey the site and line out exactly where the structure or road project is to be built. The Surveying process is not an option it is a requirement for most zoning and permitting processes. Surveying is the translation of a contractor’s set of construction plans into a physical representation on the project site.
Soil testing is a vital important task that needs to be done before the site is purchased. The composition of the soil must be known so as to examine the ability to withstand structure and to test the ability to absorb water. The site Engineer will insist that you do all necessary soil testing before commencing any structural task on the soil. If the soil at the site is not suitable for the future project, then there may be no choice but to look for another site which has soil suitable for the project.
After the soil testing is done all necessary drainage and septic tanks are installed, the next step is to modify the design to indicate placement of septic systems and all necessary fixtures. Nothing can be done without designing the site, and above all making permanent record of what is underground.  A construction site is a living breathing thing, it changes daily, as placement of a water tank underground changes slightly because of underground rock formations for instance, this must be noted for future reference.
The site plan will show newly developed access roads for construction vehicles and temporary storage areas for supplies to be delivered.  The site plan will also depict where the building should be after it is built. Unlike other steps taken in site preparation, the site plan is updated in the field and revisions are carried out in office by consultants.
Geotechnical site investigation performed in order to characterize soil, rock and groundwater condition of the proposed site. A geotechnical site investigation is the process of collecting information and evaluating the conditions of the site for the purpose of designing and constructing the foundation for a structure, such as a building, plant, road, parking lot or bridge.
