Excavation is the process of moving earth, rock or other materials with tools, equipment or explosives. It includes earthwork, trenching, wall shafts, tunneling, and underground. Excavation in West Michigan has several important applications including exploration, environmental restoration, mining, and construction. Among these, construction is one of the most common applications for excavation. Excavation is used in construction to create building foundations, reservoirs, and roads. Excavation is also used in Septic Tank Installation, Repair and Replacement
Some of the different processes used in excavation include trenching, digging, dredging and site development. Each of these processes requires unique techniques, tools, and machinery to get the job done right. The processes used will depend upon the structure that will result from the construction process.
Before the excavation process can begin, the site must be carefully examined to make sure that the natural habitat and artifacts surrounding it have persevered throughout excavation. Next, the plans for the size and depth of the site are made and the excavation company makes drawings from them to mark the excavation site’s boundaries. Once these two important steps have been taken, the excavation work can begin.
The entire excavation process includes:
- setting out corner benchmarks
- surveying ground and top levels
- excavation to the approved depth
- dressing the loose soil
- making up to cut off level
- the construction of dewatering wells and interconnecting trenches
- making boundaries of the building
- the construction of protection drains
