When you’re going about your daily life, you’ll see construction projects all over the place – whether it’s the building of a brand new local gym, or somebody building a pool in their backyard, and all of these projects will involve earthwork (or dirt work) of some variety. Generally speaking, earthwork is almost always essential for construction and excavation projects, as they quickly shape the terrain you’ll be using into something more functional and habitable. At Edmond Excavation Experts, we’re well-versed in handling all the general earthwork that goes into a variety of residential and commercial projects, and we’re more than happy to manage any kind of project you have in mind. Other excavation companies won't match our service, quality, or experience – We dare someone to outdo us!
What is General Earthwork?
Given its widespread use and critical importance, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that earthwork is a fairly broad term that envelopes several different types of excavation services. Put simply, earthwork is where heavy machinery is used to excavate or construct structures by shifting dirt/earth/soil (or in our case sometimes RED dirt or clay) from the ground elsewhere – and it sees widespread use in a variety of different construction projects. It’s most commonly associated with civil engineering, hydroengineering, and transportation – but has pretty much universal application for any construction purposes you could ever think of commercially or domestically.
Calculations and Measurements
To have a successful project, you need to have a very clear idea of the timeframe and material requirements involved with the construction. We use sophisticated calculation software to allow us to accurately measure how much earth might be needed to build a structure, or how much will be removed by an excavator during the process. While this is partly important for getting a clear idea of the excavation costs involved, it’s even more crucial for ensuring the project runs smoothly without any mishaps.
Professional Grade Equipment
Make no mistake, for many projects where earthwork is involved, you could be looking at shifting hundreds or even thousands of tons of earth – and those are conservative numbers. The point is, no human wouldn’t stand a chance at managing such processes without powerful, professional equipment. We have a range of different full size and mini excavator machines that are well suited to specific tasks depending on your needs. We only use top line equipment that guarantees a job well done, so you can have total peace of mind that things will run smoothly when you decide to hire our team.
There are many different applications for earthwork due to the variability and flexibility of earthwork processes – and we’re more than happy to get involved with any of them that you’re handling. Earthwork can be used in the construction of canals, highways, railroads, foundation pits, and so much more – this really is just the tip of the iceberg.
