Excavation Work

Are you searching for excavating companies near me? Or, do you need to excavate land on a commercial or industrial property? Whether it’s a commercial or industrial site, excavation is a large segment of a construction project. The excavating stage typically comes after plans are drawn and permits are in place.


Here are a few ways that Barker & Barker Paving can help with excavation for your next project.


When You Prepare a Site

Are you unsure what is paving site preparation? Paving Site preparation often will involve a few key steps, but these can vary. Typically, a site can take several days or weeks to prepare before a construction or paving project starts.


Paving Site preparation might include:


  • Building: Workers may need to clear an area for an access road to transport equipment to/from the property.

  • Clearing and Demolishing: Rocks, trees, debris, and any vegetation need to be removed.

  • Grading and Leveling: The soil might be tested or the site might need to be leveled.

Surveying: A survey may need to be taken of the area for property boundaries. And, a stake may need to be built.

Excavation Project Costs

What are typical excavation costs like? That’s a question you might ask when you’re looking at a new construction project. Costs can vary as there are several factors that can affect an excavation.


Project costs might start at a few hundred dollars or they can cost several thousands of dollars. Other factors that affect costs can include site cleaning, steel beams, wood framing, and pouring concrete walls. When you need a site excavated, it’s not just labor costs and manpower, but special machinery and tools used during the project.


We may need to employ:


  • Land surveyors and draftspeople.

  • Architects and a construction manager.

  • A demolition or soil expert.

Factors that Affect How an Excavation Site is Evaluated

Because every job site is different, costs might vary depending on a few specific factors. If the area is remote, it may prove challenging to get large machinery to the site. Or, if there are several older trees that have to be removed, it can take more time. Some job sites even require demolition. It’s for these reasons that we offer free estimates. With an evaluation, we can give you an accurate quote for your job site.


Factors that can affect excavation sites include:

  • What is the surface land like? Will we need to clear, trench, dig, or grade the area?

  • How accessible is the site? Is it remote? Are there large trees blocking routes to the site?

  • How large is the project? How much soil needs to be removed?

  • Where is the land located? What time of year is it? Is it winter and is the ground frozen? Is it a forest with wildlife that might be displaced?
