Earthmoving and Soil Fundamentals
Excavation Contractors Sunshine Coast
Whatever you may be building, some materials will certainly have to be removed before any concrete is laid. The site must first be assessed, based on what must be cleared and which techniques used to do this. There are different types of excavation — which process of removing earth to form a cavity should be used. Most plans include excavation, hauling, disposal and compaction. A soil sample and testing will usually be required since the type, density and moisture content of the soil determine the necessary procedures before the concrete can be poured.
Planning requires dividing the project into manageable tasks by different machines, and calculating the times for these tasks based on machine productivity, i.e. performance and soil.
Other essentials are:
• The principles, issues and challenges of earth and soil
• Relevant subsurface exploration
• Construction implementation
• Appreciation of slope stability, pavement sub-grades, and the need for retaining walls
• Understanding of soil on any projects where earthworks and foundations are involved.
A typical site work task progression would be:
• Topsoil removal
• Excavation (for utilities and foundations)
• Removal of excavation materials not needed for backfill
• Backfill for trenches and foundations
• Site grading
• Spreading topsoil and landscaping.
