At Timberley Projects, we work throughout West Sussex on all types of commercial groundworks projects. An integral part of many of those projects is excavation services. So, in this article, we thought we’d cover some of the factors we need to consider before we begin excavation work.
A focus on Excavation Services:
We have over twenty-five years of experience working in the groundworks industry. As a family-run business, we’re proud to say we have a reputation for quality workmanship, unrivalled reliability and professional project management. But, of course, we also need the right tools and machinery for each job. We’ve invested in diggers and excavators to help us complete projects effectively on time and within budget for excavation services.
But before we even climb into the cab, there are a few things we need to assess.
We’ll visit a site before starting any project, but this is vital when we’re excavating. We need to assess other buildings, drainage, and service installations within the vicinity.
The reason for the excavation:
How we excavate will differ depending on the job. When completing groundworks for landscaping, we need to preserve the subsoil. But if we’re preparing a site for building foundations, the requirement isn’t the same.
We’ve worked in and around West Sussex for decades, so we know regional soil types pretty well. We’ve worked with them all, from lime-rich chalk soils to free-draining sandy soils and everything in between. But any job involving excavation services will generally require more thorough soil surveys and analysis. That way, we know the most suitable methods and plant machinery to employ during the excavation.
