Land Clearing For Commercial Property

Clearing a commercial lot and preparing the land to build is a tough process but it does include many perks. When you decide to clear your land, you offer potential client’s visibility to your commercial property and offer much needed curb appeal. Also, clearing the land for commercial property use will create less maintenance for buyers.

However, when it comes to land clearing for commercial property, it’s much more than just removing trees and digging holes. When you walk across the ground of an empty lot, the dirt and land can seem solid, but it might be a different story when the heavy equipment starts working its way around. Not only is the weight of the equipment a factor, but what about the commercial building that’s planned to go on the property?

The weight of a building has a different impact on the ground beneath it than a human. That’s why Marks Clearing and Grading utilizes excavation. When the land clearing professionals at Marks Clearing and Grading excavate your commercial property, they are preparing the ground to support what will be built on it, which is far more detailed and precise than most people believe. That’s why when you are deciding to clear land or trees for commercial use, it is best to contact the land clearing professionals at Marks Clearing and Grading.

Getting Started On Clearing Your Land For Commercial Use

When you start on your land clearing project, the first things that need to be safely and appropriately removed are the trees, rocks and existing structures. This is usually done in the excavation process, but it is the place to start when it comes to clearing your land for building construction.

Land clearing doesn’t mean that your commercial building site is reduced to nothing but bare earth. In the excavator process, Marks Clearing and Grading will discuss what you want removed and kept. Excavators can be tasked with preserving certain trees, hills and geological elements, and at Marks Clearing and Grading, we go above and beyond to ensure the health of the trees and vegetation that you want to remain intact.

Preparing Your Cleared Land For Commercial Construction

The objective of excavation in the land clearing process is to prepare the earth to support the building being constructed on it. This can mean moving and adding material, as types of soil can behave differently when they are compacted. It’s the excavator’s responsibility to work with construction architects to ensure that the soil offers a dependable surface to support the building. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) puts soils into four categories, which are sorted by stability.

 Stability is the main concern because a cubic yard of soil can weigh more than 3,000 pounds. It's why excavation is also a science. It takes calculated and precise movements to position soil on a site to correctly support the project. It’s also why civil engineers and geological inspections are attached to the excavation process involved with commercial construction.

 The right type of excavation is also crucial for the creation of proper drainage on a piece of land, especially if the topography has been changed to accommodate the building. Often, this involves working with excavators to decide the way to create the smallest amount of impact to the existing parcel.

 Sites for new buildings, especially in urban areas, may need to be rehabilitated if preparatory testing discovers that the soil was contaminated by previous usage. This process is undertaken by excavating companies that collect the contaminated soil for relocation. These excavation site workers do more than remove the soil, they also work to monitor dust control. 

Preparing your land to build is a lot more work than people originally think. There are so many small contributing factors that play a role in clearing the land for commercial use. The best place to start when you decide to start land clearing for commercial property is to contact the professionals at Marks Clearing and Grading in Augusta.

Are You Ready to Clear Your Land for Commercial Building Construction?

Are you ready to clear your land for commercial building construction? When you are preparing a site for commercial construction, it involves more than only clearing the land, trees and debris. The overall project includes the cooperation of a group of professionals and experts in various fields ranging from engineering to geology. The soil on the site must be made “competent,” or strong enough to withstand the forces that the load of the building will put on it, and excavators are also responsible for the integrity of their work, as well as the consequences on the surrounding areas. That is why choosing a reliable and experienced land clearing company, like Marks Clearing and Grading in Augusta is so important. Marks Clearing and Grading has been proven effective in clearing commercial property and providing premier land clearing services across the CSRA.
