Site Preparation

After 50 years of working with municipalities, commercial developers and civil engineers, the team at Herbert Anderson, Jr. Construction, Inc. understands site preparation is crucial for the success of a project. There is not a single plan, or process, that fits every job because each project brings its own challenges and requirements. Every site preparation process is tailored to the existing terrain and conditions.

Site preparation may include demolition, excavation, clearing, and grubbing as well as blasting, test drilling, landfilling and leveling, mass grading and more to ensure that the land is ready to take on the foundation of the structure.

The site development and preparation processes can be above ground, below ground, or a combination of both. Collaboration with engineers, contractors, sub-contractors, and local code enforcement agents ensures that every step follows soil clearance, soil testing, designs plan, zoning restrictions, and safe workplace standards.

Proper Site Preparation

Every site preparation process looks different based on the land and the individual project requirements. For example, designing a site preparation plan for a new golf course looks much different than preparing a site for a new school or strip mall, but most projects have a few general objectives in common.

For example, once a site developer determines a location is ready to be prepped for construction, the first step is to properly clear and grade the site. During this process, workmen remove trees, natural vegetation, existing buildings, or demolition debris, and underground infrastructure, including utility lines, cables, pipes, septic tanks, and other obstacles that may impede the construction process or cause structural weakness in the future.

Depending on the land and the type of project, the Herbert Anderson team may use heavy equipment for large-scale excavation. Some projects require a flat, smooth, and level work area, while others, like a golf course, may require our team to expertly grade and shape the site around existing bodies of water and other natural elements, leaving the contours for both visual interest and athletic challenge.

Our site preparation team works closely with developers and engineers to make certain the area is suitable and ready for construction.
