Foundation Excavation

Foundation excavation is the most important element of residential construction. Digging up soil and creating a depression in the earth lays the groundwork for a future home. The foundation excavation process ensures future structural stability and integrity. We provide bespoke solutions based on the type of foundation you intend to build (e.g., slab, concrete, crawl space, or basement) and the soil conditions of the property.

Sewer and Water Installation

Sewer and water line installation lays the infrastructure that connects a property to the municipal water supply. Our team ensures that our sewer and water installation complies with all local and state regulations and building codes to achieve the appropriate depth that prevents pipe freezing and ensures uninterrupted flow.

Utilities Trenching

Before a property can be connected to powerlines, it must have installed utility cables and connected underground. Our hydro-vac utilities trenching services minimize property damage and use a non-destructive, water- and vacuum-based technique to dig to the appropriate depth. We can trench for telecommunications, electrical, gas, and water lines for homes of all sizes. 

Grading and Drainage Solutions

Grading involves shaping the surrounding land of a construction site to prevent water buildup that could threaten the property’s structural integrity. Grading ensures adequate drainage and helps manage stormwater runoff, prevents erosion, and maintains the quality of the site. Our expert grading and drainage solutions include installing drainage pipes, culverts, digging ditches, and developing tailored solutions that will manage water flow. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Excavation times vary considerably depending on the size of the property, the planned construction, and the acquisition of permits. The time frame can span anywhere from several days to several weeks. We will work with you to determine an accurate timetable for your project.
