Excavation: Grading and Sitework

About this Process

These three services usually go hand in hand. Most of the time these three services follow a machine demolition, but they can be done individually!


Excavation is the digging by machine to prepare for the installment of a block and poured foundation or superior walls.

Backfill is completed after the excavation is done, and the foundation or superior walls have been installed. Backfilling is the process of putting soil back into a trench or foundation once excavation and the related work has been completed. The backfill is usually completed using machines and machine operators based on plans provided by the contractor.

Grading is the work of ensuring a level base for a construction work such as a foundation.. A rough grade is done immediately following the demolition of a structure and a final grade is done at the completion of a project before soil stabilization.
