Site Work Contractors
In construction, site work includes the scope of work related to the exterior of a project. Proper site work enables Sawyer-Elder Construction to get our construction sites ready for building and development. Many factors go into the preparation of a job site before building and development can begin, involving a range of different preparatory tasks depending on the condition of the site’s environment.
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the construction of the new building and overlook the project’s site work while getting started on the actual construction project. On both commercial and industrial projects, site work is just as crucial, if not more so, than your new structure.
Site work is best described as the process of preliminary work to prepare a construction site for building. It is an essential part of the construction process. Precautionary and preventative site work measures ensure the construction project will be a success. These kinds of activities vary based upon aspects like the needs of the project and environmental conditions. Such tasks include demolition, lot clearing, excavation, stabilization and shoring that ensures a safe, properly constructed stable foundation for your structure. Site work may also involve soil erosion and sediment control, construction and installation of septic tanks and filtration systems, driveways, sign and fence installation, and other utilities. Site work sets the stage for everything that is to come, protects the site, and helps minimize or eliminate a range of potential future problems. Some site work projects require more preparation than others.
It’s just as necessary to prepare a building site as it is to frame the walls and install the roof. Any work done on a construction site prior to when the actual construction takes place is referred to as site work. Plumbing, drainage and utility installation may or may not be included.
