There are several steps in residential and commercial excavation. From permitting and planning to digging, demolishing, and filling, here’s how our Kamloops excavation contractors will help you excavate your land.

Preparing For Excavation

Before the dig begins, all permits, zoning, and engineering plans must be completed. As your farm and home excavation contractors, we work closely with permit services, utility companies, and land surveyors to prepare the area for excavation. We also ensure the area is clear of potential obstacles such as trees, boulders, logs, roots, etc. to start with a clean and stable environment.

1. Demolition

If there are pre-existing structures on the property, we will remove them with minimal damage and disturbance to the rest of the land.

2. Trenching

To make room for utilities, foundations, pools, and more, we will dig a hole that’s deeper than it is wide, otherwise known as trenching.

3. Backfilling

We will reuse or replace the soil that is removed during the excavation to protect the foundation and partially form the substructure.

4. Tie-In-Services

To ensure your property runs smoothly, our experts will dig and run water and sewer tie-in lines from the municipal water main to your residential or commercial building.

5. Trenching Utilities

During the excavation of your property, we will trench the area to make room for utilities such as gas and water mains, pipelines, communication lines, and a variety of other underground infrastructures.

6. Driveway Prep

Before laying the driveway, any debris, turf, and topsoil will need to be removed, followed by precise digging to the correct depth.

7. Retaining Walls

Especially important in wet climates, retaining walls prevent soil from shifting or sliding on sloped lots.

8. Pool Excavation

Looking to include a swimming pool in your backyard? We can ensure your pool is levelled, safe, and excavated with the correct dimensions.

9. Grading

Once the foundations have been poured and filled, it’s crucial that the base is level to a specific slope. This promotes surface drainage, improves the landscape, and acts as the base for driveways, sidewalks, and roads.

10. Hauling

Our professional excavation contractors ensure the thorough removal of any dirt, debris, and rubble from the site.

11. Foundation Repairs

If the concrete beneath your property is in distress, this can lead to major structural damage. Issues with the foundation typically stem from water damage or unstable clay and soil beneath, causing cracks, structural damage, and loss of real estate value.

12. Window Wells

To protect your windows from water damage when installed below grade on your building’s exterior, proper drainage is a must. With our mini excavator, our team install a window well to seal entry points and promote drainage.

13. Fence Post Auguring

To ensure the stability of fence and deck builds, our team will drill a precise line of perfect holes using an augur.

14. Digging Pits

We can provide quick and accurate pit digging without damaging your property.

15. Dugouts

For rural residents, dugouts (or ponds) can be manually constructed to ensure you have a water reservoir for your livestock, crops, household uses, and aquaculture.
