What is bulk excavation?
Bulk excavation is the process of removing large quantities of soil, clay, ballast, concrete, or other materials from an area in preparation for commencement of further works or a change in landscape. Bulk excavation is regularly carried out in construction projects, as for many projects the ground needs to be made suitable for the task ahead or before construction commences – especially for infrastructure operations.
We are also trusted sub-contractors for other groundworks, construction and enabling companies requiring bulk excavations, and where careful planning needs to be undertaken to ensure a well-built support system, shuttering or shoring of the surrounding area or buildings. Deep excavations often require a longer schedule and can impact the cost of your overall project, but our team of contractors can complete all work at a competitive price.
Our Bulk Excavation Process
Depending on the material or location to be excavated, our team works alongside the designated structural engineer to evaluate:
- The ground make up
- The surrounding area
- Groundwater levels
- Drainage requirements
and many other important factors to establish a methodology for removing the materials whilst ensuring the surrounding area be kept in situ and safe. We would calculate the quantity of materials to be removed and the cost to either remove from them from the site or relocate them. We factor in machinery, equipment and operatives required to complete the project.
If you’re looking to instruct a company to complete a comprehensive bulk excavation at a competitive rate, The Demolition Firm can assist. We operate across St Albans, Hertford, Beaconsfield and the home counties, serving both the public and private sectors.
