Basically, excavation work involves digging up the ground and removing dirt and debris to make a hole. Residential, commercial and municipal excavation plays a large role in the construction industry.

Not all excavation work is the same; some jobs are larger than others and require more heavy machinery and labor to get the job done – something reflected in the cost of the job.

Examples of Excavation Work in Construction

These examples involve installing a new structure or construction materials.

Before undertaking excavation work, it’s important to hire an experienced general contractor with the right knowledge and training to get the job done. OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, has strict safety guidelines in place which must be followed at all times.

A qualified general contractor should offer the following before beginning any excavation work on your property.

  • On-Site Walk Through
  • Free Estimate (Includes materials, machine rentals & labor)
  • Dig-Safe (Make sure no underground utilities are located on excavation site)
  • Which Permits are Required (These are needed before the job can begin)
