Excavation is used in construction to create building foundations, reservoirs and roads. Some of the different processes used in excavation include trenching, digging, dredging and site development. Each of these processes requires unique techniques, tools and machinery to get the job done right. The processes used will depend upon the structure that will result from the construction process.
How does the process work?
Before the excavation process can begin, the site must be carefully examined to make sure that the natural habitat and artifacts surrounding it are persevered throughout excavation. Next, the plans for the size and depth of the site are made. Once these two important steps have been taken, the excavation work can begin. The entire excavation process includes:
- setting out corner benchmarks
- surveying ground and top levels
- excavation to the approved depth
- dressing the loose soil
- making up to cut off level
- the construction of dewatering wells and interconnecting trenches
- making boundaries of the building
- the construction of protection bunds and drains
Where is excavation construction used?
Excavation construction is used during the construction process of almost every structure we encounter throughout our lives. It is used to build the foundation for the construction of homes, roadways, and buildings and creates reservoirs like lakes and pools. It is also relied upon for the mining of precious metals and minerals.
