When is Bulk Excavation Required?

Large excavations are commonly needed on construction sites where roads, railways, buildings, car parks and other infrastructure is being built. Precise site cuts are made to bring the land to the level needed to lay the foundations and build the structure.

What Type of Machinery is Used?

The right plant for the bulk excavation job depends largely on the type of material being dug, the aspect and access of the site and the amount of material that needs to be excavated and moved. Smaller machinery or those with zero swing are needed if access is difficult, and bigger machines are used for large-scale projects. Often on site during bulk excavations you’ll see other machinery working alongside the excavators too, including dump trucks, graders, bulldozers, rollers and more.

Where is it used?

Bulk Excavation may be needed for a wide range of construction developments to be completed, including.

Where Do the Excavated Materials Go?

If the excavated materials can’t be reused on site to fill other areas, it will be taken away on trucks to be used as fill on another site or disposed of. Removing it from site can be quite costly, so always explore your options to move it elsewhere on your site if possible, first.
