Bulk earthworks involve removing, moving or adding large amounts of soil, rock, or other material from a site, in preparation for a construction project. Bulk earthworks contractors are often employed to support residential or commercial projects to bring the land to a suitable level to build foundations and structures on.
When are Bulk Earthworks Required?
Bulk earthworks are required to support a wide range of construction projects, such as the building of the following:-
Creating a new area by adding earth-based materials to a specific location
When Bulk earthworks are taking place, the aim is to reuse the excavated materials as much as possible to prevent the costly collection of waste material and the delivery of extra earth materials.
This is achieved by using specialised computer software to calculate the amount of material that will be cleared and create a programme to execute the work efficiently.
WHAT METHODS OF EXCAVATIONS ARE USED IN BULK EARTHWORKS?
The type of excavation used may be determined by the material being extracted or the purpose of excavation.
When the Bulk earthworks are classified according to purpose, these purposes can include roadway, bridge, structure, footing, and drainage excavations.
When the excavation is determined on the material being excavated, the material must be correctly identified to keep costs down and avert technical problems from occurring. Surveyors and engineers will then measure how easy or hard the earth is to dig and determine an extraction programme accordingly.
WHAT EQUIPMENT IS USED FOR BULK EARTHWORKS?
Heavy plant machinery is required to manage the task of removing and moving large quantities of soil, rock or other materials.
