Quality Construction Services: Site Clearing, Clean Up and Rubbish Removal

28 February 2018

Accomplished site clearing services don’t get the recognition they deserve. That seems unfair. After all, how could a construction project move forward if there was rubbish dumped all over the place? Not only that, the scrap could be leftover from a recently demolished structure. What if there’s asbestos or rebar hanging around? In truth, a quality construction service needs to start before the construction. Let’s start with that rubbish.

Land Clearing Services: Removing The Rubbish

Before the land is graded, before the trenches are excavated, all that scrap needs to be swept away. A number of dumpsters are on their way. They’ll park at the edge of the site. Carefully, an excavator scoops up the trash. A work team gathers all the lighter rubbish, bags it, and dumps those bags back at the open-top dumpster. This is basic good housekeeping, but there’s more to the work than picking up litter. A consulting engineer puts on his hard hat and heads down to the site. It’s time to check for hazardous materials.

Assessing Those Pre-Existing Structures

An empty lot isn’t too hard to clear. If there are cables crossing the site, the engineer will mark those runs with spray paint. Now the trenching work would commence. However, the removal of an existing wall or floor requires more planning. Old cables will be pulled, but that can only happen if they’re clearly marked as de-energized. Concrete blocks and rebar strips also get the shove, as do the walls stuffed with asbestos. Logistically speaking, the consulting engineer needs to safely manage these hazardous services. After all, the demolition of an existing building is bound to produce waste, and some of that scrapped building material will be classed as hazardous.

All-Inclusive Clearing Services

Picture the operation, the complexity that must accompany this work stage. Stumps and bushes are stripped away. Close behind them, general scrap and rubbish leave the property. Are there hazardous materials? Leftover from the demolition work, those dangerous materials leave when a properly conducted hazard abatement program completes. A concrete remediation phase takes care of the old drainage system, then uncovered infrastructural assets are scoured away so that a fresh network of culverts and fluid conduits can be interred. Layer by layer, the service clears the site.

After the cleanup, the rubbish and scrap are gone. The dumpsters are loaded back onto their mobile flatbed trucks, and the land is empty. Cables have been marked and possibly rerouted. Even the old drainage system has been stripped away. Thanks to that site cleanup service, the zoned land is prepped for the construction stage. All-in-all, it takes an authoritative coordinating force, a professional consulting team, to orchestrate these services.
