During the planning and preparation for the building start, we collect information on ground conditions, underground structures or water courses and the location of existing services. If needed, we perform test excavation sections to determine the ground properties.
For safety reasons, our engineers inspect the excavation personally. No work can take place until the site engineer fills in the project diary that the excavation is safe. In case of need, supports are placed. Furthermore, a ground strength enhancement method is used if the characteristics of the foundation soil is considered not suitable to carry the structure loads adequately.
Prior to any excavations, our Topographers mark out the foundation perimeter. The excavation is performed according to the building permit’s approved plans.
The excavation of our projects is done be specialized crews who have been working with us for the last 20 years.
