Get your project off to the perfect start with our excavation expertise…
Basements are generally below ground level and can be constructed using treated wood, brick or poured or pre-cast concrete. Concrete basements however, are unmatched for strength and durability.
The extent to which we excavate depends on the size of your project, as a larger building with a basement below it, requires a considerably deeper excavation pit.
At Amazing Construction, we are equally adept at excavating basement areas of the kind needed for poured concrete, concrete blocks, pre-cast panels or stone wall basements.
Our familiarity with the local laws for basement excavation, heavy equipment like excavators and earth movers, and design codes stand us in good stead.
Not to be confused with gravel driveways, which are common especially in residential properties, gravel roads require large and heavy machinery to work and pour concrete or to lay and smooth a bitumen-based surface.
The equipment is generally in the nature of front loaders dump trucks, graders, and road rollers to provide a base course of compacted earth or other material, covered with one or more different layers of gravel. Graders are used to “blade” the road’s surface involving several roller passes to evenly spread the gravel.
Work starts with the base layer. The road is designed based on the estimated traffic volume that the road with experience. Thickness of the layers and that of the gravel surface are determined by load.
The surface layer is constructed atop the base layer. The gravel used herein consists of varying amount of crushed stone, sand, and rounded pebbles.
Amazing Construction has considerable experience in construction and maintenance of gravel roads.
A trench is a crevice of large dimensions created in the ground. It is normally rectangular in nature and is generally has more depth than width. Trenches typically serve a variety of purposes like providing lines for service amenities and creation of foundation spaces.
At Amazing Construction, we use mechanical excavators to create your trenches, taking care to excavate with care so as to avoid collapse or caving in of adjoining earth areas with timber or steel struts or boards, in the event of mudslides as in the case of heavy rains. Where necessary, the earth is shored up using diaphragm walls.
Our heavy equipment, as in the case of excavation for basements, is located at the site of the project for an extended period of time, generally running into a few months, considering the intricacy of the work involved.
Part of the substructure of a construction, excavation for footing is extremely important, because footing is required to take the load of the entire superstructure on it.
Footing is therefore a kind of foundation which rests almost in its entirety on the soil. Footing transfers the load to a larger soil area. The materials used for footing usually consist of slabs or rebars. Footings are constructed with brickwork, masonry, or concrete.
We have extensive experience in constructing footing for installations of various types, applying the necessary design and construction codes that will ensure structurally-solid footings for your premises.
Part of the substructure, the foundation constitutes the lowest part of the structure being built. Its key function is to transfer the load of the higher components of the structure to the soil.
Essentially of 2 types – namely shallow foundations and deep foundations, they get their name from the depth to which excavation is needed to be done. A shallow foundation requires excavation in the range of 1.5 metres below the soil surface, with the superstructure above it generally being a low-height structure. For a larger structure involving many floors, deep foundations with far deeper excavation areas are needed.
The kind of soil also plays a role in the depth to which excavation needs to be done. Soft soil for example will need excavation to the rock strata levels, irrespective of the height of the superstructure on which it sits.
Our experience includes excavation for a variety of foundations, and along with excavation can be extended to other areas like creation of the foundation in the nature of wall creation and slab creation using poured concrete.
