Foundation Construction

A properly constructed foundation plays a pivotal role in the structural integrity of the building that will be placed on the land. Parker Excavation uses excavating equipment to help shape the building site for construction, depending on the Excavation-moving needs that are required for the excavation project. We have the ability to shape, move, remove, add, and process soil to prepare the construction site.

The experience that our excavating contractors bring to each project will allow us to strategically configure the topography of the site to meet the required specifications of the project. We will properly stabilize the foundation to ensure the integrity of the building when it is constructed.


If your construction site requires trenching, Parker Excavation offers the experience needed to complete your project while complying with city and state regulations. Trenching might be required in order to shape the land to match the construction regulations of the building that will be constructed on the land. The trenching contractors will review the requirements and code associated with your future building construction to offer professional guidance on trenching of your lot.

The total land clearing services that we provide include removing trees, stumps, debris, and other obstacles that might be preventing the building site from being worked on.

Our land excavators will carefully review the site with you and prepare it for the required construction specifications.

Site Work Contractor FAQ’s

What Is Included In Site Work Construction?

Site work construction encompasses a large part of the total construction project because it is typically considered to be anything that is worked on except for the building of the physical structure. This means it can be constructing the foundation of the building, trenching, excavating septic systems, digging pipelines, land clearing, pond excavation, soil stabilization, concrete placing, and many other services. Site work can make or break a project which makes it incredibly important to lay a good foundation in order to get a high-quality end product.

What Does An Excavating Contractor Do?

It is common to think that excavating contractors only dig and haul dirt out of a job site, but excavating contractors are actually responsible for grading the soil, clearing the land, preparing the job site, and other tasks. One of the most important tasks that an excavator is responsible for is preparing the job site for construction. If the job site isn’t prepared properly it can make it difficult for the project to have success.

What Are The Different Types Of Excavation Used On Construction Sites?

There are a wide variety of different excavation techniques that are used on construction sites. These different techniques are used in a variety of different situations. Depending on the type of project you have it is common to see excavation techniques such as channel excavation, bridge digging, drainage excavation, dredging, much digging, stripping, topsoil removal, borrowing, footing, or other techniques. Having a variety of different excavation techniques in their arsenal can provide a job site excavator with the tools needed to work on a large variety of different projects.

What Is The Excavation Process?

Excavation of a construction site can be a long process or a relatively short process depending on the project. The process is important to do well as this is the groundwork of the entire project. If the job site work isn’t done well, then it will be difficult for the project as a whole to go well. The excavation process typically begins with an analysis of the area. This is where the action plan is written up as well as all of the potential trouble areas such as piping or septic systems to be aware of before digging begins. The action plan is vital in order to keep the project on the set timeline as well as make sure than materials such as underground wiring or piping isn’t accidentally damaged.

What Is Construction Trenching?

Trenching is a common technique used in the excavation process because of its ability to accurately place underground infrastructure without having to dig up the entire site. Trenches are diggings that are long, narrow, and deeper than they are wide. This is different than typical excavation as those are typically holes that are roughly equal when it comes to their dimensions. Trenches are typically used when placing long infrastructure such as gas lines, water piping, or electrical wiring. The trenching will protect them because of how deep the trenches are typically dug. Trenching can be difficult to perform because of how narrow they are dug which leaves the susceptible to collapse and flooding. Our job site professionals are trained to deal with trenching as well as various other methods of excavation and construction site preparation.
