How do I prepare for an excavation contractor?
Do what you can to make the area accessible as possible. If that’s beyond your capabilities, make sure you let the excavating company know ahead of time what obstacles they may face. You should also move anything on the property that will be in the way, if at all possible.
Should utilities be marked before the excavation contractor?
We handle calling Dig Safe to mark out the utilities. Any private utilities (dog fences, private electric lines, etc.) should be marked by the homeowner if possible. Communicate with your excavation company ahead of time to determine who will arrange having the utilities marked.
What precautions are taken for safety?
At Conifer Excavating we take every precaution for the safety of our team, our clients, and the property we’re excavating on. We avoid falls by avoiding the use of mobile equipment, and protect every trench we create. Prior to any digging, the soil is tested for potential issues and utility lines are mapped out and avoided. In the case of builds that take days or even weeks, inspections are done at the beginning of every day.
What kind of equipment is generally used for excavating?
The prime vehicle associated with excavating is the excavator itself—a large piece of machinery with a long bucket arm used for handling material, digging, and demolition. We also use backhoes, bulldozers, graders, trenchers, dump trucks, and a wide variety of general construction equipment. When it comes to excavation and demolition, you can never have too many options. Right down to the common sledge or jackhammer, if it’s right for the job it’s right for the job.
Are you insured?
Absolutely. Because we often work in dangerous situations, such as demolition jobs, we are fully insured for any scenario. In addition, we have many different certifications and licenses, which we’re happy to show on request.
