Earthwork & Excavating

BuildPro STL can dig it!

BuildPro STL Construction Earthwork and Excavating Division is lead by some of the industry’s top professionals with decades of experience completing some of the Midwest’s biggest and most demanding earthwork projects. No matter what your project requires, BuildPro’s team will move heaven and earth to complete the job on time and on budget.

We are Grounded
In Earthwork

Site grading, excavation, and land development are among our core earthwork services. Each project that BuildPro STL takes on begins with value engineering and pre-construction logistics to determine a detailed feasibility analysis, budget development, and a risk mitigation strategy.

Decades of experience and systematic planning, including the use of 3D images, for the site clearing and preparation of raw land for its intended use is what separates BuildPro STL from other contractors…. contractors who approach every job like it’s a nail and their only tool is a hammer.

Earthwork and excavation may look like an act of brute force with big, powerful machines, but in reality, when done correctly, proper preparation of the earth for a higher and better use is an artistic endeavor completed by skilled craftsmen.

Whether the ultimate purpose is commercial, retail, quarry, environmental, energy, or public works, BuildPro STL’s team of professionals will ensure your project’s success. Keep reading to learn more about our earthwork and excavation specialties.

Site Demolition

Site Demolition, or razing, is the science and engineering of safely and efficiently tearing down buildings and other structures. The veterans at BuildPro STL Construction’s Earthworks Division have decades of experience successfully demo’ing and removing old structures to make room for the new.

Mass Excavation

Mass excavation is the removal of large amounts of materials using big machines over an extended period of time in order to prepare a site for a new, more substantial, purpose. BuildPro STL has the talent, experience, man and machine power to get the job done, on point, on time, and on budget.

Clearing & Grubbing

Clearing & Grubbing is the removal and disposal of all unwanted surface material, such as trees, brush, grass, weeds, downed trees, as well as all unwanted vegetative matter from underground, such as stumps, roots, buried logs, and other debris. BuildPro STL clears and grubs like nobody’s business…because that is our business.

Site Grading

In addition to leveling out the ground to provide a sturdy foundation for construction sites, grading is also used to direct the flow of runoff water. When sites aren’t properly engineered, it can cause problems to a home or commercial building and its surrounding property. Issues like erosion, foundation damage, and basement flooding can all occur when properties aren’t graded to facilitate proper drainage.

Soil Remediation & Stabilization

Soil remediation and stabilization is a toolbox of processes and equipment for purifying and revitalizing the soil at a site that is being decommissioned, prepped for first-time use, or being reconditioned for a new purpose. It is a process of removing contaminants in order to protect both the health of the population and the environment, as well as stabilizing the soil in order to prepare it for building or other construction such as roads.

Transportation & Industrial Infrastructure

Transport infrastructure includes canals, waterways, airways, railways, roads, and terminals, as well as pipelines such as seaports, refueling depots, trucking terminals, warehouses, bus & railway stations, and airports. As you would think, a tremendous amount of earthwork must be done for all of these projects, and BuildPro STL loves doing them all.
