What Is Mass Excavation

Mass excavation is the process of removing large amounts of earth and other materials with machinery. There is no set size for a project to define it as mass excavation – it is more down to the equipment used.

Excavators with a reinforced body and undercarriage are generally used for mass excavation. The machinery may also have a stronger stick, boom, and cylinders than a typical machine.

Mass excavation machinery needs to be robust enough to handle large amounts of continuous work, and are larger overall than standard excavation machines.

Typical Mass Excavation Projects

There is a wide range of projects that require mass excavation. Due to the scale and importance of many commercial projects, it is important to get things done right and not cut corners.

Demolition

When demolishing a building or structure the debris will need to be removed. Any debris is first excavated, and then more earth, making the site ready for the new project.

Site Preparation

Site preparation is essential for any project that involves a new building construction. Solid foundations and stable ground are absolutely necessary. This means the whole area needs excavating. The larger the building, the larger the excavation.

This also comes into play when utilities such as gas lines or power lines are being installed or replaced.

Water Excavation

Water excavation is done when water lines are being replaced or installed. This also includes drainage systems.

Sewer Excavation

Like water excavation, this is for replacing or installing sewer systems. This is generally a quick and simple operation.
