Houston Concrete Construction: Site Work and Site Prep

When a construction contractor service company is contracted to prepare a commercial/Industrial location for clearing and proper site work, the parameters and details are extremely unique for each individual project. The considerations can seem endless. Bill Houston Concrete Construction, Inc. has over 30 years of experience and knowledge in Site Work and can help prevent setbacks and obstacles and ensure that the job gets done on time and within budget. Typically, our projects include commercial and industrial developments, metal building subgrade preparation, paving subgrade preparation, clearing and grubbing of acreage and new and reconstructed parking lot projects, just to mention a few. Our years of experience have provided our company with a comprehensive checklist comprised of proven systems.

Site work preparation usually begins with erosion control. Increasing governmental regulations require that construction sites place control measures to limit erosion damage to culverts, storm sewers, streams and wildlife. Once erosion controls have been placed, then the process of clearing and grubbing can commence. It is imperative that the job site supervisor adequately plans beforehand the methods of disposing the unwanted debris. Clearing can be described as the process of removing all unwanted trees, debris, brush, or any other inconvenient vegetation growth.

Subsequently, grubbing is the next step: It ensures the removal of the roots and stumps. Depending on the county’s statutes, small trees, stumps, and roots can be chipped and buried while other options include burning. On occasion, the burning of these cleared materials is legal but thorough research and diligence is required due to local laws and ordinances.

General prep and grading

  • Clearing
  • Grubbing and tree removal
  • Rough grading and Fine grading

Soil stabilization

  • Lime
  • Flyash

Stabilized/non-stabilized base

  • Cement stabilized/non-stabilized limestone
  • Cement stabilized/non-stabilized crushed concrete

Prior to paving, an all too important step of grading the subgrade must be performed. Grading is simply the process of moving material, sometimes just regular dirt, to create the proper elevation which ensures proper drainage for the concrete paving. Rough grading requires the use of scrapers and bulldozers to move large amounts of earth, while fine grading is necessary to create a final surface that is compact and smooth.

At times, the subgrade that will be used for a specific project isn’t stable enough. Soil stabilization refers to the process of spreading a pre-determined percentage of lime or flyash on the existing surface and thoroughly mixing it with the subgrade to a pre-determined depth. After compaction the results are a durable and stable subgrade.

When preparing to begin Site Work, the first item of business is to determine if the project is located within the city limits or the county. Depending on the location, the project may require permitting. Bill Houston Concrete Construction, Inc. can assist our customers or we handle the entire process for them. Here is a list of some of the most common docs that are necessary to get the process started:

  • Property survey
  • Type of existing grade elevations
  • Soils Report
