Bulk Earthworks


Cardan Excavation also offers Bulk Earthworks, which involves the preparation of a site through the removal or relocation of large quantities of unwanted soil, rocks, bushes, trees and weeds, making it a suitable elevation for construction.


The objective of Bulk Earthworks is to reuse excavated materials as much as possible to prevent the costly removal of waste material and the delivery of additional earth materials.


Bulk Earthworks is performed in two ways:


  • By stripping and excavating an area of ground
  • By constructing a new area, such as an embankment, by adding earth to that location


Bulk Earthworks are needed for a wide range of construction projects including:


  • Roads
  • Berms
  • Mines
  • Highways
  • Railways
  • Causeways
  • Levees
  • Dams
  • Canals
  • Trenches
  • Residential and commercial buildings


Due to the large quantity of materials that need to be relocated or removed, Bulk Earthworks requires heavy construction equipment including:


  • Graders
  • Rollers
  • Dump Trucks
  • D6 Bulldozers
  • Large Excavators
  • Shovels
  • Diggers
  • Back Hoes
  • Loaders
  • Rock trucks
  • Packers
