Why Excavation Work Is Essential to Your Construction Project, Honolulu, Hawaii

If you’re planning a major construction project like the addition of a new home, office building, pool, or underground parking lot, you’ll need to hire excavation contractors. For over 70 years, Tajiri Lumber has been providing demolition and excavation work to residents and businesses in the Honolulu, HI, area. Here, their team of professionals explains how an excavation contractor will help with your next construction project.

Here are some of the essential responsibilities performed by contractors hired for excavation work:

  • Preparing the Site: If you’re constructing a new home or office building, excavation contractors will prepare the site for construction. After the surveying crew has evaluated the site and determined the lot boundaries, the excavation crew will arrive. They’ll dig and remove the soil to the precise depth required for the building foundation. They’ll also perform compaction tests to ensure the soil is firm. If it isn’t firm enough, they’ll use equipment to compact it. Once the foundation contractor has poured the footers and stem wall, the excavation contractor will refill the area around the building foundation.
  • excavation workContracting: Excavation work is usually one part of a larger project with many components. For this reason, most excavation contractors are considered subcontractors. You may hire an excavation professional for a job like digging a hole for a swimming pool or home addition, but they won’t oversee the project. Much of the time, excavation contractors are employed through general contractor companies. 
  • Moving Dirt: A lot of excavation work has to do with moving dirt. Excavation professionals may perform this task for various purposes, including lot clearing and digging ponds or sewers. Excavators can also dig ditches for gas or water lines and create terraced drainage and build earthen dams.

Excavation work is a crucial part of the construction process, and if you’re in need of a contractor for this type of work, call the team at Tajiri Lumber today. Not only are they the oldest locally owned and operated firm in the industry, but they're also a member of the Hawaii Transportation Association and an EPA Lead-Safe Certified Firm. In addition to excavation, they offer an array of services including industrial and residential demolition, concrete recycling, and debris removal.
