3 Services General Contractors Perform During the Site Development Process, Troy, Alabama

Whether you want to expand the driveway of your business or install the foundation for a multi-level office building, there is a certain amount of preparation required before your general contractor can begin building just the foundation. The construction services experts from Midsouth Paving in Dothan, Alabama, want you to understand how preparing a site for a building is a vital job, so they’ve gathered a bit more information about it. 

3 Things General Contractors Do Before Building Begins

1. Excavation

One of the first things any property will need before building can commence is excavation to remove any hindrances, such as large mounds of dirt, trees, shrubs, rocks, and other items that could be in the way of construction crews. To ensure the excavation of your property goes smoothly, the professionals from Midsouth Paving recommend hiring a general contractor that offers a comprehensive range of services and is familiar with all aspects of site preparation.

For those installing either a building or a roadway that must be level, general contractors will always need to perform grading services on your property before any major construction begins. They do this by flattening the land of your construction site and measuring it with a level to ensure construction is sturdy and in exceptional condition. 

3. Drainage

Installing drainage after a construction project has begun is both inefficient and costly. Because of this, many general contractors will recommend developing a drainage strategy as part of the site preparation process. Hiring a team to assess your property and install any drainage fixtures needed will help ensure the rest of your construction project will proceed without incident, as well as eliminate the need to perform costly drainage additions later.
