Bulk earthworks Processes

Bulk earthworks is the process of moving large quantities of material, such as soil or rock from one are to another. It may also invoice the removal or adding of extra material. Depending on the construction process or site plans, bulk earthworks are performed to prepare a site for construction. This may include lifting or lowering the ground level and ensuring it is stable for building.

Bulk earthworks are mainly performed in two ways:

  • Cutting into or excavating an area of ground
  • Adding earth based materials to a certain location to constructing a new area, such as an embankment.

Specialised computer software is used to calculate the amount of material that will be needed for a specific project and how much material is expected to be removed. To prevent both the costly collection of waste material and the delivery of extra materials, the aim is to reuse as much as possible of the excavated materials.
