Construction often involves the excavation and transport of material, it being a staple operation associated with minor building developing. These earthwork operations are primarily used to provide structurally capable soils, excavate areas for basements and other underground structures, and to compact fill materials to support the proposed structures.

DCE routinely provide advice and assistance when it comes to these Earthwork Designs and Specifications, establishing earthworks control for both natural and stabilised soils to provide a suitable and stable engineered fill material. We can also supervise and monitor the construction phase of the earthworks to ensure the fill material complies with the specification

Our earthworks and ground improvement experience includes:

  • Soil compaction parameters
  • Determination of settlement and soil acceptability criteria
  • Lime and Cement stabilisation
  • Preparation of earthworks specification
  • Advice on soil settlement characteristics
  • Supervision and monitoring of construction stage

    For examples of our projects that involve Earthwork Design and Specifications see Rushden Lakes Earthworks, Cannock Earthworks and Lynnsport1- Earthworks in Kings Lynn.
