Site Work

Jacksonville's Preferred Demolition Contractor

Site work is the work that needs to be done to a site before it can be built upon, whether you are constructing a building, a road, or other structure. This entails grading to ensure a flat surface, and the removal of vegetation, rocks, debris, leaves, trees, and any other structure that may be unwanted on the site. It is usually the first task that must be completed before any other process can be performed.

ELEV8 Demolition offers site prep work to help you get ready for your build or to help you improve your existing site. From grading to drainage and site development services, we've got your needs covered. Reach out to our local demolition company for a free estimate today!

Rough and Finished Grading

Rough and Finished Grading

Rough and finished grading is the terms given to the process of smoothing out and leveling land and soil. Rough grading in particular refers to the process of ensuring a proper slope for grading purposes. Finished grading is the process of preparing the top layer of soil for whatever use you intend for the land, from laying a foundation to planting sod. Rough grading is a definite skill since too much of a slope towards your home can cause flooding, while too little can cause drainage issues as well. Finished grading is much more of an artform than skill and takes practice to master perfectly. In the finished grading process, much of the rocks are removed and the emphasis is on uniformity and usability. Contact ELEV8 Demolition in Jacksonville to learn more.

Backfill and Compaction Services

Backfill refers to the process of putting soil and dirt back once a hole has been dug or significant amounts of dirt have been moved. However, backfill is more than just throwing dirt in a hole and calling it good. The soil has to be compacted, taking care around subterranean items, such as pipes, shafts, cables, or other items in the ground. ELEV8 Demolition backfills many pools after a pool removal job, as well as trenches that have been dug for other purposes, such as for utility installation or for plumbing repairs.

Residential and Commercial Site Development

Residential and Commercial Site Development

Site development is the process that takes place after site preparation. So after the land has been graded, a project manager usually takes over in order to develop the site. Every site is different, which means every site development plan will be different. For example, if you are making improvements around an existing building, you will most likely be preparing for landscaping, storm sewer systems, parking and utility installation, and more. If you are preparing for a construction build, you'll be digging a lot of trenches in order to lay the foundations for the building itself. Contact ELEV8 Demolition with the specifics of your Jacksonville-area residential or commercial site development project today.

Site Drainage

Site drainage often has to do with directing the flow of water in order to avoid any backup or waterlogging, which can then result in structures flooding or suffering water damage of some kind. Gutters, drains, and sewer systems all play a role in ensuring water is siphoned off to an area where it can do no harm to structures. If you look around you, you'll notice many devices that help with the safe flow of water. You'll see drainage ponds that can hold accumulated water from rainfall. Gutters on homes and in the streets help to ensure rainwater enters the gutters and then are diverted safely away. You may even see drains in parking lots to help, too. ELEV8 Demolition can help with all of your drainage solutions. Call today!
