Full Site Work

Full site work excavation refers to the process of removing earth, rock, and other materials from a construction site to prepare it for building or development. This step is a crucial part of any construction project, whether it’s for residential, commercial, or infrastructure purposes.

Maine Dirt Doctor’s believe full site work excavation requires careful planning, adherence to local regulations, and compliance with safety standards. Proper site preparation ensures a stable foundation for the construction project and is vital for its long-term success.

Full site work excavation typically involves one or more of the following elements

Clearing and Demolition

Any existing structures, vegetation, and debris are removed from the site. This can involve demolishing old buildings, clearing trees, and removing other obstructions.


Earthmoving machinery, such as excavators, bulldozers, and graders, is used to excavate and shape the site according to the planned design. The soil, rocks, and other materials are either removed from the site or redistributed to create desired elevations and contours.


If the project involves laying utilities (such as water, sewer, or electrical lines), trenches are dug to accommodate them.

Shoring and Erosion Control

To prevent soil collapse during excavation and protect against erosion, shoring techniques may be employed. This involves supporting the walls of excavated areas to ensure stability.


Grading is the process of leveling the ground to the required elevation. This step is crucial for ensuring proper drainage and stability.

Utilities Installation

Once the site is excavated and graded, underground utilities like water lines, sewer lines, gas lines, and electrical conduits are installed.
