Land clearing involves the removal of trees, shrubs, and debris from a designated area to prepare it for construction or agricultural use. This process can also include the leveling of the land and removal of roots or stumps.

Demolition is the process of tearing down buildings and other structures using methods such as wrecking balls, explosives, or dismantling. It is often done to clear space for new construction or to remove unsafe structures.

Concrete work includes several specialized tasks such as creating curbs, sidewalks, and foundations. Curbing forms the boundaries of roads or parking lots, sidewalks provide pedestrian pathways, and footers or foundations are essential for structural stability in buildings.

The design/build approach integrates design and construction phases under one contract, offering clients a unified workflow from concept to completion. This method can streamline project timelines and reduce costs.

This involves strategies to prevent soil erosion and manage sediment in construction sites, promoting water quality and site stability. Techniques include the use of silt fences, erosion control blankets, and sediment traps.

Storm water management includes planning and constructing systems like drainage systems, underground retention facilities, bio-retention ponds, and swales to control and purify runoff water, reducing the impact on local waterways.

Detention basins are engineered to capture and store stormwater runoff, releasing it slowly back into the environment to prevent flooding and erosion in downstream waterways.

Earth work comprises excavating, moving, and grading soil to form the desired topography for construction projects. This fundamental task ensures proper drainage and structural foundation.

Installation and maintenance of essential services such as water, sewer, electric, and gas utilities are crucial for residential and commercial areas, involving extensive below-ground infrastructure work.

Underground piercing or trenchless boring is a non-invasive method used to install underground utilities without the need for extensive excavation, minimizing surface disruption and environmental impact.

Construction of roads, driveways, and parking lots involves different materials and designs, including both pervious (water-permeable) and non-pervious (water-impermeable) surfaces to suit environmental and usage requirements.

Concrete wall construction can include free-standing structures for enclosures and boundaries or retaining walls designed to hold back soil in elevated terrains.

Pond construction can serve various purposes such as aesthetic enhancements, stormwater management, and irrigation. This involves site selection, excavation, and often, the installation of synthetic liners.

Pump stations are critical in water and sewer systems to transport wastewater from lower to higher elevations, especially in areas without natural downward gradients.

Developing sports complexes includes building facilities like baseball/softball fields, basketball courts, soccer fields, and tennis courts, catering to community recreation needs with appropriate surfacing and equipment.

Box culverts, typically made from pre-cast concrete or constructed as pipe culverts, are used in road construction to allow water to flow under a road, railway, or similar barriers.

Stream bank stabilization projects protect river and stream banks from erosion using techniques like vegetative planting, rock installations, or engineered structures to preserve the natural landscape and aquatic habitats.

Septic lagoons are engineered pond-like basins used in wastewater treatment, where sewage is broken down through natural processes before being safely reintegrated into the environment.

Irrigation fields are specifically designed areas where wastewater is distributed and filtered through the soil, used primarily in agricultural and landscaping applications to reuse water efficiently.

Wetland mitigation involves the restoration, creation, or enhancement of wetlands to compensate for authorized impacts to wetlands at another location, ensuring no net loss of wetland functions and values.

These projects focus on environmental improvements in agricultural settings, such as managing livestock waste and optimizing feedlot drainage to minimize water pollution and enhance sustainability.

This involves the installation of underground piping systems for geothermal heating and cooling solutions, leveraging the constant temperature of the earth to regulate building climates efficiently.

Landscaping services encompass rock raking, seeding, and planting to enhance the visual appeal and functionality of an area, supporting biodiversity and improving environmental quality.
