of excavated spoil is an expensive business.
The generation of material created by site strip, foundation dig &
alteration to the existing ground levels in order to achieve the desired
landscape features can mean that vast quantities of spoil have to be relocated
on site or taken off site for disposal.
The cost of disposal can be minimised by the use of excavated material
within the development design.
The ground levels identified by the survey can be used to create a three
dimensional model of the ground. Similarly proposed design levels can
be used to create a second model. Subtracting the shape of the design
from the original identifies the volume of earth between. This is the
quantity that needs to be accounted for.
Knowing the volume of spoil means that costs can be identified at the
estimating stage & upon commencement of works ensures that the contractor
is paid for the correct quantity either for on site relocation or “cart
If you have an area of land which is required to be filled
with non-hazardous spoil please ring to discuss a design which will result
in a ground shape complimentary to the surrounding landscape yet maximising
