Merolli Concrete is the industry expert to call for both residential excavation and commercial excavation services in Melbourne.
Before you embark on any kind of residential or commercial project, you’re most likely going to need some high-quality excavation work. There is often a large amount of soil to be removed and placed elsewhere, and the soil needs to be perfectly level and firm to build on. If you encounter a rock or hard surface, you may also need drilling services or specialised components to break it up.
Excavation work is often the first step after the designing and blueprinting stage of any new development, but it’s easy to overlook this vital component of a new project. Over excavating of a site happens often because levels are not taken correctly. The calculations are misinterpreted and hence over excavation happens. This is not an ideal situation to be in and can cost you a lot of money to correct. Remember that a structure must be built on firm ground, not loose earth, so be very careful with who you choose to do your excavation.

Moreover, when you work with our experienced excavation contractors in Melbourne, you can be assured that you get the right type of excavation work at the right depth.
Some terrain can be difficult to work on, and you may also benefit from contractors who offer a host of associated services. It’s often more affordable to work with an excavation specialist that also offers concrete construction services. They’ll understand what’s needed for the next phase of the project and be able to ensure a seamless process from start to finish.

How Do I Know if I Need Excavation Work?
A vast majority of construction and renovation projects can require excavation work. For building an extension, renovating a driveway, building a pool, building a house or constructing a basement, you are going to need excavation work.
A more relevant question is what level of excavation work you need. There’s a lot more excavation work involved in constructing a new basement as opposed to adding a small extension, for example. Merolli Concrete can carry out any type of house, driveway or basement excavation in Melbourne to fulfil your needs.
What Factors Affect the Cost of Excavation Work?
The cost of excavation work will be affected by the total surface area and depth, but these are only the two first steps. The total cost will also depend on the type of equipment needed, any necessary specialised attachments, the total time taken, the slope of the land and the accessibility of the area. Your location will also be a factor, as different states can have different rates.
How Long Does Excavation Work Take?
There is no set time, and it all depends on your unique project. A larger surface area with a greater depth is going to take longer, even with a more powerful machine. If there are rocks or other kinds of materials to be broken up and removed, it’s also going to take longer.
Site access might also be an issue, but once the machines are on site, there won’t be any further barriers in this regard. If you have a deadline to meet or you want to get the project moving along, you can talk to the contractor, and they should be able to help out with more people or machines to expedite things. One other factor can be the weather. If conditions are wet, then excavation will take longer to complete. It is important to note that we keep a close eye on the weather forecast in the days before and during excavation. Sometimes, it may start to rain unexpectedly. Knowing what to do and how to counteract wet weather is crucial.
