Site Preparaton & Foundational Support
Commercial | Residential | Industrial | Agricultural | Municipal

The main purpose of site clearance is to remove existing buildings, waste, vegetation and, most importantly, the surface layer of soil referred to as topsoil. It is necessary to remove this layer of soil, as it is unsuitable to build on. Site preparation may involve the demolition or wrecking of buildings and other structures, clearing of building sites and materials from demolished structures. Site preparation also can also entail test drilling, levelling, earth-moving, excavating, land drainage and other land preparation.

Once site clearance and prep is done it’s time for a foundation. This often includes the setting out of building foundation trenches. This is the process of laying down the excavation line and centerline on the ground based on the foundation plan. The setting out process is performed before commencing the excavation process. At Helton Backhoe Service, we have been doing site clearing and foundation trenching for over 22 years right here in Summit County, Colorado. We take pride in our honesty & integrity.
