House and shed pads
We design and construct house and shed pads of all sizes.
Your house pad or shed pad will be expertly levelled to give your structure a strong, durable, reliable foundation.
Main problems with site levelling
While site levelling may seem like a simple job, there are a few common mistakes made by inexperienced - or lazy - earthmovers:
- Lack of knowledge about local soils
- Fill dirt not compacted well Not enough backfill
- Inadequate compacting that cause uneven settling (and structural damage Poor drainage
Bad pad and site preparation can cost you thousands of dollars. What’s more, it can lead to erosion, flooding, and damage to your property.
How we ensure a strong foundation
Pads are built with enough space for the structure and for builders to work.
A house or shed pad that hasn’t been properly compacted will cause the structures to settle. Uneven settling can lead to structural damage in the building. Bad compacting can also cause problems with underground pipes and other equipment.
All of this is expensive and hard to fix.
Our skilled operators will use powerful compacting equipment to build a quality foundation for your structure.
Clear construction area
We make sure your construction area is free from all obstructions before we begin building the pad. This ensures you have the strongest foundation possible for building.
Tree stumps, clearing piles, major roots, existing buildings, pipes, and other obstructions should never be buried under pads.
Good drainage and erosion control
We design and build house and shed pads to handle erosion from the weather - and in the case of a farm, we ensure the pads are can handle heavy equipment travel.
Our graders will assess the slope of your site and manipulate the grade to make sure water flows away from your property - rather than towards it. Drainage is important to avoid erosion.
Specialised in the digging of footings
Our operators have an eye for technical details. It’s how we consistently drill accurate post stump / pier holes - essential for a strong foundation for every home or shed.
We’ll ensure every house or shed pad gets plenty of backfill to accommodate the size of the buildings.
Our earthmoving equipment includes a 3 tonne and 5 tonne excavator, and bobcats with a range of attachments.
Tight access mini-diggers
We have access to tight access excavation equipment. Importantly, our operators are specialised in using this equipment.
