A Step by Step Guide to Site Preparation

Before any building project can take place the building site needs to be prepared. There are steps involved that must take place in order to fulfil a successful project. The lot needs to be carefully selected after a site assessment has been done and then the site preparation can begin.

Everything there is to know about sand

You may only think of sand when you’re at the beach and it is beneath your feet or when it gets stuck in your bathing suit after a dip in the sea. However, sand has been here longer than we have and will be here long after we are gone. Humankind has always made effective use of this abundant resource – especially when building our cities, homes and societies.

When site clearance is the best option

 

The proper clearance of rubble is a public responsibility. Dumping is illegal and rubble and refuse need to be disposed of conscientiously. This is for the sake of the environment and the reputation of the industries that produce rubble. Certain building materials can be reused which should not become a missed opportunity. Hazardous waste should be disposed of properly so it does not end up harming the local people in the area or its fauna and flora.
