With Australia's ever evolving infrastructure and housing developments, the excavation and earthworks business continues to grow at a rapid rate.
Excavation may involve land clearing, removal of excess soil, land leveling or simple ditch work. But it can also be much more complex than simply removing dirt and stone to leave a hole. There are many aspects that require specialized skills and a great deal of care. Any contractor or homeowner that has watched a skilled excavator work his magic, artfully forming a hole for a foundation or in-ground tank, can attest to this. Additionally, these operators often have to excavate in close proximity to buried electrical, telephone or other services.
Some level of excavation will normally be a prerequisite to any construction project. And because it often requires specialized heavy equipment that only a professional excavator is likely to have, this has become a niche with a great deal of available work.
