Mass Dirt Excavation including Clearing, Demolition, Soil Amendement & Erosion Controls
Pre-construction and Value Engineering
Understanding & planning your Project
Pre-construction is the due diligence behind any construction project. As such, it is an integral part of the construction process to determine the scope of work, budget, materials, and much more.
By conducting careful preparatory work during our discovery process, we will identify complex issues, evaluate cost impacts, predict potential impediments, and provide value engineering solutions. We then customize your plan with your objectives in mind while establishing expectations to ensure the project’s success.
Clearing & Grubbing
Vegetation and rubbish removal
We eliminate the project area's trees, bushes, stumps, and debris during the clearing stage with specialized equipment. With proper site clearing, our site development projects begin on the right foot.
Our grubbing crew is in-house and operates the most reliable equipment available in our trade. We ensure our construction equipment is in top working condition to achieve exceptional speed without sacrificing overall production or safety at the worksite.
demolition & Razing
safe and efficient teardown
Most of our projects in our service area principally consist of generating virgin land into new construction. Nonetheless, infrequently there is a requirement to remove older structures and buildings.
Our experienced demo crew uses its vast experience to conduct safe and effective demolition while adhering to the stringent EPA specifications concerning hazardous materials. When feasible, we recycle elements such as metal debris or repurpose components for ensuing use in the project.
earthwork & grading
creating the foundation
Grading is the work of ensuring a level or smoothly sloped base to create a structure's foundation, a road's base, surface drainage, or the like. Our team of construction industry veterans specializing in earthwork and grading utilizes state-of-the-art technology to provide earthwork and grading services.
Collins Contracting performs all scopes of earthwork, including removal of structures and obstructions, soil excavation, preparation of foundations for embankment, disposal of excavated material, preparation of subgrade, subbase, and temporary water pollution, and soil erosion.
Sanitary Sewer, Waterline, & Stormwater Management Systems
Connecting Properties to The World
Utility infrastructure installation is the pipes, cables, wires, sewers, drains, plants, and equipment, providing utility service to properties. Water and sewer line installation is an example of this.Collins Contracting has the technical understanding and expertise to manage and construct a wide variety of utility projects.
We have comprehensive familiarity with water line installations, transmission mains, fire systems, hot and chilled water systems, storm sewer systems, street signals and lighting, and sewer lift and pump stations. This experience affords our customers with cost-effective and high-quality utility infrastructure work.
reduce runoff & improve water quality
We base our stormwater management objectives and regulations on reducing runoff volume and improving runoff water quality. Our crews focus on adhering to local public works municipalities' regulations using modern, proven techniques.
In addition to conventional procedures, development projects have included gully stabilization, floodplain rehabilitation, and other environmentally sensitive strategies. Furthermore, we use various methods such as volume containment, infiltration systems, basin retrofits, as well as supplementary erosion and deposit control systems.
Stone Placement, Curb and Gutter, Paving, & Full Depth Reclamation (FDR)
SOIL STABILIZATION AND PAVEMENT RECLAMATION
preparing the earth for construction
Before road development begins, we first prepare the terrain that will be the base layer for the pavement. We do this with soil stabilization and pavement reclamation. In this process, we are renewing the underlying materials into a uniform stabilized core foundation.
Additionally, we improve soil composition to meet the needs of our project. These enhancements include, but are not limited to, weight-bearing capabilities, tensile strength, and overall performance to strengthen road pavings.
PAVING, ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE, & CONCRETE INSTALLATION
creating the right paths
Collins Contracting affords a broad spectrum of concrete installation services executed by our skilled workforce and managed by our project development team to keep the larger site project on schedule. Our experienced workforce utilizes multiple paving applications, such as road construction and installing a wide array of cast-in-place products.
We use advanced 3D machine modeling technology to produce precise plans, empowering us to control our paving projects with the highest level of execution and precision. We also sustain professional ties with regional quarries, securing seamless product acquisition.
