Contract costs run usually between $85 -$120/hr for truck time. So its just matter or calculating the round journey time and multiply by truck cubic meter caring capacity.

Questions and Answers

What is Grading and Excavation?

Posted by Ben D
[display_name id=”1″]Hi:
Excavation is removing heavy rock and actually moving the earth in an area. Grading is taking a bob cat or some other piece of equipment and leveling out the ground. Excavation is done on major construction sites and when clearing land for building residential homes. Grading is done on both of these type jobs but also is used in landscaping. Many new construction home and commercial companies have landscapers come in and level the property so plants can be installed along with any other outdoor features. In a smaller grading job, I have used a tiller to level out the future landscaped area. I hope this has helped some and anwsered your questions. Take a look at my website for other ideas in any landscape solutions.
Archaeological excavation?If it’s a popular or historically significant sites, what ethical behaviors must an archaeologist follows? Obviously besides its significance. Thank you.

[display_name id=”1″]An archaeologist should always follow ethical behaviour, it doesn’t matter how significant the site is (and the real significance of a site is usually not obvious until several seasons of excavation and a thorough analysis).The legal requirements can vary a bit from country to country, but that’s a bit different from ethics; here’s the Wikipedia list of basic ethics that are generally accepted among archaeologists.Http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archaeologi…It’s pretty basic, but has links at the bottom of the page to more detailed sites. If one wants to be a member of a professional body of archaeologists (such as the Institute for Field Archaeology in the UK) then one has to agree to follow their code of ethics.One of the first ethical dilemmas is whether to excavate at all; once a site is excavated it is destroyed, so often non-invasive techniques are preferred. The other obvious ones are regarding antiquities and human remains. I would also add that detailed and concise recording and eventual publication should also be an ethical concern. When we excavate, we destroy, so it is our responsibility to be able to present what we found so that other scholars and the public can use that information. There are too many excavations that remain unpublished, so only the excavator has any knowledge of the site.
What is braced excavation used for?

Posted by mtnglo
[display_name id=”1″]Excavations are braced to prevent the cave-in of surrounding unstable soil.
A braced excavation is constructed in saturated ground. The excavation is dewatered during construction
and is supported by diaphragm walls that are braced at the top by horizontal struts. The
purpose of the FLAC analysis is to evaluate the deformation of the ground adjacent to the excavation
and the performance of the wall and struts, throughout the construction stages. The analysis
starts from the stage after the wall has been constructed, but prior to any excavation. Dewatering,
excavation and installation of struts are simulated in separate construction stages. A calculation of
the factor of safety of the excavation is made after the final stage.
