An important step in the pre-construction phase of commercial construction is site evaluation, which ensures that the building site is a suitable location for the project. Preliminary evaluation includes site investigation and site grading analysis. OnSite Resources readily provides both of these services for construction sites in Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Knightdale and surrounding areas in the Triangle.
Commercial Construction Site Investigation in Raleigh
Site investigation is necessary to make sure that Raleigh commercial sites are safe and free of contaminants. When we perform site investigations, we collect data for the purpose of risk assessment, and we also analyze samples of soil, groundwater, surface water and sediments.
Onsite Resources’ site investigation process involves several steps:
- Ensure that the site is safe
- Determine groundwater quality and begin monitoring if needed
- Characterize the site’s checkpoints and compare values to regulatory management values (ex. drinking water, food)
- Develop a management strategy for the site. This can simply be a monitoring strategy, constraints, or site remediation.
Site Grading Analysis
Before your commercial construction project can begin, your builders must understand the grade of your site, including any grading hazards the site may pose.
Sites for commercial construction often have uncertainties in surface and subsurface conditions and involve technical challenges in satisfying grading requirements. For this reason, it is important to identify and resolve any issues before beginning a commercial project in Raleigh.
