Even before the early stages of site work, we work closely with architects, developers, engineers and owners providing assistance with design build and value engineering. These efforts are made because we know the importance of creating a budget and adhering to that budget as the project progresses.
Clearing, Grubbing and Stripping
Industrial, brush and rotary mowers, and heavy equipment are used to trim back or clear trees and brush from planned areas, preparing the site for construction. Unwanted topsoil and vegetation are then stripped and reused onsite or moved offsite. Throughout construction we avidly maintain and protect the site's remaining vegetation.
Prior to beginning site development, there are often above and underground structures left in the way of future development.
L.T. Hedrick Construction Company Inc. dismembers such structures with care to meet and exceed safety expectations during the demolition process. We can also provide LEED conforming sources for disposal of materials where available and within budget.
Erosion and Sediment Control
Install and maintain erosion control measures that meet or exceed NC DENR specifications throughout the duration of the project. This includes; construction entrances, silt fence, skimmer basins, temporary inlet and outlet protection, temporary matting and seeding, and all other types of erosion control which may be specified on any project. L.T. Hedrick Construction has maintained a great working relationship with the local NC DENR.
