What Influences the Choice of Excavation Equipment for a Civil Construction Job?
Usually performed as a part of earthmoving operations, excavation is one of the numerous equipment-driven activities associated with heavy civil works such as dams, bridges, and highways. It involves using heavy construction equipment to remove soil that is considered to be unsuitable for the construction of a proposed structure. The excavated material can either be transported to a different location or kept onsite to serve other purposes. Depending on the purpose of the work, different types of heavy equipment may be used during excavation.
