What is Civil Construction?
Civil construction is a branch of civil engineering involving the maintenance, design, and construction of built environments, both natural and physical. This includes roads, buildings, tunnels, dams, and more. Civil construction is all around us and is responsible for most construction we see in our daily lives that isn’t privately owned.
In terms of civil construction, WRS is equipped to handle it all. Our services include:
Our Civil Construction Services
Our services start at the very beginning of a project’s life cycle with site setup. At WRS we know that poor planning means poor performance, which is why we take site setup very seriously. In the setup phase, we make sure everything is prepared before construction even begins. Our goal is to maximize efficiency, keep everyone safe, and make sure all the legal requirements are met, so that you don’t have to worry about anything. We also survey the land using state-of-the-art GPS and radar technology so we can identify potential issues before construction begins. We call this constructability and it is a key reason our customers count on us to get the job done right and on time.
Land clearing is a service that, when done properly, allows for the best results in any construction project. This includes removing debris, unwanted machinery or buildings, and uprooting vegetation. This is always done in a way that minimizes environmental impact.
The environmental impact of construction projects is always of great importance to us. One way we can protect the environment is through our erosion control services. Erosion control protects nearby bodies of water and the ecosystem within. Dangerous and loose sediments created during the construction process are prevented from entering these bodies of water. You’ll have peace of mind knowing the environment around your project is protected.
WRS also offers fine grading for any construction project. In this process, our team uses specialized equipment equipped with sophisticated GPS guidance. We can create a level base in even the most challenging of situations, with absolute precision.
We also offer mass grading for large-scale projects. Our team and earthmoving equipment can alter elevations and slopes to prepare your project site for construction. We are prepared to handle any size project regardless of the complexity of the situation.
The ability to handle any sized project includes utility installation. As a self-contained and multidisciplinary team, we save you the trouble of needing to hire another contractor for in-ground utility installation. This includes storm-water piping, sanitary sewer piping, water piping, gas and electrical, and everything in between. A properly installed sanitary sewer pipe requires a minimum exfiltration and infiltration amount, storm-water pipes need to be certain grades, and water pipes may need to be safe for drinking. WRS has the experience to handle all of these requirements no matter the size or location of your project.
Concrete Foundations and Flatwork
WRS also offers concrete foundations, concrete and asphalt paving, and flatwork. So, whether you need a parking lot paved, a road constructed, or more specialized flatwork, we have options to fit your specific needs. If you want to learn more about our pavement options you can visit our page on asphalt paving or our page on concrete construction.
Careful consideration of each detail of the construction process is why WRS has gained the trust of our community. We know having a single point of contact for all your civil construction needs saves time, money, and headaches. We look forward to working with you on your next residential, commercial, municipal, or industrial project.
