Our Proven Process

Site Preparation

Before the excavation process starts, we assess the site and plan the best approach for safety and efficiency. Evaluation of soil type and condition is carried out on the site. Water table levels are assessed, underground services are identified and located.
Potential hazards are risk assessed. We obtain the necessary permissions from local authorities.

Excavation Process

Once the site is prepared, we will begin the excavation process using specialised equipment. We will carefully remove soil and rock layer by layer, ensuring proper stability and safety measures are in place.

Shoring and Retaining Walls

Stability of excavations, especially when they are deep, is critical to safety and workflow. We provide comprehensive support systems, including retaining walls and supported excavation, to ensure stability and safety. If necessary, we will install bespoke temporary or permanent shoring systems and retaining walls to prevent soil collapse or lateral movement.


When excavating at significant depths, water seepage can be an issue. Water levels are managed to maintain a safe and dry work environment. Wellpoint systems, sump pumps, or other dewatering methods are used to remove excess water from the excavation site.

Excavated Material Management

We will coordinate with waste management services to dispose of or repurpose excess soil and rock responsibly.

Safety and Quality Assurance

RC Civils prioritises safety at all stages of the project as a responsible groundworks contractor in Cumbria. From ensuring that the excavation site is secure to checking that all safety measures are implemented. We conduct quality checks to confirm that our excavation work meets your specifications and standards.

Once the excavation work is completed, we will oversee site cleanup and restoration. We will remove equipment and restore the site to its original condition. We are skilled at coordinating with other service providers to seamlessly transition to the next phase of your project.
