Excavating and Grading
When it comes to earthmoving and preparing a site for construction, Grade Tech can handle the largest grading projects under the tightest deadlines. We understand how to get the job done…and get it done right. We combine the latest equipment and techniques with our practical experience. Our late model fleet includes excavators, rock slingers, scrapers, loaders, graders, dozers, rollers and compactors run by experienced operators.
As power consumption continues to grow, the need for new substations, expansion of existing substations and the demolition of outdated/unused substations grows as well. From excavation and backfill to road finishes, yard finishes, access roads and drainage ditches, our team is experienced in all of the civil work involved in the building, expansion and demo of power substations. We can do it all…and do it safely.

In addition to the actual excavating and grading work, we offer civil engineering services to support heavy civil construction projects. These services assist project managers with planning the project in order to ensure efficiency and save money.
Our internal survey department performs surveying and layout work at the project site. We can also assist with preliminary design and quantities. Finally, we can provide a cost analysis and budgetary numbers upfront so that the project manager has the full picture prior to commencing the project.
