How to prepare your site for easy installation of the building?
Site preparation is an essential activity before any building project can be done. An unfriendly site can destroy plans and the overall project.
Site preparation may consist of clearing the site from any unwanted materials such as trees, roots, debris and other obstacles and performing necessary rough grading. It is suggested that site preparation be done at least a week prior to installation. Also, part of the preparation is site surveying and securing building permits that are required in the area.
It is important to take note that WCMBINC will not be responsible for any site preparation. This is the sole responsibility of the client.
Before preparing the site for installation, it is also important to check on the things that may affect or could be affected by the placement of the metal building or carport such as setbacks and easements, topography, views, driveway, exposure to the sun, and trees that you want to keep.
For an easy preparation of the site, you may follow the following steps:
- Remove all the vegetation and cut off or uproot trees totally.
- All underground lines for anchoring must have bench marks for easy recognition. Lay out properly the orientation and trench lines of the building.
- Set up the location for the storage and stacking of the materials.
- Fix the boundary line markers.
- Square and level off the land. Holes must be filled with sands or rammed earth.
- There must be a minimum of 2 feet workspace around the structure.
- Power lines should be fully shut off. Overhead powerlines should be 10 feet minimum.
