What Do You Need To Know About Site Clearance

Site Clearance Auckland


The Site on which the building is to be erected should be cleared once the design, contract, and mobilization have been finished. Clearance of the Site could entail removing waste, topsoil, trees, stumps, brooks, roots, wood, scrap, hummus, swamp material, and any other plant or anything unwanted.

Every item removed by clearing and grubbing operations helpful to the Employer shall be stored according to the Employer’s needs. Unwanted materials shall be removed from the Site and disposed of at areas after obtaining prior permission. The soil shall be cleared inside regions of excavation or filling by withdrawing from the topsoil (about 150 mm thick) from all living or dead trees, and the bottoms and root mats, not less than 0.3 meters under the surface or depth as the Engineer specifies.

All depressions under the ground surface by removing stumps and rootstocks shall, except the areas to be excavated, be refilled with suitable material and compacted to the Engineer’s satisfaction. Topsoil must be removed and stored at erosion-free places, mixed with other materials, or compacted by construction traffic.

Is Demolition Subject To Site Clearance?

Yes, it comes under this item if the old structures should be dismantled or relocated somewhere else. At the same time, the demolition or demolition payment is paid separately (in terms of the area or the BOQ) to the Contractor.

To carry out the demolition work, people must establish careful coordination with the other work carried out on the Site. The Contractor shall inspect the structure to be demolished before any demolition work begins and take all necessary efforts to guarantee that such parts are kept unchanged. The Contractor will remedy any damage to the retained parts at its expense. All waste, scrap, and other materials arising from the demolition shall be removed from the Site. The storage or sale of material removed from the Site is not permitted.

Who Owns The Valuable Items Obtained During The Removal?

Underground and overground structures with a recovery value are carefully removed and stored at places indicated by the Engineer. They are made the property of the Employer, except for reinstatement services. These buildings comprise bricks, wood, plastic, and metal (reinforcing bars).

What Is The Payment Method?

In terms of area, i.e., per meter square, payment for site clearance is made.

If the number of chopped trees is more, payment is made per number, i.e., by tree number. Dismantling or demolition units are per square meter.
