The value of earthworks forms a significant part of any construction work so it is imperative to have accurate costings before and during the construction process.
By comparing design information to existing and proposed land formations, earthwork calculations can be worked out to enable accurate costings to be made.
At this stage of work, allowances can be made in the final design to make the most of any cut/fill imbalance. In most cases, this information is presented as a written report and supported by a detailed drawing showing isopachyte contours.
On a much simpler scale, volume surveys can be carried out on stockpiles, open excavations and backfilled areas to give quantities of cut or fill, or carried out as a monitoring exercise to show deformation.
