Dunelm also have extensive experience of excavating by hand adjacent to existing buildings in order to provide information on the foundations. It is often necessary to commence these excavations using hydraulic power tools in order to penetrate concrete or tarmac. Diesel-engined hydraulic packs can be supplied for sites where petrol-engined plant is not safe.
Dunelm crews are able to provide a full reinstatement service of the ground surface on completion, even where this comprises block paving or tarmac.
Dunelm have also carried out larger scale excavations inside buildings to investigate column bases using micro-diggers and hydraulic tools. Re-bar surveys can also be arranged to provide further information on the structure of the building.
