One of the first steps toward new construction is clearing. This means removing trees and debris and developing topsoil. This is an area where E.R. Lewis Construction shines with our respect for the environment and eye toward reusable materials. Throughout our company's history, trees from cleared woodlands have been used in wood products such as lumber and paper. And, topsoil has been developed by composting leftover stumps and debris that is hauled to our landfill. Our clients can be sure that we approach clearing with care and consideration-it's just one of the ways in which we practice value-engineering.
The next step toward new construction and part of the process of clearing is demolition-the act of helping an outdated structure give way to a modern one. Again, E.R. Lewis Construction demolishes with care and consideration using dedicated dump trucks, excavators and crushers to work quickly, cleanly and safely. Our use of a concrete crusher allows us to recycle concrete for reuse. We also recycle on-site metal whenever possible allowing us to make the most of discarded materials. This not only helps the environment, it also saves money in the long run. Our clients can respect and appreciate our approach to demolition.
The heart of our company lies in earthwork services. Having our own State approved borrow sources and LCID Landfills, along with current GPS technology brings precision results to earthmoving jobs, again allowing us to operate with care and consideration for wasteful practices. We operate a fleet of high-tech earthmoving equipment capable of moving thousands of yards of ground in the most efficient, effective manner possible. This includes working with lakes and ponds, industrial sites, major highways, subdivisions, city streets, shopping centers, and spaces for underground utilities. These valuable earthwork services are available to our clients within a 60-mile radius of Greenville, North Carolina.
Clients can trust our erosion control team to make sure wind and water erosion is under control at every job site. Since effective erosion controls are important in preventing water pollution and soil loss, they are usually the first people on the site creating a physical barrier to erosion. Increased regulations and heightened environmental concerns make their installation of silt fencing, construction entrances, riprap check dams, erosion matting and temporary seeding a vital part of many projects.
