Prepare for Construction With Land Clearing

Before any heavy machinery ever touches dirt, your project begins with an evaluation of your project’s design and its proposed site by our skilled engineers. Our excavation team will assess the property and analyze all critical factors, such as:

  • Slope
  • Soil stability and erosion
  • Stormwater and watershed drainage
  • Potential impact from adjacent properties

This preliminary work is vital for keeping your property’s foundation safe and dry. This can be especially critical for homes in areas on Maui that receive significant rainfall or are sited on steep lots. Unfortunately, many property owners have been faced with expensive repairs and heartache that can result from a haphazardly done excavation job.

Your new construction should exist in harmony with the beautiful Maui landscape. Our site preparation clears only as much as necessary, creating a usable space for construction while leaving native foliage intact wherever we can.


We provide demolition services for a complete rebuild or to prepare your home for renovation. We safely prepare the area for construction, removing only as much as necessary while keeping the natural landscape in mind. Our controlled demolition clears the space with minimal effect on the surrounding area. 


Solid construction begins with grading. Uneven ground can cause pools of water to form, causing structural damage and other serious problems.

Site grading levels and shapes your property to ensure a strong foundation for your home. Maui has unique terrain, and our team has the equipment and industry experience to work with the specific conditions of your property.

Trenching for Underground Utilities

New construction requires a safe way to install underground utilities. We begin our trenching process by examining the soil makeup on your property. Understanding the soil classification of your property allows us to safely trench the area.

The types of utilities you want to install underground determine the size and positioning of the trench. Our team can provide you with a detailed plan for installing underground utilities including water lines and electrical conduits.
