Site Development | Earthwork

Ryangolf’s reputation in performance and production as an earthwork contractor stands out to clients. The company simply expects its employees to perform smarter, better and faster than the competition especially when it comes to its earthwork operations. Clients know there is no learning curve or on-site training with Ryangolf Corporation.  The crews are professional and strive to accomplish daily goals in record time, while still considering the timelines and goals set for the project.

Ryangolf’s heritage comes from a long family in earthmoving operations.  The company has nationwide experience in the various geographical site conditions that may be encountered during the excavation phase, which is crucial to the success of a project. Examples include hard limerock, coral, cap rock, clays, silts, hardpan and excessive groundwater intrusion, all of which are not evident from an inspection on the surface. For these reasons, Ryangolf prefers to conduct its own investigations by performing test pit operations on a site prior to bidding and construction; so that these soil conditions may be identified and addressed before excavating the first cubic yard of material.

Mass earthwork operations can begin once the erosion control is in place and the site has been cleared.  A fleet of large excavators, off-road trucks, bulldozers, earthmoving pans, motorgraders and compactors are brought onto the site to complete this task depending on location and soil conditions.


Often, excessive ground water infiltration must be mitigated with a dewatering operation that lowers the ground water down to a workable elevation in the excavation.  This is typically accomplished using large hydraulic pumps that remove the water from the pit and place it in a temporary holding area constructed on-site.

These operations are consistently monitored by a geotechnical engineer in order to certify that the earthwork conforms to the project specifications.  These specifications often include aggregate size in specific fills and compaction requirements.
