A to Z Demolition provides more than just demolitions. We are also experts in excavation and site preparation services in Sydney.

Excavation can be necessary for many different reasons. One of the most common reasons is to make a cavity in which septic tanks can be placed. Other common reasons may be things like creating a basement, cellar, or simply just terrain levelling.

Whatever the reason you need us, you will find A to Z Demolition is among the most affordable and efficient excavation contractors in Sydney. Our excavation crew can work closely with your site engineers and surveyors to ensure precision excavation that is flawlessly executed. We will also, unless directed otherwise, remove excavated earth from the site.

Why Choose A to Z Demolition for Excavation and Site Preparation

You will find many excavation companies in Sydney, but few that will come close to the level of professionalism you can expect from A to Z Demolition. So if you need some excavation work done, talk to us first. A to Z Demolition is always your best choice for excavations.

Now let’s talk some more about our site preparation services. As the name suggests, site preparation involves making a site ready for construction. The process will vary according to the needs of each individual site, but some of the tasks that could be required for site preparation include:

  • Demolition and removal of existing structures
  • Optional salvaging of materials from existing structures
  • Tree removal and stump removal
  • Removal of large rocks, concrete slabs, etc.
  • Removal of rubbish and debris
  • Site levelling and terraforming
  • Landscaping – for example, the creation of paths, embankments, ponds, and other landscape features that are not naturally occurring.
  • Excavation

Some sites may also require additional preparatory services, and we can provide all the assistance and advice you require.

When you work with A to Z Demolition, you can be sure of total professionalism on every job, because we are professionals in every sense.

Demolitions and deconstruction

Clearing away existing structures from a site can be important for many reasons. The most common reason is that the building is either unsafe or in such poor condition that renovating it would be a waste of resources. Another common reason is that a planned new commercial building will occupy the space.

It can be possible during this phase, if desired, to salvage materials from the existing structure. These can be re-used, recycled, or sold. Even old bricks can have some value, so you’d be surprised how much can be salvaged from some sites.

Tree and stump removal

Trees are really nice things to have, but sometimes they happen to be in the wrong place. When that happens, it’s necessary to remove them. Proper tree and stump removal makes sure no traces of the tree are left behind.

That means not just clearing the tree from the surface, but also digging below the surface, where practical, to remove the roots. If this is not done, the tree roots can create problems for you later.

Removal of rocks and other large objects

Large rocks, unwanted slabs of concrete, buried rebar sections, and other large heavy objects can be a problem on construction sites. They need to be cleared away so they don’t create a hazard and also don’t interfere with any digging activities your crew undertakes.

This should be done not only for surface objects, but also subsurface objects if they are likely to cause a problem to your project. Subsurface boulders and large objects can be detected using radar and other scientific tools.

Removal of rubbish and debris

Your site shouldn’t look like a garbage dump, and it doesn’t have to. We can remove unsightly trash and debris from your building site, which will make the area safer and more pleasant to work in.

Site levelling and terraforming

Using heavy machinery and engineering equipment, we can quickly level a site so it is ready for building upon (this will require a site survey). Terraforming is a related but different process. Terraforming involves building up areas of earth to shape it for some specific purpose (for example, golf courses).


A step up from simple terraforming, landscaping involves shaping an area of land to fit a design. This can involve subtracting parts of the landscape in some sections, and adding to it in other sections. Digging out dams and ponds is one example. Another example would be building a bridge across a pond, creating a path to the bridge, putting lamp posts along the path, and so on.


This is the most basic level of site preparation, and simply involves digging into the earth any place that you need earth to be removed. The most usual method for excavation is to use a machine which is – conveniently enough – called an excavator. There are other ways to perform excavations as well, but you won’t normally need to use them.

We are one of the few companies providing excavations in Sydney that can use the alternative excavation methods if it should be the case that these methods do need to be employed on a particular site.
