Grading is the process of ensuring a level base, or one with a specified slope, for a construction project. The professionals at Bedrock can assist you with grading and drainage plans. We perform grading for a variety of projects, including:
  • Commercial & Multi-Family Residential Parking Lot Design
  • Storm Drain Basin Design
  • Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP)

Used in both civil engineering projects and landscape architectural construction, grading may be necessary before projects such as installing a foundation, the base course for a road or a railway, landscape and garden improvements, or surface drainage. The earthworks created for such a purpose are often called the sub-grade.

Grading Plan shows the current contours and how the shape of a project or property will change. A Grading Plan can be performed for a single lot or on a larger tract of land. A grading plan is a complex set of drawings which may include retaining walls and drainage systems.  Different cities have their own set of rules which trigger the need for a Grading Plan, but in general a land development Grading Plan will be required if you are moving more than 50 cubic yards of earth or changing the elevation more than a foot.
