Site Preparation Contractors

Site Preparation Contractors

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry prepare sites for building and perform tasks such as excavating, grading, demolition, and septic system installation. Major companies include Controlled Demolition (CDI), Manafort Brothers Incorporated, and Phillips & Jordan (P&J) (all based in the US), as well as Ground Construction (GCL), Keller, and Keltbray (all based in the UK).


Construction and demolition projects drive demand for site prep contractors. The profitability of individual companies depends on accurate bidding and optimal deployment of personnel and equipment. Large companies have advantages in handling multiple types of projects simultaneously. Small companies can compete effectively by subcontracting their services to larger firms, specializing by type of work, or becoming a preferred contractor for local builders and developers. Small companies often compete with solo owner-operators who hire temporary workers and rent equipment as needed.


The major services are construction of highways and streets (over 10% of revenue), non-residential buildings (about 15%), and residential buildings (about 10%). Other services include preparing for water, sewer, and pipeline construction, and support for oil, gas, and mining operations.
