MEASURING EARTHWORK
GENERAL Division 2, site work, of the Uniform Construction Index (CSI format) includes a wide variety of subject areas. The following major areas of division 2 will be covered in this handout: sitework, building excavation, backfilling, and related earthwork activities. Financially, earthwork is one of the most risky phases in the construction of a project because of the multitude of unknowns. Weather and subsurface conditions such as rock, underground water, and soil type add to the uncertainties. These variables not only affect labor productivity but also equipment selection and production. Excavation can be by hand or by the use of large tractors, scrapers, or draglines. Measuring sitework and excavation work is different from measuring most other work of a construction project because tender drawings usually provide very little detail about the specific requirements of sitework operations. The drawings will give details of the new construction required for the project, but information about what is currently to be found at the site of the proposed work may not be provided. Furthermore, the size and depth of foundations may be defined in detail on the drawings, but there is typically nothing disclosed about the dimensions and shape of the excavations required to accommodate these constructions. The exact amount of excavation is sometimes difficult to determine because of the varying field conditions. The materials purchased for the project (sand and gravel) are also difficult to determine because of variations in moisture content, material consistency, and waste factors.

MEASURING EARTHWORK
The quantity takeoff of excavation is in cubic feet and converted to cubic yards. The estimator needs to establish if bank yards or swelled yards are being used in the calculations. A bankyard is the measurement of the soil, as it lies undisturbed in the ground. When the soil is excavated it will expand and assume a larger volume. This expansion is called the swell factor. It is measured as a percentage increase above the undisturbed volume. Once excavated soil is placed and compacted on the project, it will be compressed into a smaller volume. The degree of compaction and the type of soil will affect the amount of shrinkage. The estimator needs to compensate for swell and shrinkage when hauling earth off the site or bringing additional material and compacting it on the site. The swell and shrinkage factors vary greatly depending on the type of material. The estimator should refer to the soils report to determine the exact swell and/or shrinkage 1 of 25

factors for each specific project. Fine and coarse aggregates are taken off in cubic feet and then converted to tons.

Sitework Takeoff Most construction projects require the movement of earthwork on site. This will result in altering the existing elevation to a different or finish elevation. To determine the amount of soil to be moved, the estimator needs to have a plot plan or topographic survey. This drawing is developed by plotting the readings (elevations) obtained from a topographic field survey usually performed by a licensed land surveyor. The different contour lines represent changes in elevation. The dashed lines usually indicate existing elevations; the solid lines represent proposed or finish elevations.

The next step is to determine how the sections will be cut. the estimator can determine how much land needs to be cleared. or stations. cutting a series of sections at each 50-ft N-S grid line will result in six cross-sections. DOCUZIP CENTER Before the excavations can begin the site will have to be cleared of unwanted trees and underbrush. It is usually less cumbersome in developing the necessary calculations to select the shortest overall dimension. and the grid method is usually used for building construction.: 4300-471 Topic: MEASURING EARTHWORK File # 222. AREA AVERAGE END METHOD The first method in the area average end method is to divide the plot plan into a series of grids. The area average end method is normally used for heavy and highway work.Course Title: “Construction Administration” Course NO. The existing and finish elevations are noted at the intersection of grid lines. Two methods are used to calculate the quantity of earth to be moved on a site. The estimator can select a north-south or east-west direction. It will be necessary for the estimator to visit the site to determine the extent of clearing and grubbing. By visiting the site and using the drawings. Any interval can be used for this. In the figure shown below.

Course Title: “Construction Administration” Course NO. The following relationship can be used to calculate this volume: V12 = A1 + A2 × Perpendicular distance between stations 2 4 of 25 .: 4300-471 Topic: MEASURING EARTHWORK File # 222. the next step is to find the volume of earth to be moved between any two adjacent stations. determining the area in square inches. and converting it to square feet using the designated scales. the estimator plots a cross-section at each station and calculates the respective areas. DOCUZIP CENTER Using the existing and final elevations. Finding the areas may be a simple task of dividing the total cross-section into a series of simple figures to remove the need to use trigonometry or calculus. The “planimeter” can also be used to determine the area from the scaled drawing. Once all areas have been determined. Other methods. can also be used. such as plotting each cross-section to scale.

Course Title: “Construction Administration” Course NO. 5 of 25 .: 4300-471 Topic: MEASURING EARTHWORK File # 222. The volumes are then summed to obtain the total volume to be moved. DOCUZIP CENTER This process is repeated for each set of cross-sections.

: 4300-471 Topic: MEASURING EARTHWORK File # 222. The first step in this method is to draw grid lines on the site plan. the interval of the contours. and the close proximity of one contour line to another. a grid of 1-inch square could be used to start the evaluation. If no contour lines fall within the grid the size should be increased. The size of the grid is a function of the scale of the drawing. but it should be kept within the relative accuracy of the total earthwork. but it can take the shape of rectangles or other geometric figures.Course Title: “Construction Administration” Course NO. This method does not require section drawings or complicated area formulas. 6 of 25 . Generally. The grid used is normally square. A small grid will produce a more precise cut-fill estimate. DOCUZIP CENTER GRID METHOD A much easier method for calculating cut and fill requirements for general building and sitework is the grid method.

25. 7 of 25 . The elevation contour lines marked 77 and 78 are closest to the center. In grid B5 (above) the proposed contour of the land is in a relatively consistent slope from the southeast to northwest. By visually drawing the shortest line that will touch these two contour lines and go through the center of the grid. The readings are the average elevations for each grid. then the visual center of the grid is established and the reading is an interpolation between the two closest contour lines.Course Title: “Construction Administration” Course NO. DOCUZIP CENTER The next step is to make readings of the existing and proposed elevations and record them on a chart. The average elevation can be obtained by one of two methods. If the grid has a relatively consistent slope. A judgment is made that the center is one-fourth of the distance between 77 and 78.: 4300-471 Topic: MEASURING EARTHWORK File # 222. the interpolation will show that 77 is closer to the center than 78. The reading is then recorded as 77.

the average existing elevation of the total building area can be used to establish the top of the excavation. This line can help the contractor establish the traffic patterns on the site for the cut and fill operations. 8 of 25 .: 4300-471 Topic: MEASURING EARTHWORK File # 222. The center of grid C6 for the proposed contours may not represent the average elevation of the grid. This line can be established by simply interpreting the location point of grids that show little or no cut or fill. The lowest point is normally the bottom of the granular material under the concrete slab. the grid will have to be filled and the number recorded in the fill column. DOCUZIP CENTER The second method of obtaining the elevation is calculated by averaging the four corners of the grid. the grid will have to be cut and the number recorded in the cut column. The sum of the volume columns will give the total cut and fill on the project. mass excavation may be required. The grid area is then multiplied by the cut or fill columns and recorded in the appropriate cut or fill volume column in cubic feet.Course Title: “Construction Administration” Course NO. The overall size of the building and the size of the footings need to be known before the size of the excavation is calculated. whereas for others trenching for foundation walls or footings may be needed. A cut-fill line is then drawn between the points. MASS BUILDING EXCAVATION The quantity of mass excavation is obtained from the details of the design. The figure above also shows a cut-fill line. For most building sites. If the difference is negative. If the earth slopes a great deal in the area of the building. it may be necessary to break the building down into smaller sections. it may be necessary to take several readings and find the average. The construction method and the safety of the workers will also need to be considered when determining the size of the excavation. The existing and proposed elevations are recorded in a chart. The next step is to record the area of the grid in square feet. at which neither cut nor fill is required. The proposed elevation is subtracted from the existing elevation and recorded in the appropriate column. The depth of the excavation is the difference between the existing elevation and the lowest point of the materials to be placed. Readings are made and recorded in the same manner as the previous method for each of the corners of the grid and an average is determined. BUILDING EXCAVATION QUANTITY TAKEOFF For some buildings. If the difference is positive. If the land is not at a constant slope.

The excavation of large size basements may be undertaken using one or more track loaders of up to 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity loading fleets of trucks that access the bottom of the basement by means of ramps down the sides of the excavation. One particular situation that calls for hand excavation is the situation where the work is to be done in confined spaces. This hand excavation is necessary when contract specifications call for footing concrete to bear on undisturbed soil. there are circumstances where hand excavation methods offer a more effective means of obtaining the desired results.Course Title: “Construction Administration” Course NO.

The particular type and size of backhoe used in any situation depends mostly upon the size of the holes to be excavated.5 and 1 cubic yard capacity filling dump trucks that dispose of surplus material. Large backhoes are used for excavating deep trenches and typically they side-cast excavated material to either side of the trench where it remains until required for backfilling. Trench Excavations For smaller trenches such as those required for shallow pipes and cables trenching machines are available which attach to rubber-tired tractors and provide a highly maneuverable and efficient trench excavating setup. Small backhoes are available as attachments to tractors. Large-scale excavations of this type may call for the pricing of grading and maintenance of these access ramps.: 4300-471 Topic: MEASURING EARTHWORK Basement Excavation File # 222.
