Site Preparation and Utilities

McFarlane provides in-house septic system design services that takes into account the individual characteristics of each property. We design our systems to be efficient, and environmentally friendly. Every property is different, and our knowledge and expertise will enable us to design the most cost-effective solution for your unique situation.  ​

Site prep is defined as preparing for necessary operations that are required to develop buildings, parking lots, roads etc on raw land.

Preparation includes several different tasks like foundation prep, clearing and grubbing, storm drains, water and sewer pipes, erosion control and management, rock removal, weed removal, underground utility and other tasks.​


Excavation and Backfill

Draining, Trenching, Sewer Hookup

There are many reasons for needing excavation on your property, whether it’s for leveling the ground, putting in a swimming pool, landscaping, adding service trenches such as those required for drainage and plumbing – the list goes on.


Our excavation services go beyond just removal, too. We are also specialists in what is call "remedial building." When an excavation job requires the construction of something to contain materials, we will be able to construct it for you. A typical example of this is a retaining wall, though we often handle much more complex jobs, as well. If you have problems with your house foundation,  McFarlane Construction can repair your foundation for you.




Drains in and around our homes are used for three primary reasons. Firstly, drains are installed to funnel waste water, such as sewerage water, away to recycling plants. Secondly, drains are used to funnel rain and other surface waste water to rivers. Lastly, drains are used to collect water into a receptacle. Drains are often taken for granted and it is not until they are blocked or broken that we truly appreciate their value.

In the civil engineering field of construction or maintenance of infrastructure, trenches play a major role. They may be created to search for pipes and other infrastructure that is known to be underground in the general area, but whose exact location has been lost ('search trench' or 'search slit'). They are also used to place underground easily damaged and obstructive infrastructure or utilities (such as gas mains, water mains or telephone lines). A similar use for higher bulk would be in pipeline transport. Finally, trenches may be created as the first step of creating a foundation wall.
