& Utilities

From pre-construction and project management to grading and utilities, our fully integrated excavation services deliver project precision supported by industry-leading technologies at every phase.

Preconstruction Planning

A well-planned job can prevent costly issues and delays in earthmoving and design. Poindexter Excavating is one of the few firms with the industry experience to provide consistent feedback in the preconstruction phase. Our preconstruction services help you build a better design, a better bid, and a better budget.

Value Engineering

Poindexter’s experienced staff will review your plans and make cost-saving suggestions for your project. We can go through this process before the design phase and address such issues as: site balance, import and export, as well as constructability. Our goal is to help you build the job as efficiently and economically as possible.

Quantity take-offs and Budgeting

Engineers can send a CAD file to Poindexter, and we will provide earthwork and/or utility quantity take-offs at no charge. Taking advantage of our extensive experience will allow you to:

  • Reap the benefits of Agtek Earthwork 4D, our premier dirt take-off software
  • Compare earthwork quantities to identify discrepancies in the design phase, before problems become costly
  • Gain from our experience in providing actual budgets, schedules and conceptual estimates
Project Management

As a site work contractor, we are constantly reacting to changing site conditions and adverse weather. That is where our Project Management team comes in. Their job is to plan for the unknown while keeping your project on track by identifying any roadblocks that could potentially bottleneck a project and move them out of the way before they get the chance to stall a project.

Our Project Managers are a key resource in achieving our high standards of quality, scheduling, and safety. They oversee the subcontractors that we use on our jobs and ensure the quality of work meets Poindexter’s standards. Just like the field staff, our Project Managers use the latest in technology to get the job done. We stay connected with our clients, subcontractors and suppliers with Autodesk ConstructWare, HCSS Heavy Job and Plans, and Microsoft Project for project scheduling. These programs give us an edge in identifying critical path activities, scheduling crews and anticipating delays or early finishes. Agtek Earthwork 4D enables us to create state-of-the-art earthwork take-offs which helps our team of estimators provide estimates for any size budget while also adding value engineering ideas to minimize cost for the project.

Grade Control

The Trimble Earthworks Grade Control System is a cutting-edge earthmoving grade control system that puts design surfaces, grades and alignments inside the cab. The system uses GPS, GPS and laser, or construction total station technology to accurately position the blade or bucket in real-time.

Coupled with Trimble Business Center software that effectively and seamlessly allows us to manage data between the office and Trimble Earthworks machine control technology, significantly reduces material overages and dramatically improves productivity. We strive to stay on the cutting edge of technology and use the most up-to-date Trimble software.
