Site Development

W. L. French's highly skilled team perform a range of site development services, including site and utility demolition, mass grading, hazardous soil and groundwater remediation, deep urban excavations, and site finishes.

W. L. French performs deep excavations for below-grade structures and facilities at logistically challenging urban sites that require excavation support systems and underpinning. Our services include engineered dewatering systems such as well points and deep wells as well as groundwater treatment systems to treat impacted water prior to site discharge.

Our utility construction services include water, sewer, drain, electric duct bank and gas services. Our specific or specialized experience in utility construction includes underground oil/water separators, pump stations, holding tanks, box culverts and utility tunnels. Site conditions in urban environments often require mobilization of specialized or specific equipment and engineer shoring systems to complete our work without interrupting existing utility service while minimizing disruption to the public and abutters.

W. L. French performs specialized excavation, environmental and utility projects with limited scopes of work that often have demanding deadlines and tight scheduling requirements.
