Project Profiles

Independence Excavating has played a role in some of the largest and most challenging building projects in the Cleveland, Ohio area and beyond. We’ve performed engineering feats to redirect a creek beneath an airport runway and construct a space-age NASA testing facility. Our crews have successfully demolished major landmarks such as the Coliseum of Richfield. And we've met challenges such as inclement weather and aggressive scheduling head-on to extend runways for the largest American military transport aircraft.
