Heavy Civil Construction

From mass excavation projects and the remediation of slope failures, to the construction of numerous runways and miles of highway, Independence Excavating is at the forefront of large scale earth moving projects for both public and private clients.

From our humble beginnings, we built our reputation successfully excavating foundations for numerous Cleveland landmarks and have expanded our suite of services across the country. With our extensive workforce, experience, equipment, safety record, and financial stability, no heavy civil construction project is too complex.

We specialize in projects with demanding schedules, multiple technical capabilities, and heavy resource requirements. With our highly trained management team, experienced field crews, and one of the largest equipment fleets available, we are prepared for any challenge.
