New Construction Parking Lots

Need a Parking Lot Site Development Contractor?

Before you do paving for your new construction parking lot, you have to make sure the site is prepped correctly first.

At Shilling Excavation, we know that the site prep process is a crucial first step to any construction project – and that includes parking lot developments.

To get your site ready for functional new construction parking lots, hire the expert crew at Shilling Excavation.

Soil testing

The subgrade soil must be strong enough to support the parking lot as well as the construction machinery that will be used to pave it.

Part of our parking lot preparation services is proper removal of any low-quality type of soil and assurance that the subgrade soil is sufficient

Parking Lot Clearing

Another important aspect of our parking lot preparation services. Efficient and prompt clearing of all rocks, dirt, plants, debris, and other obstacles.

Expert removal and clearing of anything that could damage your subgrade soil. 

We’ll also ensure that the subgrade soil is graded, so it’s adequately leveled for parking lot development.

Proper Drainage Planning

Any endeavor in the realm of site development, such as building a parking lot, requires comprehensive drainage planning. Ensuring your project has a clear and robust strategy for managing groundwater becomes crucial, particularly during the rainy season, to maintain dry subgrade soil.

The utilization of septic tanks can be part of an efficient drainage plan, which is a vital aspect of your parking lot preparation. This not only aids in maintaining the integrity of your parking site but also significantly prevents future damage.

Commercial Building Pads

Shilling Excavation provides commercial building pads installation that meet industry standards and exceed our clients’ expectations.


One of the most integral steps in commercial development is the construction of building pads. 

A pad is raised section of the ground where the foundation will lay. Created during the earthwork part of the project, the building pad is a vital component to ensure a safe, stable, and sturdy structure.

Since 1992, the Shilling Excavation has served commercial clients throughout the Central Texas area. With any building – residential or commercial – the essential component is the pad – or the foundation. 

Our experienced crew ensures that the soul your commercial building sits on is strong and stable enough for the foundation to sit on.

At Shilling Excavation, we do commercial building pads the way it should be done – and we do it right the first time.

Take advantage of our expertise in commercial building pad installation. When we’re done with the project, you can confidently move on to the next step of your commercial development – so you can quickly turn your site into a thriving commercial location for your business.


Accuracy and expertise play important roles in the building site preparation and development process. As trusted contractors since 1992, our site prep process includes:

  • Making sure the site area does not shift.
  • Leveling and raising the ground to keep water away from the collecting around or going in your building.
  • Removing all stumps, rocks, vegetation, root balls, and other obstructions under the building pad. Stumps and vegetation will decompose over time and damage the foundation.
  • Properly shaping the topsoil to allow for an even taper around the site of the building pad. The taper ensures water does not go around the building.


We create tailor-made commercial building pads solutions and residential building site preparation depending on our clients' specific project needs.

Pad Excavation Procedures

We have a fleet of top-of-the-line machinery for all our excavation of pad foundation projects. You can trust our expertise and experience in the industry to perform efficient pad excavation procedures to kick off your construction development.

Pad Footing Excavation

Depending on your project requirements, pad foundations can either be circular, rectangular, or square in shape. If the pad is expected to bear a heavily loaded building, the pad footing is stepped.

To determine your project’s specific excavation for pad footing needs, your engineer must do a comprehensive assessment of the following:

  • Accessibility
  • Subsurface condition
  • Extent of the load
  • Distance of other structures
  • Water depth

Proper Excavation of Pad Foundation

Pad Leveling

If you need pad leveling services, hire the professionals at Shilling Excavation. We’ll ensure that the foundation your will built your structure upon is perfectly placed, well-crafted, and leveled.

The type of foundation you plan to have will dictate your pad leveling requirements. No matter what it is, we have one goal: to give you an accurately leveled foundation.
