While we are called Engineered Septic and Sewer, our affinity for construction sitework services can be traced back to the first experiences of owner/operator David Acheychek, who performed sitework services for the family construction business during college summers. Now he brings his engineer’s mindset to every project we undertake.
We are a fully insured company and have the ability and experience to assist you in all aspects of construction sitework services, from preparation and approval of permits to reseeding the lawn when the job is complete. Our goal is to provide you with a strong, responsive excavation team that knows how to get the job done correctly, on time, within budget and with pride.
Our experience and expertise include earthwork and site clearing, driveway and walkway preparation, building demolition, excavating, trenching, drainage solutions, concrete prep work, tree clearing & erosion control. Some of the more common projects we do at Engineered Sewer and Septic encompass but are not limited to the following:
- Excavation – in short, we can dig anything that needs to be dug. Bonded and insured, but also very, very careful

Ten years as Engineered Sewer & Septic, 20 years prior to that in other companies including the “family business”, Sullivan Paving.
In a typical residential construction project, the sitework contractor shows up after the surveying crew determines the house and lot boundaries. The contractor removes the soil to the depth required for the new foundation and ensures that the soil is firm through compaction tests and compaction with equipment, if necessary. The dig requirements are precise, so the excavation contractor must be able to use a level and transit to match the grade posted by the surveying crew. After the foundation contractor pours the footers and stem wall, the excavation contractor backfills around the new foundation.
In general, we do any and every type of sitework, includes grading, excavation, construction and installation of septic tanks, filtration systems, and utility connections. Other types of sitework we provide include the following:
