Le terrassement : la garantie d’une construction stable !

August 22nd, 2014by auteur

Une nouvelle construction sur un terrain non-aménagé implique nécessairement un travail de terrassement. Ce dernier marque le début de tout chantier, qu’il s’agit de travaux publics ou d’aménagement de maison individuelle. Voici expliquées à travers cet article, toutes les démarches et étapes pour réaliser un terrassementnivelement, allant du piquetage du sol jusqu’à la pose des revêtements de soutènement.

Qu’est-ce que le terrassement et en quoi consiste-t-il ?

Le terrassement est une opération qui consiste à enlever une certaine quantité de terre sur un terrain, pour la remettre dans un autre creux, et ce, dans le but d’obtenir une nouvelle topographie du terrain, lui permettant ainsi d’acquérir une construction lourde. Les formes désirées dépendent toujours de l’usage auquel on s’attend. Le terrassement d’un terrain de sport, par exemple, requiert une surface plane et horizontale. Le terrassement d’un jardin, quant à lui, nécessite des étages de remblais ou des surfaces en pente pour les allées. Les travaux de terrassement peuvent être de grande ampleur (c’est-à-dire de gros chantiers) pour l’édification des infrastructures publiques (terrain de foot, travaux routiers, etc.) ou des tâches légères pour des utilités individuelles (aménagement d’un drain français, d’une cour de maison, etc.). Quoi qu’il en soit, sa réalisation doit toujours s’effectuer par une entreprise de BTP.

Les étapes du terrassement

Les travaux débutent par le piquetage du sol afin de déterminer le périmètre à travailler. Vient ensuite le moment d’étudier l’évacuation des eaux pluviale pour éviter les endommagements causés. Ces travaux se traduisent par la mise en place d’une pente de 5 % ou par la pose des canalisations d’évacuation. Les gros travaux peuvent ensuite commencer par le déblaiement, l’évacuation des gravats et le nivèlement du terrain. Une fois la structure réalisée, la pose d’un film géotextile sur la surface terrassée s’impose pour éviter les remontés des racines de divers végétaux et pour ne pas mélanger la couche de remblai apporté et la couche de terre existante.

Stain removal

From the coffee stain on the table to the muddy footprints left behind by visitors and the changing weather impacts on windows and doors, a large part of the job of a janitorial service will be to remove stain. And each type of stain and surface requires a different method of cleaning. For example a coffee stain on a wooden office table will require a mild detergent and a cotton cloth to get rid of but paint or concrete stain on a glass pane may require a putty knife to scrape it off before cleaning with a chemical solution adapted to glass.

Artistic trimming

August 20th, 2014by auteur

Landscaping is becoming very popular nowadays. People like to design gardens with different colors and shapes. They plant flowers and shrubberies according to a specific pattern and the plants are trimmed into different shapes. This helps to give a distinct and appealing look to people’s properties.

Regular maintenance required

However, regular maintenance is required in order to keep the garden’s shape and structure intact. As plants do not grow in a uniform manner, after some time they are likely to lose their shapes. Thus, trimming is important and needs to be done regularly to maintain the aesthetics of the garden. Moreover, if the garden is surrounded by hedges, these needs to be trimmed as well so that they add to and not mar the beauty of the decorated land.

Keeping plants under control

Trimming is also a good way to keep plants under control. That is, if people let trees grow huge, they can face a lot of inconveniences later. For example, large branches may damage their roof, walls and windows during bad weather. Moreover, if branches are left to grow high and outwards they may tangle with electrical wires and create problems for people living in the neighborhoods. If not trimmed regularly, tree branches and hedges can also grow to obstruct the sidewalks and even the road. This can be dangerous for pedestrians and drivers also. Thus, to avoid accidents and trouble, people are advised to tame their plants on a regular basis.
