Operators in the Site Preparation industry clear building sites, move earth and drain land for clients. They work for customers in the building construction, infrastructure, industrial and mining sectors. The industry's performance is highly dependent on the level of activity in these sectors. Over the past five years, the effects of the 2008 financial crisis have caused a severe slump in building activity. Lower confidence, reduced spending and limited access to credit affected business activity across all sectors and limited investment because clients were unwilling to expand. Many construction projects were deferred or shelved, while a few were scaled down.
Operators in this industry provide a variety of services that allow a structure to be constructed on a site. These services include excavation, landfill, the preparation of mining areas and land drainage. The industry does not include demolition or drilling gas or oil wells.
