Barriere’s Comprehensive Site
Civil Services

Over seven decades of experience working with Gulf South soils combined with the same amount of construction management expertise makes Barriere a natural comprehensive site preparation services provider. The combined strength of our unified groups enables us to build large, complex projects on compressed project schedules, saving you time and money. 

We offer demolition services of existing structures as well as clearing, grubbing, and disposal services. Barriere’s skilled and experienced employees  assess the scope of the project and determine the grading required by evaluating such factors as soil composition and moisture levels.

Large projects often require storage of high-value assets that are continuously checked in and out. We offer effective solutions to prevent misplacement, misidentification, loss, and theft of material.

Our professionals perform accurate, high-quality subsurface utilities to prevent scheduling delays and budget increases and to avert hazards due to unknown or misrepresented utilities such as underground lines and pipelines. We can perform drainage, waterline, sewer, fire water, and portable water.

Our excavating, backfilling, and compaction services include site preparation, dewatering and/or runoff control measures, trench shoring, and maintenance. Cleanup includes proper disposal and, when possible, recycling of the materials — all in full compliance with government, state, and industry regulations.

Barriere offers preloading or surcharge loading services as part of ground remediation to reduce total and differential settlements, including by building temporary fill embankments. We have the equipment and experience needed to make sure that the ground is successfully consolidated before construction begins. To ensure enough time for consolidation, Barriere optimizes preload and surcharge solutions to the site’s specifications, incorporating embankment height and PVD/sand drain spacing design.

Wherever a temporary access road may be required — whether in remote areas that lack paved roads or near excavation sites where several access points must be available for large vehicles and construction equipment — Barriere offers cost-effective, timely construction of sturdy and safe temporary road surfaces.

We know soil, and that’s why we offer a full range of soil stabilization and improvement services. These include soil cement stabilization, which offers a cost-saving and time-saving alternative to traditional mucking and filling. Our fleet has drive mixers with stabilization and reclamation capabilities, plus the support equipment needed for compaction and grading.

Barriere specializes in the GPS-controlled installation of aggregate base, including bituminous concrete.

Barriere’s qualified professionals have the technical knowledge needed to offer complex rail infrastructure construction services. We set the bar for the construction of safe and reliable rail systems, and we can perform all critical path work required to build the linear infrastructure.

Barriere installs both cast-in-place and precast sumps, in both new and retrofit set-ups. We executed sumps incorporating liner, stainless-steel tub, and acid-resistant concrete & coating.

Experienced in small to large-scale structural jobs. We will meet the specific need of your job. Barriere provides in-house pipe support fabrication.

Our services include the construction of piperack and pipebridges in industrial settings. This capability was developed in order to provide turn-key capabilities to our customers from the foundations to the installation of the steel.
