Earthworks are also the initial works for all the great construction projects that have featured in the development of our country.
3,400 local and regional companies currently carry out engineering work in France on behalf of private clients, local councils and public authorities.
About twenty French companies share between them the market for large-scale earth moving construction work, each completing several million cubic metres of earthworks per year.
Just the construction of the TGV Est between Paris and Nancy required the extraction and transportation of 49 million cubic metres of earth and rock.
