Mission Statement

To move the Southeast forward through innovative infrastructure and site development solutions.


We move earth. It’s what we do. But where and how much are constantly changing. Founded on people, quality and innovation, we are incessantly striving to keep our mission in focus – and growing – ever stronger. The future demands of critical infrastructure projects will require innovative thinking and emerging technologies. Plateau Excavation has the vision, people, and fleet to meet those demands head on.

Values – People, Quality & Innovation

  • People – While moving earth is our business, building relationships and trust is equally important. It’s why we constantly look for ways to do and be more for our employees, communities and customers.
  • Quality – We go above and beyond excavation and grading by delivering the highest quality solution to every project from pre-construction planning and safety on the job site to on-time and in-budget completion. We don’t just strive to be the best; we deliver.
  • Innovation – We are meeting the future of infrastructure head on — investing in new equipment, technologies and services — and preparing to meet the challenges of tomorrow.


Our vision is simply to be the leader in the Southeast in innovative infrastructure solutions and earth-moving work while staying true to our roots and grounded in our core values and principles.

Our Team Makes the Difference

At Plateau, we believe our team is our greatest asset because we believe in our employees.

The comprehensive expertise of our pre-construction and project management teams, along with the proven experience of our driven and hardworking field teams, enables us to solve complex construction challenges and successfully meet client expectations. But it doesn’t stop there. At Plateau, we all work together to see the final project come to completion. Our leadership takes active roles in managing, leading and implementing all projects.

I would like to take the time to recognize Rick Hall, Fidel Velasco, and the Parks brothers on the exemplary job that they did on the Busch Commerce Center project. The job was manned and equipped very appropriately and well thought out. Fidel’s ability to foresee issues and maintain production (even during the rainy days) was very impressive and seemed almost effortless! During the six months of grading, safety was always viewed as top priority. Fidel held a safety meeting every morning and was never late with his weekly safety and JSA reports. Rick and Fidel never hesitated to go above and beyond, and we all often relied on the skill, speed, and experience of the Parks brothers to make things happen quickly. It has been a pleasure working with them and I look forward to many more opportunities!
