Thank you for your interest in KBS Earthworks, the Triad’s construction partner for grading, excavation, demolition, stream restoration and a host of other land services. As a locally-owned business, we are committed to serving the Triad Area with excellence. We work with each client to find an innovative solution that fits within their budget. The KBS team is fully insured, licensed and equipped to handle jobs large and small. Whether you have a simple driveway project or an expansive lot to be cleared, we can complete the task on time and on budget.

KBS understands that you don’t have time to waste, so we do things right the first time around. Since 2003, KBS Earthworks has grown from a one-man bobcat service to a fully-equipped sitework company. Our team has expanded to include several experienced individuals, and our fleet of equipment allows us to respond quickly and efficiently to jobs across North Carolina. After completing many complex environmental projects, such as stream restorations and soil remediations, we have earned respect from contractors, private developers and municipalities alike. With superior customer service and a strong work ethic, we set ourselves apart from competition, even on the most challenging, deadline-driven jobs.

Our portfolio reflects a wide variety of projects including erosion control, pond building, drainage solutions and environmental restoration. Images from the field can be seen here.

Our Purpose:

At KBS Earthworks, our goal is to provide progressive, thorough, and timely service for our clients. We strive to work within your constraints, utilizing cutting-edge technology and meeting every need with excellence.


KBS Earthworks was founded as Kory’s Bobcat Service in 2003, but has since grown to offer a broader range of land services. Owner Kory Strader is a North Carolina native who is passionate about serving the community with excellence. After growing up and working on his family’s farm in Julian, N.C., Kory was motivated to use his unique skillset in a career – providing top quality earthwork that saves people time and money. Over the years we have attained a great deal of equipment and completed thousands of jobs, but one thing remains the same: our commitment to the client, and our dedication to a job well done.
