Groundwork is a speciality and we offer professional groundwork services in Essex to both domestic and commercial customers. Every construction project, from a small domestic extension to an extensive industrial build requires groundwork before anything else. As an experienced and effective Essex-based groundwork and landscaping firm we can start your project off on the right foot and finish it off with high standard landscaping. Unlike some groundwork firms, we can lay blocks and provide plant.
What does groundwork entail?
Groundworkers are the first trade on site – and often the last – carrying out a host of preparatory and foundational works to provide a safe and secure base for a domestic, commercial or industrial-scale project. As a competent and professional groundwork team, will ensure all work is carried out in accordance with building regulations and health and safety legislation.
Some of the initial tasks that we would carry out on being hired include securing access and creating a hard base for works to commence; site clearance; topsoil stripping; earth movement and spoil storage; demolition (if necessary); excavation, cleaning and bottoming out of trenches; installing pegs for levelling; pouring and levelling of concrete footings and housing foundations; the installation and haunching of supply and drainage pipework, upstands, manholes and septic tanks; laying of underfloor insulation and damp-proof membranes; incorporating ventilation; the building of drainage exit lintels; formwork, steelfixing and any initial blockwork up to damp proof course level. This is just a taste of the many and varied tasks that a groundwork team has to carry out before the other trades can even make a start.
Plant hire available
We are committed to providing a ‘one stop shop’ for all your groundwork needs, from initial ground clearance to the fine landscaping that will add aesthetic appeal to your finished project. For example, some companies offering groundwork services expect the project organiser to separately hire plant such as diggers, dumpers, mixers and pumps. That won’t happen if you hire us. If you don’t have your own plant, we can provide it as part of the service.
Reliability and integrity
Our experience in the trade has taught us that efficiency can only be delivered if works are completed to deadline (whatever the weather may throw at us). We are determined to work within your timeframe and have a reputation in Essex for providing a consistent high-quality groundwork service. If you have a project in mind, of any scale or scope, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss it with you in greater depth.
