Be it your house or office construction, groundworks create the base upon which the entire building stands. Groundworks are an essential part of any construction project and need to be handled with the utmost care, precision & supervision. Ground works prepare a home construction site for the shallow foundation of a new home. Typically, this involves the groundworkers clearing the site, laying a foundation, installing drainage & other pipework.
We know what we are doing, we prepare sub-surfaces for the later construction stage and involve critical and often legal requirements, such as ground investigation and site clearance. Ground investigation is important for identifying the overall condition of the site so any issues can be addressed before construction begins. Some of the important checks we make cover overall ground stability and risk assessments.
Laying a good drainage system is also required prior to many constructions and refurbishments. As experienced groundwork contractors, we will accurately calculate the most suitable invert levels and trench depths for laying drainage systems on site. Trenches must then be carefully dug to the required depth and gradient, to provide the necessary support for pipes.
Commercial Groundworks Process:
• Ground investigation
• Site preparation and clearance
• Ground stabilisation
• Sheet piling
• Reinforced concrete
• Drainage systems
Groundworks prepare land and its sub-surfaces for the start of construction work. Usually, ground works include multiple steps like ground investigation, site clearance, substructure, ground stabilisation, site services and include landscaping too.
Our experience has taught us that all construction projects rely on quality groundworks & foundations. The complete weight of a structure relies on having a strong base to ensure the building is stable, safe and structurally sound. It’s imperative to have well-planned & delivered groundwork, as it provides the layout and prepares the ground to bear the weight of the entire structure. Upon completing the installation and before drains are backfilled, we can carry out a water or air pressure test to ensure the system is watertight.
