As Forrest Gump would have said… Building projects and groundworks services go together like peas and carrots. We are based close to Petworth in West Sussex. But as groundworks contractors we work hand-in-hand with building contractors throughout Hampshire, Surrey and the South of England.
Building Projects & Groundworks Services:
So, you might be wondering why groundworks services are integral to the success of any building project. Well, put simply it’s where things start. The strength of a building lies in its foundation. So, preparing your ground for the structure that is going to sit on top of it is essential. Furthermore, you’re going to need services to that building. When you live or work in a building, you expect to be able to turn on a tap and get water. You rely on your central heating system running effectively, and you expect to be able to make phone calls and connect to the Internet. All of these utilities rely on cabling, and for cabling, you need trenches. It’s our groundworks services that ensure your home or workplace is connected. Finally, you’re going to need things taken away from that building, and that’s where effective drainage comes in to remove surface and foul water.
More on Foundations:
There are several groundworks services solutions for foundations; the one we use is dependant on the type of building project we are working on.
- Traditional strip foundation
- Designed raft foundations
- Ground bearing slabs
- Beam & block floors
Find out more about each of these solutions HERE.
More on Service Installations:
Service Installations are the critical systems that we install into our buildings to make them comfortable, functional, efficient modern and safe. Water, gas, communications and electrics all require trench work. The depth varies dependant on the type of service installation. Find out more HERE.
More on Drainage:
Poor drainage can cause a heap of issues. These can include ground contamination, flooding, and sewage blockages, all of which can cause damage to a building or your home. So these groundworks services must be given the consideration they deserve at the start of your building project. Find out more about drainage solutions HERE.
But there’s more…
Finally, even after your building project is nearing completion, we can provide groundworks services that will ensure all the finishing touches are in place. You will need access to your new building or home and as driveway specialists based in Petworth, we’ve installed fabulous driveways throughout Hampshire, Surrey and the South of England. And then, of course, there are external works. This element of a building project is often overlooked when you are planning your budget. But, when you move into your new home or building, you really won’t want to be looking out on the carnage that a construction site can often leave behind. So, that’s where we come in. We provide landscaping services, including parking bays, patios and pathways. Find out more HERE.
