As a Petworth based groundworks company, we’ve seen many homeowners extend or improve existing houses over the last twelve months. With travel off the cards during the pandemic, people have been investing in their homes instead. But there’s another area in the property market that has seen increased popularity; interest in new-build properties has soared over recent years, with private homebuilding included. Now, whether you’re building your dream retirement home or building your first home with ‘affordability’ as your main driver, you’ll always need to consider new build groundworks. That’s where we come in. Read on to discover how we help.
New Build Groundworks:
Getting the foundations right:
A groundworks contractor will be one of your most important appointments at the very start of your build. Essentially, we help you get things right from the get-go. Foundations are one of the most important elements of any building project. The strength of a building lies in its foundation. The primary purpose of the foundation is to hold the structure above it and keep it upright! We’ll work with your architect and main contractor to deliver the perfect start for your exciting new build project. Find out more about foundations HERE.
Ensuring everything is in place:
The new build groundworks that come in fairly near the beginning of your project are drainage and service installations. As we lay your foundations, we’ll also place all the essential infrastructure needed to sit below the ground. This includes pipework to transport foul water drainage to treatment plants and trenches for essential services, such as power, gas and telecommunications. Find out more about Drainage Services and Service Installations.
There’s a popular misconception that new build groundworks all take place at the beginning of a project. But, in fact, you’ll get used to our friendly team being on-site at many stages, including as you near the end of your build.
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. 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.
