Electric Vehicle Charging
We care about the environment and want to make a difference. That’s why we specialise in the groundworks for Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations.
The world is undergoing a transport revolution and electric vehicles are set to become the new norm. By 2030, industry analysts expect to see 7.7m EVs on UK roads. The move to electric is being influenced by environmental concerns, government policy and advances in technology.
As more people move to electric, there is a growing need for EV charge points across the UK and this is where we can help.
Groundworks for EV Charging Points
We have over 25 years of experience in groundworks. Our team are specialists in the installation of EV charging stations for both domestic and commercial applications. We can work in partnership or as a subcontractor on the install of charge points.
What makes us different is the quality of our work. We take enormous pride in what we do and aim to delight our customers. Our groundworks services for EV charging points include:
Ground investigation survey, Gen and CAT survey
Site preparation including setting out, clearance, levelling and excavation works
Reinforced concrete foundations

Useful information on Electric Vehicle Charging
Why are EV charging points so important?
The UK needs to make progress on transport and domestic emissions to meet its net zero goals and help combat climate change. In 2019, the Government amended the Climate Change Act to commit the UK to achieving net zero by 2050.
In the UK, transport is seen as the biggest polluter, representing a third of its CO2 emissions. Road vehicles are the greatest contributor, with petrol and diesel cars emitting the most. In 2018, private vehicles were responsible for around 60% of all transport emissions and 13% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
With the advancement of technology and a push from governments globally, electric vehicles are set to replace fossil-fuelled vehicles. Industry analysts expect to see 7.7m EVs on UK roads by 2030 but for this to happen the infrastructure will need to be in place to support these vehicles.
Why are companies moving towards workplace charging?
Workplace charging is the ideal time, next to home charging, to charge a vehicle because they are stationary for such long periods of time and can therefore benefit from a more significant charge. For employers, there are a number of key benefits to installing EV charging points at the workplace. These include:
Helping you reach your sustainability goals by reducing your CO2 emissions
You can offer electric vehicle charging to your employees - this can be seen as a perk and can help attract and retain employees
You can save more than £1,000 a year in commercial fleet and employee fuel costs per 10,000 miles
You can reduce employee “benefit in kind” tax for company cars
What to look for when taking on a groundworks contractor?
It’s important you do your research when taking on a team of groundworkers. We have heard some horror stories over the years.
We recommend you take a look at their past projects to ensure they produce good quality work and have the necessary experience. For example do they have experience in the installation of EV Charging Stations. Look out for case studies on their website or ask them to provide you with some testimonials. This is something we're always happy to do.
Another tip is to check they are properly maintaining and testing their equipment. Any reputable contractor will hold the relevant industry required documentation as proof.
