Useful information on groundworks

As groundwork contractors based in the West Midlands, we thought we’d provide you with some clarity around the work of groundworkers. We find there is often confusion between construction and groundwork due to a crossover.

 

What are groundworks?

 

Groundworks is the work that is undertaken in preparation for construction work. For example, the build of a new home or commercial building. This could involve clearing the site, laying the foundation, installing drainage as well as other pipework. It can also include building roads.

 

Typically, groundworkers are the first contractors on-site as well as the last.  It is perhaps one of the most important initial jobs that a site experiences. As first on-site, we are often employed as the principal contractor, although we are also more than happy to work under other contractors.

 

When first on-site, we are responsible for putting in levels, excavating and concreting the foundations as well as constructing the floor. We are also responsible for installing the drainage. 

 

Then when the work is complete, as groundworkers, we are responsible for returning to construct driveways and footpaths.


 

Why are groundworks so important?

 

Good quality groundworks are essential to the construction of any building - it is the foundation of the building. As it will carry the complete weight of the building, it needs to be sturdy. 

 

Groundworkers also create the layout and structure of the building. The success of any construction project is dependent on good quality groundwork. 
 

 

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. 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.
