About Foundation Groundworks
With over 40 years’ experience in the construction industry, Foundation Groundworks is a well-established business operating around 40 miles from Guildford. We are committed to the high levels of quality, reliability and value-for-money.
We are skilled in all aspects of groundwork from site preparation to designing and installing reinforced foundations to laying floor slabs and drainage.
Our customers range from private home-owners to small sized builders. The maximum size site we will work on at any one time is 4 new builds and that is if we know the builder. We regularly work with small builders who are project managing and home owners managing there own builds.
Why do customers choose us? We are perfectionists. We thoroughly research a job before starting work, thus avoiding costly problems later. We use good quality materials. We keep customers updated throughout the project. We have exacting standards. We complete jobs on time, on budget and to specification. And we’re tidy.
We have a small full-time workforce of skilled plant operators and labourers, many of whom have been with us for over 10 years. When necessary, we can call on a small group of tried-and-tested sub-contractors who all work to our exacting standards.
We can lay three different types of foundations, depending upon ground conditions and architects’ requirements. 1. Standard ‘strip foundations’, with concrete filled trenches 2. ‘reinforced foundations’ incorporate steel mesh into the concrete. 3 ‘raft foundations’ that allow for sub-soil movement.
We offer three different types of floor slabs, depending upon architects’ requirements and ground conditions. All floors are finished off with either a bull float, hand float or power float which gives a tough finish to prevent cracking.
Foundation Groundworks can do the preparatory excavation and ducting work for all the domestic utilities of gas, electricity, water and BT cabling within a site’s boundaries. We are also specialists in the water industry and are WIAPS and TAPS 5 approved so we can sign off ready for mains connection speeding up time for connections.
We can install a completely new drainage system and connect it up to the public sewer. This is ideal if you’re working on a new build development and need to ensure it has all the essential infrastructure before you sell it or move in.
We offer the complete solution to dropping a kerb. we are specialists in this field and can make the process quite simple. Even if your only in the thought process of dropping a kerb we can offer expert advise.
We are often trenching utilities for small builders / developers to home owners. We can sign off all the work as we are WIAPS and TAPS 5 approved. We can trench to any depth needed and have a range of machinery / equipment to make light work of any project.
