Substation Groundwork Contractors
Foundations Groundwork are specialists in all sub station groundworks. We regularly work alongside UKPN or SSEN to provide the groundworks for substations and switchrooms.
When you first start looking for a substation you will find that the power suppliers will only provide the substations and cabling themselves within your boundary. They do not dig within your property, they are only digging and reinstating the main source of power outside your boundary (usually within the footway or another close substation).
Substation Base Preparation
This is where we come in, we have a lot of experience in the groundworks that you are responsible for. We have performed templates for the shuttering for the base, we stock the electrical warning tape. We weld the required rebar for the reinforcement for the base, which we also weld the points ready for the earthing team.
We supply and fit all parts of the substation base that are your responsibility which are required for allowing future access to the cables (depending on supplier).
We liaise with the power supplier to ensure that the substation and switch room are installed in the correct location and are easily accessible when needed for maintenance etc in the future. This has included creating gates in fences and clearing brush and creating paths so there is another route to get to the substation when the main gates close.
If you’re looking for the groundworks for substations look no further! We have the knowledge tools, equipment and contacts to make the process seamless. We can also offer contacts that we have worked with several times for the earthing and the switch room electrics.
Typically with UKPN you are responsible inside your boundary for the trenches, ducting, blasting, warning tape, substation base complete, earthing, switch room complete including termination ready for meters.

Price for a Substation Base

Foundations groundworks regularly install the groundworks for substation bases. We can work alongside an appointed earthing team or we can supply the earthing through our partners.
You have probably found this page as you are either weighing up the options of going direct with either UKPN or SSEN or you have committed to them already. We have experience dealing with either company. Neither dig trenches or a hole for the base which are the most vital part of the construction of the substations. Without trenches the cable cannot get to the sub station and without excavating the base the sub station will not be able to be installed. With UKPN they require for laying the cables to and from the substation all excavations, supply and installation of ducts, sand
blasting, stage backfill, warning tape and reinstatement.
SSEN however also do require all excavations, sand blasting and reinstatement but they supply and fit the cable direct to the excavated trenches. For the base itself we have preformed shuttering, angle brackets etc all set out in the correct dimensions including earthing points ready for the concrete pour.
