Work undertaken

Service Exposure

Vacuum excavation is the safest method of digging around live utilities, as it allows you to remove the earth from around existing pipes and cables without damaging the underground utilities and causing any unnecessary health and safety or environmental incidents.

Perimeter Digs

Perimeter digs with a suction excavator ensure precise excavation around sensitive areas. The suction excavator’s non-destructive method minimizes the risk of damage to surrounding infrastructure. This technique is favoured for its efficiency and environmental friendliness in urban settings.

Bespoke Access Solutions

The versatility of the suction excavator allows for tailored approaches to accessing otherwise difficult-to-reach areas, minimizing disruption and maximizing productivity. With its advanced technology and adaptable design, this solution offers a comprehensive and reliable means of excavation and access management for various projects.

    Frequently asked questions

    Groundworks refer to the foundation or base preparation necessary for construction or landscaping projects. It typically includes the initial steps in the construction process, such as site preparation, excavation, grading, and utility installation. Site preparation involves clearing the land of any debris, trees, or vegetation that may interfere with construction. This process also includes assessing the soil for its suitability for building, and if necessary, adding or removing soil to ensure a level surface.

    Excavation involves digging trenches or holes to create the necessary space for building foundations, drainage systems, and other utilities such as gas lines, water mains, and electrical cables. This process also includes the removal of excess dirt and rock. Grading involves shaping the land to create a stable foundation for construction. This process includes levelling the ground and adding materials such as gravel or sand to create a solid base. Utility installation involves the placement and connection of essential services such as water, sewer, gas, and electrical lines. This process ensures that the building or landscaping project has the necessary utilities to function properly.

    Groundworks are an essential first step in any construction or landscaping project, ensuring that the land is properly prepared for building and providing a stable foundation for the project to be completed on.

    Cut and fill is a process during excavation where materials are “cut” and re-used on your project reducing the need for additional materials. Any usable removed earth or soil will then be recycled to “fill” embankments or elevated areas to create a level surface.

    It is a term used in construction, civil engineering, and earthworks. It’s the process of excavating earth material from your site (cut) and using it to elevate or raise another area (fill).

    Cut and fill operations can be necessary when building on sloped or uneven terrain. This process uses heavy plant machinery such as excavators, bulldozers, and dump trucks. Proper planning and execution of the cut and fill process are critical to ensure stable and safe construction.
