Groundworks in West Wickham, Gravesend, Wider Kent & London | Jigsaw

The essential, prerequisite works involved in construction and development activity are referred to as “groundworks”; but it might be easier to think of groundworks as exactly what it says on the tin - works involving the ground! It’s a broad catch-all term that takes in everything from excavation and the construction of foundations and footings, to solutions for surface and foul water drainage, site clearance and utility trenching.

As the go-to builders for Kent and London locations including Beckenham, Bromley, Chislehurst, Dartford, Gravesend, Petts Wood and West Wickham, we handle all the groundworks required for projects such as a property extension or new driveway construction, while also offering said groundworks on a standalone basis.

Our Groundworks Services

Foundations - Any building or hardstanding needs solid foundations to ensure it stands proud and tall for many years to come. Constructing the right foundations involves careful consideration of soil type, the end use and particular characteristics of the building to be constructed, relevant building regulations, and a variety of other environmental factors. As skilled groundworks contractors, we specialise in excavating and laying stable foundations for buildings and projects of all varieties.

Oversites - This form of groundworks involves the preparation and leveling of the ground surface before construction activity begins around Beckenham, Bromley, Chislehurst, Dartford, Gravesend, Petts Wood or West Wickham. Our builders will create a smooth and level oversite, ensuring a solid base for further development.

Site Clearance - As the name suggests, site clearance involves the removal of debris, vegetation, and obstacles from construction sites. It sees our groundworks team efficiently clear an area, creating a clean and safe environment for construction activities to commence or continue. Said waste is always responsibly disposed of, or recycled wherever possible.

Foul & Surface Water Drainage - Our foul and surface water drainage services involve planning and implementing effective drainage systems to manage run-off. We ensure proper groundworks for the installation of drainage networks, managing both foul and surface water to prevent flooding and ensure compliance with regulations.

Roads, Paths, & Driveways - For roads, paths, and driveways, our groundworks team handles the excavation, leveling, and preparation of the sub-base. We specialise in creating durable and well-constructed surfaces in and around Beckenham, Bromley, Chislehurst, Dartford, Gravesend, Petts Wood and West Wickham, ensuring they withstand regular use and environmental factors.

Utility Trenching - Utility trenching involves excavating and preparing trenches for the installation of utility lines. The Jigsaw team ensures precise and secure trenching for utilities, such as water, gas, electricity, and telecommunications, facilitating a problem-free, quick and efficient installation phase.
