What do groundworks include?
Groundworks in construction include the construction site preparations before construction begins: wastewater removal, directing waterways through flows or pumping, pouring concrete on the proposed site, and laying kerbs and flagstones.
What does site preparation include?
Site preparation involves the demolition or destruction of buildings and other structures, cleaning construction sites, and material sales from demolished structures. Additionally, site preparation can include blasting, test drilling, landfilling, levelling, excavating, land drainage and so on.
What are piling works?
Piling is a type of deep foundation. Piling is typically used to transfer load so that a shallow foundation will be able to carry the weight of the structure. It involves placing vertical columns of concrete and steel or wood deep into the ground to give the building structural strength. 
What is the purpose of piling?
Pile foundations are primarily used to transfer superstructure loads through weakly compressible strata to thicker, more compact, less compressible and stiffer soils to increase the size of the foundation and to withstand horizontal loads.
In which situation is a pile foundation recommended?
Pile foundations are required in areas where constructions are large and heavy, and the ground is weak. In areas where settlement problems often occur due to liquefaction of the soil or problems with groundwater, a pile foundation is a better choice.
What is a site waste management plan?
A waste management plan for a site is a document detailing the amount and type of waste in a construction project and how to reuse, recycle or dispose of it. An advanced waste management plan is suitable for all projects that cost over £500,000.
What is the purpose of a waste management plan?
There are two main goals of waste management plan:

  •         Improving efficiency and profitability by promoting the reuse, recycling of waste instead of disposal.
  •         Reduce loss by maintaining a full audit trail of waste removed from the site and complying with waste disposal regulations.
What is a block and beam foundation?
Block and Beam foundation is a structural method for supporting floors, especially for above-ground and multi-storey buildings. It is made of cast concrete, one part of which is a pre-stressed concrete beam, which can be a T-shaped beam or lintel, and the other part is a simple rectangular block.
Are block and beam cheaper than slab?
Although a simple concrete slab can be relatively cheap, its placement and drying take some time, so in recent years beam and block suspended floors have become quite popular. It is slightly more expensive, especially for relatively small jobs, but it is difficult to beat in terms of speed and convenience.
Are concrete foundations better?
Concrete foundations are undoubtedly stronger than cinder blocks. Also, poured walls have better lateral strength, which means that they can withstand greater pressure of water and soil from the outside. The poured wall has no connections joints like a block wall, making it more waterproof.
Do you need to reinforce concrete?
Not every concrete work requires reinforcing. For example, concrete pathways, driveways, small sheds, and low to medium traffic floors do not require any steel reinforcing. However, steel bars will be needed around the footing as well as welded wire mesh to hold the main slab together.
What is the lifetime of concrete?
Concrete is a very durable substance and when used properly; it can last a lifetime without losing strength or deteriorating. 
What is the best flooring for underfloor heating?
The best floor coverings that can be used for under-floor heating are hard surfaces such as tiles, marbles or stones. Tiles are the most conductive floor finish because they transfer heat quickly and with little resistance from the under-floor heater to the floor surface.
What is retaining wall in construction?
A retaining wall is a structure that has been designed and constructed to withstand lateral pressure on the ground when there is a desired change in floor height that exceeds the angle of rest of the floor. The walls must be able to withstand lateral pressure due to loose floors or, in some cases, water pressure.
How long will my project take?
It’s difficult to answer because every project is different.

We will visit you on-site to see how we can help you, and then we will provide you with a free quote without obligation, including our best assessment of how long the project will last.
