A Guide to Groundworks for Your Next Project

Groundworks is an essential service for a wide range of different projects. For both commercial and domestic projects – groundwork is extremely important and often underpins the entirety of the project. In this article, we guide you through using groundworks for your next project. For a quick look at what you need to consider, you need to consider the following:

 

  • Carry out an initial site assessment. This will allow you to evaluate potential obstacles, and hazards and assess the soil type for preparation.

  • Consider a survey to assess the ground that needs to be prepared for your project.

  • Consider any pre-demolition or clearance that needs to be carried out.

  • Arrange for excavation as per your project requirements. Excavation will require strictly following the required depths and dimensions of the foundations.

  • Install the drainage, foundation and utilities as required.

  • Ensure that the ground is prepared. You are then ready to arrange for the groundwork to commence and then can complete the final tasks as per your project requirements.

The Initial Site Assessment & Project Preparation

 

The main goal of the initial site assessment is to collect information that’s relevant to the project. If the project is managed in the correct manner – this can prevent hold-ups and delays to the project later. If there are different companies carrying out different tasks then managing everyone efficiently is really important so the initial site assessment is vital in the preparation phase. Once you have identified any potential risks and the other aspects that you need to consider – it’s time to progress to the groundwork stage. You can also consider a professional survey depending on the complexity of your project as well as project requirements. You may have to make environmental considerations as well depending on the land.
