The Ground Works Process

Preparing the groundworks for a construction project is an essential step in ensuring the success and longevity of the project. As a groundworks contractor, we at Wilsons Ground Works understand the importance of this step and have the expertise and experience to ensure that the groundworks are done correctly.

The first step in preparing the groundworks for a construction project is to conduct a site survey. This survey allows us to assess the current condition of the site and identify any potential issues that may need to be addressed before construction can begin. This includes assessing the soil conditions, checking for any potential hazards such as underground utilities or contaminated soil, and determining the location of any existing structures or natural features that may need to be protected or incorporated into the project.

Preping The Site

Once the site survey is complete, we can begin to plan and design the groundworks. This includes designing the foundation system for the building, developing a drainage plan, and creating a plan for managing any excess soil or debris that may be generated during the construction process.
The next step is to prepare the site for construction. This includes clearing the site of any debris or vegetation, and grading the site to ensure that it is level and stable. We also conduct soil testing to ensure that the soil is suitable for the construction project and that any necessary adjustments can be made.

After the site is prepared, we can begin to install the foundation system. This includes excavating for the foundation, installing any necessary reinforcing steel, and pouring the concrete. It is crucial that the foundation is installed correctly to ensure the structural integrity and stability of the building.

Drainage

We also install the drainage system, which helps to manage water on the site and prevent damage to the building. This includes installing drainage pipes, creating swales or French drains, and installing catch basins or other drainage structures.

Finally, we manage any excess soil or debris generated during the construction process. This includes stockpiling the soil for future use, disposing of any contaminated soil, and ensuring that all debris is properly disposed of.
