Whether undertaking domestic or commercial projects, property extensions are a great way to increase useable space. To ensure structures are sturdy and durable, it is important for every stage of construction to provide a high-quality finish. This includes the groundworks and foundations phase, which is essential to providing structural support. As experienced groundwork contractors, we undertake extension projects of every size and requirement throughout Chichester and Haywards Heath.
Depending on the size of your site and extension, groundworks can form a significant part of construction, so it is vital for professionals, such as us, to undertake work for reliable results. Working closely with customers, we assess the needs of each project to deliver the most suitable solutions. Priding ourselves on delivering a personal service, we ensure every job receives close attention to detail in order to provide the highest quality finish.
Though exact schedules and services will depend on individual project requirements, when undertaking property extensions, Wilson Groundworks carry out the following:
Site Clearance & Ground Preparation – This includes clearing the ground of any plants, shrubs and turf, as well as removing topsoil and levelling sloping sites. We dig extension areas down to a level sufficient for putting down the floor and supporting layer.
Trench Excavation – When digging for foundations, the depth will depend on the height and material of the extension. Where ground conditions are tricky, such as clay or rock, we use appropriate specialist methods of stabilisation, including piling and anchoring.
Foundation Installations – As skilled groundwork contractors, we are adept at installing all types of foundations. We assess the best solution for each project, regularly providing trench fill styles for larger property extensions, and strip foundations for simpler extensions in Chichester and Haywards Heath.
Drainage & Service Installation – An important part of extension groundworks, we carry out all necessary drainage work as well as installation of other buried services. This ensures the new structure functions as intended. We locate existing pipework and cables to prevent damage, providing safe and professional solutions.
No matter the project, we source the highest quality materials to deliver superior results throughout Chichester, Haywards Heath and the surrounding areas. Using specialist tools and machines, we ensure an expert finish on every job, upholding our values of reliability and professional service.
As dedicated groundwork contractors, we further achieve this through total compliance with relevant regulations and controls. We make sure every project, whether property extensions, retaining walls, driveways or other groundworks, meets health and safety requirements.
