Do I need a groundworker?

Hiring a trustworthy local groundworker is a vital part of any serious building project that could affect the foundations of your house.

Groundwork normally refers to the work done to prepare sub-surfaces for the start of a construction project, and is the first stage of the process (aside from demolition of any pre-existing structures). Quality groundwork underpins the structure and layout of your building, providing enough strength to adequately bear the weight of the entire building.

If you are undertaking any construction project that involves cabling, drains or laying utilities like water pipes and telephone lines, you will need the services of a local groundwork contractor. At Hamuch, we can help you ensure that any groundwork companies you use are qualified and certified for any project you have in mind.

What does a groundworker do?

A groundworker is a subcontractor employed to prepare a construction site for the shallow foundation of a new building, underpinning the entire structure. The groundworker evaluates and plans the depth of the groundwork to ensure a strong construction. Their duties can include:

  • Ground investigation: A ground investigation of the site is needed to help identify past land issues and any potential problems with foundation stability. The investigation data will be used to identify any potential issues with the planned construction.
  • Site clearance: The site for construction will be cleared. The topsoil will be taken up, and if the site slopes, the ground will need to be levelled. Retaining walls to hold back earth and water may also need to be constructed.
  • Substructure and ground stabilisation: The function of a substructure is to ensure a building’s stability. It includes a building’s concrete foundations and piling, as well as the basement if there is one. A groundwork specialist will take care of all of this, making use of sophisticated techniques such as diamond drilling if necessary.
  • Site services: In construction, site services can include temporary or permanent drainage and other utility connections. The contractors will also take care of equipment rental, also known as plant hire.
  • Landscaping: This is the process of improving a piece of land, whether that’s by arranging and modifying existing features or by conducting earthworks to entirely remodel the space.
