Groundworks – As our name suggests, we specialise in groundworks. Common groundwork services include excavations, which we use industry-leading plant equipment to expedite, and the installation of foundations for construction projects (from general hard landscaping, to extensions or new build schemes). Our groundwork contracotrs also take on essential infrastructural work like underpinning, which strengthens weak or failing foundations, and the construction of retaining walls, which hold back earth or water.


Drainage – As well as being groundwork contractors, we’re also qualified drainage contractors can use our expertise to install, repair or maintain underground drainage systems. If your system is showing worrying symptoms, for example you notice a strong odour or you are experiencing regular blockages, then we can carry out a CCTV drain survey to get to the bottom of the problem. CCTV drain surveys are also useful if you’re investing in a new property in Manchester, Halifax or a nearby area, and you want to ensure that the drain infrastructure isn’t going to cause you problems down the line.


Another service we provide is drain jetting. This is a fantastic maintenance procedure which involves pumping highly pressurised water throughout your system. Dirt, grease and lodged objects are displaced and flushed through your system, effectively cleaning it. This improves functionality and prolongs drain life.

Landscapes- Our skills also extend beyond standard groundwork services and into the realm of hard landscaping. We can build beautiful new block paving driveways, or install attractive and durable flagstone paths at the front or rear of your property. If you’re looking to make a statement with your front or back garden, then we can help.


Basements – Whether it’s building a basement before further property development starts, or adding a basement to an existing home/commercial premises, our groundwork contractors can help. We can quickly and efficiently provide basement underpinning and lowering, which creates the extra headroom required for a liveable space by lowering and strengthening the foundations. This allows you to dig down without compromising the structural integrity of your property.


Swimming Pools – Fantastic fun in the summer months, we’ve noticed that swimming pools are enjoying rising popularity throughout Manchester and Halifax, as shrewd property owners realise the amount of value they can add to a property. We design and build swimming pools of all shapes and sizes, tailored to your requirements.
