Basement Contractors

Basement Construction and Excavations in Kent

If your property does not, at present, possess a cellar, you can depend on Bon Groundwork Ltd to provide one for you. Our groundwork company offers a basement excavation and construction service that allows you to optimise living space and add value to your property. With a trading history dating back to 1979, we are the ideal choice for this type of work.

Based in Orpington, we have provided basement construction and excavation services for hundreds of properties in nearby Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, and beyond. 

Retrofit Basements

A retrofitted involves a basement excavation that takes place beneath your existing property. Unlike house extensions that stay above ground level for the most part, retrofit basement construction is a complex process, requiring careful analysis and consideration. At Bon Groundwork Ltd, we start by performing soil tests and checking the foundations to ensure the ground is in a stable condition for excavation. For our safety and yours, before we start our basement excavation, we erect hoardings before starting to remove any soil.

Basement excavation and construction demands exceptional standards of health and safety for our team, other contractors, and any on-site visitors. Our groundwork company has the knowledge and experience needed to ensure your project runs safely, to time, and to the agreed budget.

As well as basement excavation and construction work in Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, or beyond, we also provide essential waste removal services and drainage solutions. Each job is carefully planned, using accurate calculations, to ensure the existing build and its foundations support any subsequent work.

Retrofit basements are a long process, taking anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months to complete. We work closely with all our customers, clients and developers to minimise disruption to their routine.

The managers we assign to all basement excavation and construction works are fully trained to meet SMSTS and SSSTS standards.

Below-garden Basements

While retrofit basements are fitted into space underneath your existing property, below-garden basements – as the name implies – make us of space underneath your garden instead. Domestic customers in Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, and beyond can benefit from the decrease in disruption that comes with fitting a below-garden basement as opposed to a retrofitted one.

As with our retrofit basements, our team of groundwork engineers will carefully inspect the condition of your soil before we commence work. While, on the whole, under-garden basements pose fewer structural risks to your property than retrofit basements, we can advise you on the type of basement best suited to your needs and your property. Thanks to our decades of relevant, hands-on experience, it is possible for our groundwork company to install both types of basement at once, providing all aspects of basement excavation and construction as we do so. This allows you to incorporate a sizeable volume of underground space into your property.

Our basement solutions cover the entire project. We handle everything for you from design and planning to obtaining approvals and permissions, right the way through to the physical basement excavation and construction process.
