Groundworks in Kent
Bon Groundwork Ltd offers a broad range of essential groundwork services to domestic, commercial, and development sites across Kent and Medway. These services are offered on a standalone basis to enable contributions from other contractors, or as an end-to-end groundwork solution that covers everything from laying foundations and installing drainage systems to basement excavation and construction, hard landscaping, and more.
Operating from our office in Orpington, we cover all locations across the Kent and Medway areas, including Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, and beyond.
We provide our first-rate groundwork services to private homeowners, commercial clients, and developers alike, fulfilling a vital role across the county as trade and industry specialists. Our groundwork company can work on projects with values up to £3m, providing all of the services you need to begin developing from the ground up.
As your local, reliable, groundwork contractors, we are health and safety registered, fully experienced and accredited, and proud advocates of value engineering.
Demolition and Clearances
Before any construction work can begin, it is necessary to have a blank canvas on which to work. At Bon Groundwork Ltd, we clear your site of all obstacles and hazards. This process includes soft-stripping structural elements, followed by a complete demolition and site clearance service. As groundwork professionals, we are committed to health and safety of our team and others throughout this process.
We are an environmentally-conscious groundwork company. All refuse and material recovered as part of our demolition and site clearances are transferred to licensed waste stations in the local area, where they will be processed and recycled for future use.
Excavation and Groundworks
From the very start, we work closely with our clients across Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, and beyond, in order to meet their exact specifications. We offer a full consultancy and surveying service, as well as planning our operations around the needs of your build or development. Our experienced groundwork contractors pay meticulous attention to detail on every aspect of the project.
We have the manpower and the plant to get your construction project off to the best possible start. We can excavate and prepare bases or substructures for basements, foundations, drainage systems, hard landscaping installations, roadways, and more. We have extensive experience in all forms of groundwork including cut and fill.
Structural refurbishment is a specialist area for our groundwork company. It involves applying necessary structural repairs and refurbishments to an existing build as we go through our initial site clearance and subsequent groundwork. We have experience with brick, concrete, and stone structures, and an intimate understanding of modern ground preparation techniques that we combine with our full complement of traditional groundwork skills.
Our experienced groundwork specialists can identify instances of cracking, spalling, or ageing to assess the method and product for repair. This goes as far as providing underpinning to your build’s existing foundations.
Retaining Walls and Temporary Shoring
There are some areas of Kent and Medway where the soil exceeds the angle of repose. Our team of professional groundwork contractors can construct retaining walls to stabilise the soil and prevent collapse, slipping or erosion. Not only do these retaining walls limit the potential for soil movement, they are strong enough to withstand material pressure.
As well as retaining walls that support the weight of the soil, we can also install temporary shoring that supports the weight of physical structures (including walls and ceilings) to stop them collapsing during repair, refurbishment, or alteration. Whichever process is most appropriate, we adopt a value-added approach to engineering that ultimately brings the project home within time and at a sensible cost.
