Groundworks is a collective term that relates to excavation, earthworks and the creation of foundations or substructures. Most commonly used in construction and hard landscaping, groundworks are the first phase of a project and they have significant importance to the rest of the build, or the physical installation. At Ravensrock Groundworks Ltd, we offer a professional service that covers all site preparation aspects.
Based in Goudhurst, we offer a groundworks service to private homeowners, builders and smaller developers. We operate across all locations in the A21 Corridor, including the principal service areas of Sevenoaks and Royal Tunbridge Wells.

Our company can offer you an initial site preparation service that sets the standard for the subsequent groundworks phase.

These are all important additions to daily site management.
We will discuss your project with you in detail, and we’ll make suitable recommendations based on what you need.
Excavation and Earthworks
Excavation is another important phase of groundworks and one where we use hand tools and earthmoving equipment to remove topsoil and aggregates to specified depths. Foundations for a new build require more intensive earthworks than a sub-base for a driveway or a patio. No matter what you require, we make sure this stage meets the exact project specification.
We relocate uplifted spoil to waste transfer stations in the Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells areas for recycling.
The final stage of a groundworks project is to prepare the land for the subsequent build or installation. This can be the construction of foundations for a new build or an extension, creating a substructure for paving, or laying concrete bases for garages, sheds and outdoor buildings. Sometimes, we may prepare ground for structural works, such as underpinning.
We have our own foundation installers and hard landscapers available to assist you with all stages of your project.
