Groundwork Contractors in Sawbridgeworth, Bishop’s Stortford and the Surrounding Areas

Are you looking to pool every aspect of your home improvement or development project with a single company? From house extensions to new builds, the best way to achieve this is by working with builders who also operate as groundwork contractors. The primary phase of construction prepares your site for the building of the superstructure. While the specifics of this stage differ from one job to the next, it typically involves some form of site clearance, excavation as well as the installation of foundations and footings.

Based in Bishop’s Stortford, Cooper & Wells Construction covers locations across Hertfordshire and those in Essex with a CM postcode. Some of our key service areas include Braintree, Chelmsford, Epping, Harlow, Saffron Walden and Sawbridgeworth.

Because our company excels in all aspects of groundworks, you can rely on us to manage your project from start to finish. If you split the groundworks and the physical build between two separate contractors, you only increase the chances of delays, disruption and differences in standards.

Our team of builders and groundwork contractors share over 50 years of industry experience. We are qualified groundworkers holding CSCS and CPCS cards. For your peace of mind, all our personnel are also Health & Safety certified.

When you hire us for your building project’s groundworks and construction, you benefit from outstanding standards in every respect, a smooth transition between phases and, as a result, a quicker turnaround.

What to Expect from Our Groundworks

As you would expect from reputable groundwork contractors, Cooper & Wells Construction has access to a wide range of plant, heavy machinery and other essential tools and equipment. These include excavators (360 degrees), loading shovels, compactor plates, rollers (ride-on), dumpers and mobile access towers.

With our resources, manpower and expertise, we meet all groundwork requirements, including:

• Demolition
• Excavation
• Foundations
• Footings

• Site Clearance
• Landscaping
• Kerbing
• Underpinning

• Concreting
• Tarmacking
• Slabbing
• Subsidence

Our team uses decades of know-how to choose the correct foundations for your structure and site. With a meticulous attention to detail, we calculate your installation with millimetre precision. This takes into account the type of soil at your property as well as the size and weight of the structure our builders will place on them.

By adhering to time-served techniques, Cooper & Wells Construction installs foundations in Bishop’s Stortford, Saffron Walden, Sawbridgeworth and the neighbouring areas that last indefinitely.

When poorly constructed, or installed incorrectly, foundations represent an immediate and long-term hazard. Your new structure will encounter issues far sooner than expected. These usually require significant rectification work. Of course, this comes with stress, disruption, and sizeable costs on top of those you have already invested.

As with every other aspect of your extension or new build, our groundwork contractors deliver results in full compliance with the relevant building regulations.

You can rest assured, our company has public and employer’s liability insurance. We provide guarantees tailored to the unique nature of your building work. Our company also offers the added option of purchasing an insurance-backed warranty through our membership with the Federation of Master Builders.
