Specialists groundwork contractors

From huge commercial developments to stands for temporary school classrooms or a range of domestic work including new build houses and garden sheds, our team have an extensive experience of laying foundations to exceptional standards. The primary purpose of building foundations is to transfer load and weight from the building to the earth it sits on top of, and they divide loosely into two main categories;

At Andy Bolton Groundworks we employ a highly experienced team who can deliver expert advice and recommendations, design and planning support, comprehensive preparations and the kind of quality finish you expect from groundworks professionals.

Something we’ve been working on a lot are school and educational buildings providing a mixture of foundations for structures such as new classrooms, temporary and mobile classrooms, storage sheds and other services such as paving and car parks; we’ve got to know the educational sector well and guarantee highly competitive prices and quick turnarounds so you can get your classrooms operational quickly.

Full support for education and the public sector.

Shallow foundations
Embedded around a metre into the soil, shallow foundations transfer load weights to soil or bedrock below the frost line. Spread footings consist of strips or pads of concrete ideal for residential housing constructions, whilst the simpler slab-on-grade which lays a solid slab of concrete is perfect for smaller outbuildings, garages and garden sheds.

Deep foundations
Used in very large buildings or those built on an unstable surface, deep foundations penetrate much further into the floor for increased stability utilising a range of methods including impact driven piles, drilled shafts, piers and earth stabilised columns. Ideal on most commercial and industrial builds our engineers offer a complete survey and consultation to help you choose the right foundation for your building and ground surface.
