At RJS Contractors, we offer a range of groundworks and civil engineering solutions tailored to meet the unique demands of both domestic and commercial projects.

Groundworks Project

Our Groundworks Services Include...

Site Clearance

We’ll remove all obstacles from your site, such as trees, old buildings, or other debris to create a clear area for construction.

Excavation and Earthworks

Depending on your construction project's specifics, significant amounts of soil may need to be removed or relocated. We’ll create a stable, level surface or dig foundations.

Foundations

We know that foundations are a vital part of any building. The type of foundation your building will need depends on the building size, the soil's nature, and the load-bearing capacity of the ground.

Ground Reinforcement

The ground may need to be reinforced to ensure it can bear the weight of your planned structure. This could involve techniques like soil compaction or the use of geogrids or piling.

Retaining Structures

In some cases, retaining structures such as retaining walls or shoring may be required to prevent soil movement and ensure the stability of the site.

Drainage and Utilities

We can install all the necessary drainage and utility systems, including sewer lines, water pipes, and gas lines, as well as conduits for electrical and telecommunications cables.

Hard Landscaping

We cover all hard landscaping, such as laying car parks, driveways, roads (including pothole and remedial works), paths, or patios, and building retaining walls or other structural landscape features.

Dropped Kerbs & S278 Work

Section 278 of the Highways Act 1980 allows a developer to enter into a legal agreement with a local highway authority to make alterations to a public highway as part of a development. These changes can include anything from minor road improvements to the construction of new roads or junctions.

Demolition

We will safely and efficiently undertake demolition projects of any size.

Happy Customers

"RJS Contractors have carried out construction works for us over the last 2 years and all of their tradesmen are very professional and are compliant with all site regulations. As most sites these days we very often have to deal with a varied list of problems i.e., noise, deliveries, clearing of rubbish and local issues that a polite approach is required. RJS Contractors are very aware of Building Control requirements that have to be adhered to and are totally compliant with all regulations. We would have no problem recommending RJS Contractors"

“Overall great business to work with. Dan who provided the quote took time looking at the job and explained all the options to me and how the work would be completed. Louise was always responsive to communications and the guys onsite who completed the work were respectful, tidy and did a professional job on time and to a high standard. I won't hesitate to recommend or use again.”

"I have worked with RJS Contractors since 2014. They have over the years done a variety of projects for me from small to large across most groundwork activities: foundations, blockwork, concrete slabs, cable laying, drainage laying and resurfacing. They were the principal groundwork contractor for me in the erection of our latest 6,000ft warehouse unit. The latest project they did for me was principal groundwork contractor on a new build residential barn conversion. I have always found Dan and his team conscientious, reliable and easy to work with."

"RJS Contractors laid a front path and slab area in my front garden. I was very pleased with the quality of the work done. All communication was timely and very professional. I would definitely recommend using the company."

"We recently had a last minute project to lay a concrete base as a foundation. As we are a school it was vital that this was done on a very specific date. Given that RJS Contractors were only given around 3 weeks notice, they were able to survey, price and complete within that time. I have dealt with Dan at RJS on previous occasions and always found him to be helpful and accommodating, doing whatever it takes to complete according to customer's requirements. The work was completed as promised, on time and the site left tidy. I would not hesitate to contact them again for any future projects."
