We are leading groundwork contractors in Maidstone and experienced in all aspects of groundworks construction and drainage,and fully conversant with S.U.D.S. – Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems.

What Are Groundworks?

This is the term used to describe the preparatory work prior to construction and includes:

  • Assessment of the ground
  • Excavation
  • Foundations
  • Temporary and permanent drainage requirements


This is the means by which water is removed from the surface and sub-surface and prevents flooding and other damage. Surface water is collected from hard surfaces such paving and roads.

Foul Water – Also known as waste water, it is the water produced by basins and sinks but does not include human waste.

Soakaways – They temporarily store water collected from surface run-off,e.g. rainwater,before allowing it to filtrate into the adjoining soil. They should be capable of dealing with storm surges and take the pressure off existing sewer systems.

S.U.D.S. – The fundamental principle of SUDS is sustainable drainage and incorporates various measures for dealing with drainage in a sustainable manner that reduces and minimises the environmental impact of new constructions.

It is essential that all aspects of drainage are fully understood and implemented by a professional landscape construction company.
