T and M Buildings provides a complete groundworks solution from the initial site preparation to the drainage and concreting. We also offer concrete grooving.
Once any demolition and site enabling works have been completed, the ground preparation can commence, which involves preparation of the sub-surfaces so that construction work can begin.
The ground to be covered by the structure should be reasonably free from any materials that could damage or affect its stability. This requires the clearing of vegetation, topsoil and any pre-existing foundations. This can include roots, especially if the roots are in close proximity to the proposed structure and / or below the proposed drainage. The clearance depth will depend on the profile of the land, and if a slope exists, then the ground may have to be levelled.
As part of our service we offer site clearance – the picture depicts the preparation for a grain store near Hatherleigh.
Installing slurry channels
The picture shows the installation of slurry channels, near Hartland, in preparation for a new robot milking parlour.
Constructing a pre-cast panelled pit
The first picture shows the groundworks for a pre-cast panelled slurry reception pit near Colebrook, Crediton. The second picture shows the concrete about to be poured in to create the floor.
Groundworks in preparation for concreting
We carried out the groundworks in preparation for concreting, to form a feed passage for a farm in Petrockstowe.
We provide concrete grooving as part of our groundworks service.
