Get a load of what we can do...
Every day, our groundwork operatives use powerful excavation plants to muckaway and move thousands of cubic tonnes of earth for our clients. This helps to create essential infrastructures to – literally – lay the foundations for new residential housing developments in Britain.
But that's not all we do. We specialise in groundworks and civil engineering - find out more about us.
Our groundworkers create a construction project's vital infrastructure by balancing powerful excavation works with complex technical processes, from clearing a site of its topsoil layer to setting out the foundations of what will, one day, support a new home.
Our civil engineers use environmental and structural expertise to bring a building to life. Not only do they ensure a development project can be delivered on time and on budget, they also provide the complex calculations needed for a mechanically sound construction.
The first step in any new development, our earthworks prepare the ground for excavation. This is done by stripping away the topsoil, clearing the site of vegetation, removing excess earth (muckaway) and leveling out any unevenness (cut and fill) to make way for groundbreaking to begin.
Our skilled foundations excavators provide stable and strong grounding for buildings, following detailed technical specifications so that trenches are taken to the correct depths, and thereby avoiding collapse and infill.
We're giving groundworks a new name: ours.
Since 2011, Mackoy has undertaken specialist groundwork infrastructure contracts for development projects throughout Hampshire and the surrounding regions. Today, our family-owned business works with more than 300 operatives across the South of England, partnering with the UK's leading property builders to deliver new housing schemes in key geographical locations.
