Services: Earthworks

Earthworks prepare a development site for excavation, stripping away topsoil and surface vegetation, ready for foundation setting out to begin.


Without earthworks no building in Britain would exist.

Earthworks are the essential first stage in any new development project, vital in preparing the ground for excavation works to begin. Their job is to strip away the top level of ground soil, including any trees or other vegetation. Reducing the earth back to basics, and levelling out any unevenness in the process. Giving a developer a blank canvas to build on.

At Mackoy, our earthworks services take care of this integral step in any new development. Using powerful excavating plant, including hydraulic crawlers and closed-cab dumpers, to make easy work of removing topsoil from the site. While providing the essential muckaway, and cut and fill services, to dispose of excavated earth responsibly. Either taking it to designated landfill, or repurposing it on site. Saving you the time, trouble and expense of undertaking these essential works yourself.

In fact our earthworks offer developers the most cost-effective and time-efficient means of clearing their project site ready for setting out works to start. Helping to cut away and move thousands of tonnes of porous, compacted, and stony soil with ease. Keeping our client's builds on time and on budget.
