Services: Groundworks

Setting the benchmark for groundworks excellence in the South.

At Mackoy we pride ourselves on raising the bar when it comes to the groundworks services we provide. Consistently adding to our resources with the latest machines, and taking proactive measures to ensure our work is completed to the highest spec and safety standards.


We don't only break new ground; we shift, shape, and mould it too

Our groundworks remit doesn't just involve digging out trenches. Mackoy operatives are skilled and trained in all areas of essential groundworks infrastructure. From block and beam flooring and earthworks, to advanced drainage solutions, retaining structures and 278 works. In fact if it involves muck, mortar and machines, we're in our element.

With our experienced groundworkers in our gangs, all of who are CSCS qualified and further trained in-house, we're uniquely placed to oversee entire groundworks contracts from start to finish. Specialising in delivering full infrastructure packages for some of the South Coast's leading property builders. Including the installations of roads, kerbs and recreational areas on site.

Our work takes place both above and below ground. Starting with stripping a site of its existing vegetation to get it primed for building. Before excavating the utilities trenches essential live services sit in, and the foundations that give every new home a solid grounding. Always ensuring that our workmanship is executed safely, in line with the latest site drawings, and quality controls.

We know the groundworks we do play a vital part in making our client's homes safe, structurally sound, and comfortable to live in. So we invest in the very latest plant to get the job done efficiently, safely and to the highest spec possible. Conducting regular safety audits of our worksites and providing an on site foreman on all projects. Whose job it is to uphold the excellent quality standards we command on all our live builds.
