Before the construction of any new building can properly begin, groundworks are the essential first step. From clearing the land to establishing access and laying out and excavating foundations in Dorset, there are a number of stages necessary to literally prepare the ground for building on. Tricourt Piling and Foundations Ltd offers a complete groundworks service. Call for a quote.
What Steps Do Groundworks Entail?
The first stage is clearing the land of anything that might impede on the building process. Any older building on the land that’s no longer required must be demolished. Unwanted debris and soil must be removed, along with any waste that has built up, and undergrowth and trees. This must all be disposed of responsibly, with masonry and other materials being reused and waste material being recycled where possible.
Next, access routes for construction vehicles, workers and materials might be laid, depending on the site, and utilities installed if necessary. The foundations will be laid out in accordance with the architect’s plans; then constructed. Depending on the type of ground and soil, these might be trench fill foundations or strip foundations.
Groundworkers will then install drainage, both to keep water away from the foundations and for the resulting property, to connect it to the mains system. Only then, when all this is in place, can construction workers begin to lay the first bricks. Groundworking teams will then often return to the project after building is complete to install access pathways or a driveway to a residential property, for instance.

“Congratulations on two members of your team; Anthony and Simon. They are brilliant workers, extremely polite and they are a credit to you! On their departure, they left the site very clean and tidy.”
René and Margaret
“Extremely professional in both their approach and execution of what can only be described as a difficult job. It is so important to get the foundations right and Tri Court certainly did that.”
“Tri court couldn't have been more helpful. They did our piling including ring beam and steel re-bars and cages. They were in and out nice and quickly and worked really hard. Did a great job. I have recommended them several times since. Took the stress out of a stressful time.”
