Collins & Lane offers a complete range of groundwork services to enable sites for domestic, commercial and industrial clients. Prior to starting construction, groundwork contractors cover everything from clearing the proposed work area all the way through to the provision of the damp proof course. We can work as main contractors or as subcontractors to the trade, using our 15 years of combined experience to complete groundworks to the job’s specifications.
Based in Henley-on-Thames, Collins & Lane provides services in Wallingford and across all locations in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey. Visit our testimonials page to read customer reviews of our work.
We begin our relationship with you by providing a detailed consultation and conducting a topographical survey. The survey helps us evaluate soil conditions, identify instances of erosion and determine which groundwork services your project will need. Soil conditions have a strong influence on the depth of the foundation we lay to support the load of the physical build.
The groundwork contractors at Collins & Lane will complete any demolition work needed, including the strip-out and disassembly of structural builds, and remove generated waste from your site. We then clear the site of brush, scrub and general waste, arranging for the transportation of materials to a licensed waste transfer station in the local area for recycling purposes.
We excavate land in Henley-on-Thames, Wallingford and locations across the surrounding areas, levelling the ground where required and laying drainage facilities before connecting to the mains sewer system or making allowances for the addition of a soakaway should one be required.
The foundations come next. Because we bring all groundwork services to the site, Collins & Lane can pour the following:
Collins & Lane has experience in formwork, falsework and shuttering. Our team of groundwork contractors can provide services to enable new builds and property extensions, major renovations, structural changes, underpinning projects and a full range of building, construction and site-enabling works.
Because the team at Collins & Lane is qualified to undertake streetworks, our groundwork services in Henley-on-Thames, nearby Wallingford and the surrounding counties include excavation and surface preparation for the laying of car parks, roads and highways. This is a specialist field and one which very few groundwork contractors in our area can accommodate.
Our experience with asphalt and tarmac means that we can fulfil any car park or road surfacing requirements that you may have.
With Collins & Lane, all groundwork services come from a single point of contact with the experience, the resources and the workforce needed to manage one of the most critical phases of construction. The Collins & Lane name is trusted and respected by private customers and by the trade.
