Complete Groundwork Services

All good builds begin with great groundworks, which is why we have been the company of choice across the Bromley borough and Kent for decades.

Fost & Co offers a professional groundwork contractor service that is second to none. Our attention to detail means your construction get under way as soon as your building team is on site. We offer a clear schedule of works ensuring your foundations and footings are laid in good time for other work to begin.

We can be called upon to provide one or all of these groundworks. Read on to find out more.

Demolition Groundworks

Before we can set to work excavating and laying the footings, the area must be cleared of all non-essential buildings, trees and shrubs.

At Fost & Co our attention to detail and quality of work determines that all demolition groundworks tasks are performed under the strictest of safety conditions and all rubble, rubbish and debris are fully cleared from the site before the next phase begins.

Excavation Groundworks

Following the clearance of the area, the first part of any groundwork task is to excavate. This entails digging out the earth in preparation for the laying of the foundations. One of the most important jobs, excavation groundworks require some serious kit, which is why we use only the latest machinery to ensure our excavation work is carried out swiftly and also safely.

Whether you are building an extension, swimming pool or planning a large area to be landscaped, Fost & Co can help make your plans a reality.

Foundation Groundworks

Whatever your build project going forward, Fost & Co is on hand to lay the firmest footings or foundations.

  • Footings: these are strips that are dug out to a specified width and depth as decided upon by an architect of structural engineer.
  • Foundations: sitting atop of the footings, foundation is a general term for the earthworks that help support any given building

Drainage Groundworks

Last but certainly not least, Fost & Co’s skilled team can help plan, prepare and lay drainage groundworks for sewerage systems and pipework ahead of the build.

We ensure a safe pathway, checking all neighbouring drains and pipework for all mains providers as well as ‘foul’ drainage which relates to waste from kitchens, bathrooms and associated appliances.

Garden and Patio Groundworks

There’s more to laying out a lawn or patio than just putting down a new surface. For it to be a success, you need it to be properly levelled and, where necessary, to have the right foundations, drainage and other garden groundwork essentials installed. Our team of experts will ensure that all garden and patio groundwork is completed, leaving you with the perfect blank canvas to work on.

Driveway Groundworks

Whether you want a block paved, resin-bound or tarmacked drive, you need to make sure the sub-layers beneath them are fit for purpose. Will rainwater drain away properly? Will the drive support the weight of your vehicle? Our experienced driveway groundwork experts will address all these concerns and more, ensuring your new drive can be fitted to perfection.
