Time Served Specialists for Groundworks in Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks & All Surrounding Areas | Carey Construction Ltd

Carey Construction specializes in the completion of all groundworks requirements for domestic and commercial clients in our principal service area, which extends beyond our hometown of Tunbridge Wells and nearby Sevenoaks to take in a large part of the South East.

By avoiding general building work to focus purely on groundworks, and related landscaping and brickworks services you can learn about by clicking here, we can ensure the standard of our work is of the upmost standard of quality; we are far from a “Jack of all trades”… we are proven specialists.

From building sturdy foundations and footings as part of larger development schemes, to demolition work and steelwork erection – our 70 years of experience in the industry are put to good use, allowing clients to access distinguished workmanship, at distinctly competitive prices. 

Design & Planning

Because we draw up designs and plans in-house, we can work with clients to ensure that every aspect of what they ultimately envision is incorporated; it also means we’re intimately familiar with said plans, and are better suited to carrying out the required work quickly and efficiently.

Past clients in the Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks area often mention the speed at which we operate, without cutting corners or sacrificing the quality of workmanship for which we’re renowned. If you have subsequent phase of development penned in to start at specific dates, this work ethic can provide peace of mind, as you know the entire project won’t grind to a halt due to unnecessary delays.

Our Groundworks Services

Drainage – Poor drainage can lead to a number of issues for domestic and commercial properties, including:

- Water Runoff Toward Home or Garden
- Flooding
- Standing Water
- Marshy / Boggy Gardens

To deal with these issues or safeguard against their occurrence, we can install soak ways, drains and similar infrastructure to ensure proper management of excess rainfall.

Foundations & Footings – Carey Construction designs and builds strong and durable foundations and footings for development projects of all types and sizes, from residential extensions, to commercial new builds chemes. Types of foundations we construct include the following:

  • Shallow Foundations – Groundworks idealfor structural loads that are low relative to the bearing capacity of surfacesoils. Varieties of shallow foundations include strip foundations and footings (including trench fill foundations and rubbletrench foundations), pad foundationsand raft foundations.
  • Deep Foundations – Groundworks for when surfacesoil bearing capacity cannot support structural loads. Types of deep foundationinclude piles, mini-piles, pile walls,diaphragm walls, caissons, compensated foundations and ground anchors.

Our CITB and CSCS accredited team is able, during the initial design phase, to select from these various techniques to ensure the needs of the project are met.

Demolition – Need a structure taken down safely? We have the equipment, techniques and experience required to handle demolitions in and around the Tunbridge Wells and Sevenoaks areas. Creating a through risk assessment, and developing a method to preserve any areas of a property that need to be left standing and untouched, is an essential part of the process; as is selecting the right tools and techniques for the size and material of the structure.

Steel Work Erection – Structural steel work providesdurable frames and support for properties we work on around Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and their surrounds. Prior to the work itself, we’ll draw up detailed plans to see where and how the steel will be incorporated within the existing architecture, if relevant. The steel work erection itself involves lifting and placing components into position in situ, or on the site itself. These are then secured via bolting or welding, depending on the needs of the project.

Driveways, Patios & Paths – Our landscaping services see us design and build features such as driveways, patios and paths. Working with a range of materials, including brickwork, block paving and concrete, we can realize a feature that will perfectly balance form and function, adding significant value to your domestic or commercial property.
