Excavations and Earthworks by JD Services

We have the skills and experience necessary to operate large earth working machinery to undertake all required excavations, levelling, and landscaping projects. Our earthworks projects range from small domestic extensions to amenity areas, including football pitches and total landscape schemes.

We have the skills and experience necessary to operate large earth working machinery to undertake all required excavations, levelling, and landscaping projects. Being presented with different group types does not phase us, such as wetland, soft, dry and hard, steep slopes or rocky stone areas.

Most civil works projects will require the use of excavators (diggers) from 1.5t to 22t, dumpers tracked or wheeled to suit excavators and ground conditions, compaction rollers with lambs foot or flat roll for consolidating ground and sub bases. During deep excavations, ground support is used to protect operatives and prevent ground collapse, this can be temporary piling sheets or drag plates depending on works.

A sub base is where the contractor uses different build-up materials to stabilise the ground for the required surfaces to get a good sub-base, this is key to all construction projects to assist with the safe movement and operation of construction machinery, and also providing good foundations for building off. There are also membranes we can use for ground stabilisation that assist with the construction of sub-base layers.

Our earthworks projects range from small domestic extensions to amenity areas, including football pitches and total landscape schemes. We can offer all the required advice to suit the site and generate the desired effect.
