The Importance of Quality Groundworks
Most development projects start with groundworks. With the right approach, you’ll be in great shape for subsequent phases of development; with the wrong approach, the entire project may be in danger, with people and property both placed at risk. You need a team of groundwork contractors who can figure out the lay of the land, and bring the right techniques and aggregates to bear on the task at hand…
Excavations, Muckaway & More

One area we specialise in is bulk excavations and cut and fill earthworks, which see us move massive volumes of earth to facilitate construction activity. Topsoil is stripped and the surface is levelled, with as much soil reused as possible to ensure the job is handled in an environmentally friendly manner – a priority for many of our Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, East Sussex and Kent clients. The M Jaques Groundworks and Surfacing team ensures to handle all associated muckaway, which we also undertake on a standalone basis. This ensures a clean, tidy site ready for handover or the next stage of development.

Alongside excavation, muckaway and filling, we deliver drainage installation, road surfacing and repair projects, and construct foundations. The former two services can be read about on the dedicated pages you’ll find on this website.

The Right Equipment for the Job

M Jaques Groundworks and Surfacing continues to invest in powerful plant machinery which helps us make short work of even the most arduous of excavations. Our team are trained to operate 1 to 10 ton diggers, and a fleet of compaction plates and whackers, single and twin drum rollers, hook loaders, tippers and tractors ensure we’ve a tool for every occasion. Each operator is registered with the Construction Plant Competence Scheme, ensuring safe usage at all times.

This equipment is absolutely essential for work such as highway excavation and footpath construction, where time is often of the essence.
