Welcome to the website of M Jaques Groundworks and Surfacing. Based in Heathfield, East Sussex, our road surfacing and groundwork contractors cover a huge swathe of southern England - including Eastbourne, Tunbridge Wells, and the wider East Sussex and Kent areas. With over 50 years of industry experience to its name, our team chiefly focuses on providing an exceptional standard of surfacing, covering everything from pothole repairs, to surface dressing and tarmacadam services for public authorities, companies and industrial enterprises.

It might be that you need a car park entirely resurfaced, a damaged road restored to a safe and functional state, a playground rejuvenated with new tarmacadam, or a long-neglected path / forecourt re-laid. The M Jaques team will help you identify the most effective, cost-efficient way to achieve your surfacing goals, without compromise.

And while surfacing is certainly at the core of what we do, we also serve as the areas’ favored groundwork contractors. In this capacity, we handle the installation of driveways, drop kerbs and drainage for domestic clients.

Ours is an all inclusive service, from initial consultation and surveying, through to the design phase, delivery, handoff and any support required post-completion. Operating a 24-hour emergency callout service, we’re here to help you recover from unforeseen events, such as a surface collapsing or otherwise failing.
