A quality build starts with professional groundworks

Before the construction of a house or garden project can officially begin the land must be professionally assessed and prepped to ensure a safe, hassle free build. This is a vital stage of the construction process, which requires carefully consideration and planning from a team of professional, trustworthy builders.

Our groundworks team at John O’Connell comprises fully qualified experts in assessing, clearing, servicing, landscaping and digging a range of sites, no matter how big or small, so rest assured this imperative phase in construction will be completed to high-quality standards.  We even have our own plant machinery and cover a range of landscaping services to remodel the land to your exact needs.

For new builds projects, our team will work closely with you to prepare the land, lay foundations and install the appropriate drainage and pipework as the footings for your dream home. Whilst completing the groundworks we will always aim to minimise noise pollution, respect neighbours, comply to health and safety procedures and keep the site tidy and organised.
