New Foundations in Bournemouth and the Surrounding Areas | Quality Services From Local Groundworkers

At James Groundworks Ltd, we lay new foundations to support properties in Poole, Bournemouth and the other areas we cover. We undertake a comprehensive service for durable foundation construction and can manage drainage services to ensure all aspects of the groundworks are covered. Our local groundworkers dig foundations for new builds, extensions, commercial structures, new driveways and patios. We also dig out the footings for drainage installations and utility pipes.

Our experts can complete the groundworks for basements and large-scale projects if required.

We provide a full service for all of the foundations we dig. Our team begins installation by clearing the site and marking out the foundations. We then dig and remove the soil from the designated area before adding concrete. 


Types of Foundations

We excavate a variety of different types of foundations to fulfil all requirements. Our knowledgeable local groundworkers at James Groundworks Ltd are happy to advise customers on which new foundations will be best for their properties.

The types of foundations we excavate include:

  • Raft Foundations

  • Trench Fill Foundations

  • Deep Foundations

  • Strip Foundations

Get In Touch

Raft Foundations

Raft foundations are reinforced concrete slabs underneath a building's entire extension. This type of foundation effectively distributes a building's weight over a larger area than other types. By spreading the load, the pressure on the ground is lowered.

Trench Fill Foundations

Trench-fill foundations eliminate the need for bricklaying below ground. We pour concrete close to the surface ground level, saving time and hassle. This means projects can get off the ground quickly once our local groundworkers have completed their service.

Deep Foundations

Deep foundations are typically needed when sites have weak, compressible soil and may also be required for specific construction projects. Surface conditions do not affect deep foundations because they are built so low below ground level.

Strip Foundations

Strip foundations are a type of shallow foundation often used for domestic buildings in Bournemouth, Poole and all of the surrounding areas. These new foundations are ideal for sites with stable ground conditions and good load-bearing capacities. They are relatively quick to create and cost-effective.
