Groundwork Contractor

in Llandudno, Conwy and the North Coast of Wales

Dragon Renovations can bring a complete range of services to projects in Colwyn Bay, Conwy, Llandudno, Prestatyn and Rhyl. Located in Abergele, we cover all areas along the north coast of Wales. To support the work of our general builders, we also trade as groundwork contractors. This is an important benefit for our many customers in the area because the standard of a build is only ever as good as what lies beneath it.

There’s a further benefit to using a company that combines the services of a groundwork and building contractor. Having just one set of tradesmen onsite managing the entire operation helps in good timescale, budget and quality management.

Most people think of groundwork contractors as the tradesmen who cover the initial clearance, excavation and foundation work. While this is certainly in our remit, Dragon Renovations can also prepare land for drainage installations and utilities, like the laying of electrical, telephone or fibre optic cables, or trenching for gas and water supply pipework.

Planning is the key to a successful groundwork phase.

Planning for Construction

Whenever we take on a project, Dragon Renovations will liaise with local authorities in Conwy, Llandudno and North Wales to ensure operations follow the agreed specification. Groundwork contractors survey, measure and mark the area to be excavated or trenched, involving a representative from building control if necessary. Inspections are important at specific phases of the job, so we make sure they always run to time.

The phases of a groundwork project include:

  • Demolitions and Site Clearances
  • Setting out the Foundations
  • Excavation and Trenching
  • Formwork, Footings and Brickwork
  • Drainage Installation and Cabling

By getting the groundwork right at the first time of asking, the next phase of development can proceed without delay.

Hard Landscaping

Our contribution as a groundwork contractor relies heavily on building and construction work but, for those who have design aspirations for a garden, we can use our experience in groundwork to provide a hard landscaping service. A hardscape is the part of your garden made from “hard” materials which, unlike soft elements like the lawn or the border, don’t change with the seasons. The hardscape is permanent.

The team at Dragon Renovations can build driveways, patios and pathways, transforming properties in Conwy, Llandudno and the surrounding areas using concrete, block paving and Indian sandstone. We clear, prepare, lay the sub-base and install.

We always advise that you look at the bigger picture and use a company of groundwork contractors with the support of their own builders, roofers and tradesmen. In doing so, you benefit from the talents of a team that works together daily, and which progresses harmoniously across all stages of the job.
