Building on solid ground

 Why Groundworks are essential for every project


MLS Groundworks is a critical construction partner for any project that requires groundworks.

 Groundworks are an essential aspect of any construction project, as they provide the foundation upon which the rest of the building will be constructed. MLS Groundworks specialises in all aspects, from excavation and site clearance to drainage, paving, and foundation laying. With years of experience and a team of skilled professionals, we are the company to help you with your project.

One of the key reasons why MLS Groundworks is such an important partner in any project, is our commitment to quality. We understand that the foundation of a building is crucial to its stability and longevity, and take great care to ensure that every aspect of the groundworks process is executed to the highest standard. This includes using the best materials, adhering to strict safety standards, and ensuring that all work is carried out in a timely and efficient manner.

At MLS Groundworks, we understand that foundations are a fundamental part of any construction project. The concept is simple – in order to support a heavy load on soft soil, a suitable footing must be provided. The type of foundation required, whether it be one large system covering the entire area or individual footings taking a concentrated load, depends on a number of factors including the type of soil and the structure being built.

We understand that getting the foundations right is crucial to the success of any construction project, which is why we take great care to ensure that our work is carried out to the highest standards. We use the latest technology and equipment to work quickly and efficiently, without compromising on quality, and we keep our clients informed at every stage of the project.

Overall, excavation services are critical in the groundworks process for a variety of reasons. They ensure safety, prepare the ground properly for construction, and work collaboratively with other contractors and stakeholders to ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget. By choosing a reliable and experienced excavation service provider, you can ensure that your groundworks project is completed to the highest standard and with the utmost care for safety and efficiency.

We specialise in the installation, repair, and maintenance of many types of groundwork, from excavation and landscaping to drainage systems, roadways, foundations, fences and more. Our personnel are knowledgeable about the latest trends in groundwater management as well as ground stability for all types of projects.


At MLS Contractors, our commitment to excellence extends to every aspect of the construction process, starting with meticulous site preparation. We recognise that proper site preparation is crucial for the success of any project, and we take great care to ensure that every detail is meticulously attended to. As part of this process, we collaborate with certified tree surgeons who possess the expertise and experience to handle tree-related considerations on the site. Our team of skilled professionals works closely with these tree surgeons to assess the landscape, identify any potential obstacles or risks, and develop strategic plans for tree removal or preservation.

By entrusting this vital aspect of site preparation to certified tree surgeons, we ensure that environmental considerations are respected and that the project proceeds smoothly while maintaining the utmost safety and sustainability standards.


Hardscaping can be used for a variety of purposes, from improving drainage systems in gardens, to adding pathways through landscaped areas. The materials used in hardscaping are typically durable and low maintenance, making them ideal for outdoor use. Hardscape materials come in many different shapes, sizes and designs, allowing our clients to easily customise their hardscapes according to their personal tastes.

Ensuring proper drainage is critical to the success of any building project. Poor drainage can lead to a range of problems, including flooding, water damage, and structural damage, all of which can be costly to repair. That’s why it’s important to work with a professional groundwork company that can survey the existing drainage system and install new drainage if necessary.

When it comes to drainage installation, it’s essential that the work is carried out to the correct gradient. This means that the drainage system must be sloped at the appropriate angle to ensure that water flows smoothly and efficiently through the system. Our team of experts can ensure that your drainage system is working perfectly and protecting your project from water damage or pollution.
