Richard Gale started the business in 1974 with one excavator which ran up to 1984 when general site work developed into Groundworks and Civil Engineering. This included tarmacadam surfacing crews and the addition of road laying machines with the associated plant and equipment. Contract values had been completed up to the value of £350,000 per order. Over this period, the business had to adjust to size to suit the market forces following a downturn in the construction industry. During this time, the surfacing division made most of the turnover, which is still very apparent today. Contracts now encompass the construction of new build estate roads, footpaths and parking areas, commercial loading bays, residential driveway construction and turning areas.
We are also very active in the residential market, being a popular choice locally for driveway reconstruction, modification, drainage and dropped kerbs, completed to Local Authority standards.
Our premises, situated in Wellington, Somerset were constructed by ourselves in 1988-1989, being custom built to the Companies requirements. These premises are in full daily use by the Company, which changed to Limited status on 1st January 2006.
All works completed carry a conditional guarantee - references are available from completed contracts and works.
We own and operate all of our own plant & equipment - all operators are fully H&S Trained holding the relevant CSCS and CPCS entitlements
Full Health & Safety documentation available for all jobs
