‘Groundworks’ is classified as any part of an external installation in which all or part of the installation occurs beneath the ground. This could include excavations, sub-base preparation, asphalt or concrete bases, soakaways, manholes and draining channels.

All work now has to be performed in compliance with sustainable urban legislation, which came into force in 2008. This has been enforced to reduce the risk of flooding in urban areas, At Limegate Specialist Surfacing, we have both the know-how and expertise to advise on all aspects of groundworks in order to make sure your project is SuDS- compliant.

Careful preparation and construction of any groundworks is essential

If you attempt to skimp on your project costs by using poor quality materials, then you could be serving yourself with future issues, as more expensive rectification work is likely to be required going forwards. We ensure that all groundworks are constructed to the correct depth and build-up, therefore meeting the requirements of any project.

We can provide a fifteen-year guarantee on all our resin bound surfacing projects because of the high standards we insist upon. If a driveway is to be installed on an existing lawn, we remove grass and top soil up to a depth of 250 millimetres, then we install drainage and edgings. We fill in the excavation up to a depth of 150 millimetres with a sub-base, then install a asphalt base in readiness for whatever resin surfacing finish is required.

When installing one of our resin bound or resin bonded solutions we develop the groundworks specification to use a type 3 MOT sub-base material. This is because of the highly permeable nature of the resin material. A resin bound or resin bonded solution offers convenience, longevity and is extremely cost-effective.
