Drainage and Section 105

One important factor of ground preparation is drainage and sewer connection. Taking care of these tasks properly before proceeding further can prevent the need for disruptive remedial works down the line. We can connect piping to the main system, install new piping, of course ensuring they're at the appropriate gradient and ensuring pipework runs in a straight line, and ensuring all systems are in working order before the next steps.

Foundations and underpinning

Correct footings and foundations are imperative for any structure. Depending on your plans and the nature of the build, we can advise on the most appropriate system to ensure that your building is structurally sound. If you're dealing with an existing structure and the supporting fixtures have faltered, we can also use underpinning to enhance and strengthen the current installation.

Excavation and demolition

In addition to the safe removal of existing structures and buildings, we can also manage bulk excavation, earthwork, trenching and other aspects relating to underground structures. Given the nature of these tasks, we conduct works with the utmost care and attention, adhering to strict regulations to promote site staff and general public safety.

Concrete slabs

Concrete slabbing can act as a solid, durable and efficient addition to your structure, being a valuable resource for many environments and project types. From homes and businesses to roadways, we can ensure the appropriate reinforcement is added depending on the loads it must handle.

Drives and kerbs

Replacements, new installations, alterations, whatever is the end goal for the driveway or kerb, Comet Civils Ltd can complete all preparation work required to make it work. Depending on the project type, whether it's a small residential replacement or large council alteration, we'll plan to help you stay within budget and time constraints.
