What Lakeside Groundwork and Demolition can do for you

There’s a reason we are among the foremost groundwork companies in Essex: we have so much to offer our clients throughout the county. Here are some of our most popular services.


We deliver the very best in groundwork solutions across Essex. It is a crucial part of any construction project and we are delighted to assist our customer in Romford, Loughton, and beyond with their groundwork requirements. A mistake at this early juncture can cause problems throughout the build, which is why hiring professionals is so important. All of our groundwork is completed to the highest possible standard, leaving you with a blank canvas to build upon once we have completed our part of the work.

Excavations, footings, and foundations

As any decent groundwork company will tell you, the most important aspect of any building, regardless of size, shape, or design, lies in its foundations. That is something that the team at Lakeside Groundwork and Demolition knows only too well. Our team of professional groundwork specialists are experts at laying foundations. We excavate the area to the appropriate depth based on our structural calculations, before installing footings where required, and finally laying a set of foundations that will last a lifetime and more.

Drainage services

Drainage is another key aspect of groundwork. We will look through your blueprints prior to excavation, lending our technical knowledge and years of hands-on experience where needed. We will incorporate your new drainage system as we lay the foundations for your project, integrating the two processes seamlessly. As well as laying brand new drainage systems, we are also qualified to perform cracked pipe surveys on existing buildings.

Concrete, paving, and driveways

Once the groundwork is complete, you want it to look good. There’s no sense in calling a second firm to handle the finishing touches like concreting, paving, or tarmacking. By instructing Lakeside Groundwork and Demolition you get the best of both worlds, and an end-to-end groundworks solution to fit any eventuality.
