About

The Wedgewood Logo is becoming well known in the West Country.

Wedgewood Groundworks is an independently owned Groundworks and Construction Company, based in Devon and operating across the South of the UK, with current projects in Essex, Sussex, London, Dorset, Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.

We have over 10 years’ experience in the residential, renewable energy, utility, industrial and commercial sectors.

Using our own specialist teams, we work as professional sub-contractors providing civil engineering, construction and demolition expertise for small, medium and large projects.

We have recently undertaken a number of specialist projects including renewable energy infrastructure works, industrial building groundworks, residential demolition and groundworks, directional drilling and deep drainage.

All projects undertaken are managed personally by William and Ian who are ably assited by Dan. The Health and Safety aspect of each project is managed by Andrew Friend, as the safety of our workforce is of principal concern. 

Then there is the office, which is the hub of the business and is run by Sharon and competently assisted by Faye. 

As part of our service we have a consultant structural engineer to advise us in all aspects of Groundworks and building design together with a land surveyor who sets out our projects to exacting standards.

We are also an experienced Principal Contractor enabling us to ensure all of the requirements under the CDM regulations 2007 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 are complied with, through issuing the F10 notice to compiling the Construction Phase Plan and having regular H&S inspections from our independent adviser Atlas Health and Safety Management.

We have our own Health and Safety adviser Dr Andrew Friend who is tasked with the training of our staff. All of our staff are CSCS accredited and our site managers are all SMSTS accredited.

Our Groundworks business employs over thirty people from our local area with many of our employees starting with us when we started 10 years ago.

We have the capability to undertake a variety of different Groundworks projects and pride ourselves on our specialist equipment such as the directional drill. We have our own equipment and run our own Lorries, so we can react to projects quickly only hiring in specialist machinery when required.

Our Groundworks business turnover is circa £3.5 million per annum, this has steadily increased over the past 5 years and is still increasing.
