Groundworks in Reading

Here at J & A Groundworks, we provide comprehensive groundwork services throughout Reading. Our team have the experience, skill and the equipment to work on both large and small scale projects. J & A Groundworks are groundwork specialists, covering every aspect of groundworks extending beyond groundworks to demolition and site clearance to basement construction and civil engineering. Before any construction project begins, we conduct a full assessment of the ground, ensuring that it is suitable to build on. After the assessment, we’ll carry out any site clearance services that you require, including land levelling and topsoil clearance before progressing with the project.

Civil Engineering

Our team have years of civil engineering experience, working in Reading on both million-pound projects as well as smaller single track road construction projects. At J & A Groundworks, we are the perfect firm to prepare your space for further construction, undertaking tasks such as ground clearance, excavation, drainage, foundations and road installations. We use the experience we have working on large, multi-million pound projects to deliver quality results on a smaller scale.


We can assist with almost any construction project. Whether you’re looking for help with the design, construction or maintenance of a structure, our civil engineering services will fulfil your requirements, this includes basements. If you’re a business or homeowner in Reading, and you’d like a basement (including multi-tiered versions) installed, then our team can assist you. We can use an insulated concrete framework to reduce the cost and time taken to develop your new basement.
