Groundworks in Egham, Twickenham & Weybridge

We’re committed to helping customers across Twickenham, Egham, Weybridge and the surrounding areas to transform their homes and gardens with our extensive range of luxury home extensions, conversions and renovations. 

At Highline Design & Build, we’re also domestic groundworks specialists, who can prepare the ground before any kind of construction project, whether that’s for house extensions, or garden groundworks for landscaping projects. Such outdoor groundworks are the starting point for many projects and you need to be certain that they are being prepared by experienced professionals.

What Are Domestic Groundworks?

Groundworks installation is probably the most important part of any project – get it right and everything else becomes much more straightforward. They include the preparation of sub-surfaces prior to any construction work, including digging out footings and concrete bases, creating appropriate drainage solutions including soakaway sand and connecting into existing drainage systems.

As a local groundworks installation company working across Twickenham, Egham, Weybridge and the surrounding areas, we can ensure your construction or garden project gets the right start every time.

How long will my project take?

Each project is different and the size of the build will determine the time it will take to complete; however, an average rear extension/loft conversion will take approximately six weeks from start to finish.

Will I be able to live in my property while the work goes on?

Yes, you will be able to live in the property. If this is the case, we will attempt to leave the breaking through into the house until as late as possible in the project.

Will someone be on site every day?

Yes, we will have someone on site every day. However, the caveat to this is if we are waiting on drying times or materials. That being said, we will endeavour to have a team member/team members present as much as possible to ensure the project is completed in a timely manner.

Will an extension add value to my property?

Absolutely, it is becoming more and more popular to add space to your existing property instead of the hassle and fees involved with moving. Adding additional square meterage can add up to 10-20% onto the market value.

Can you help with plans/designs?

Of course, we can offer suggestions and ideas, and show you previous projects. We can also arrange for you to visit a previous project if required. We have built relationships with trusted architects and can introduce you to our preferred contacts in order to obtain your drawings.

How long does it take to get planning permission?

It will depend upon whether you are applying for permitted planning or full planning permission. Different councils work to different timescales; however, as a guide from submission of plans it will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
