Here at D & K Groundwork Contractor Ltd, we take pride in the combined experience our team of groundwork contractors shares. With over a century between us, we can manage the challenges of any groundworks project in Farnborough. However, when it comes to choosing a groundworks company, we understand that property owners place just as much importance on industry-leading certification as they do practical experience. When it comes to projects such as concrete laying, drainage preparation and foundation installation, our clients want the ideal blend of both to offer them the ultimate peace of mind.
On this page, we take a closer look at the two most important types of trade certification we hold, and why they remain so important to groundwork contractors.
First and foremost, we can assure our Farnborough clients that every representative of our company working on their groundworks carries a CSCS card. The term CSCS refers to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme, the foremost skills certification scheme for the UK construction industry.
Put simply, any individual with a CSCS card has proof that they have the required qualifications and training to perform their specific job. As your chosen groundwork contractors, this allows us to uphold the optimal standards for workmanship that we have become synonymous with.
In addition, CSCS certification demonstrates a willingness on the individual’s part to have their methods, training and results externally assessed to the very highest of standards. This complete package of benefits ensures that we deliver foundation installation, concrete laying, drainage preparation or any other groundworks in line with all current UK Building Regulations.
As safety-conscious groundwork contractors, we also hold certification from CHAS, the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme. Established in 1997, the intention of the scheme was to improve standards and approaches toward Health & Safety across the UK. Now, CHAS holds a reputation as a trusted authority on Health & Safety compliance, providing assurance, setting industry benchmarks and offering easy-to-use, best-in-class services.
With CHAS certification, we have proof that the methods and approaches behind our groundworks meet industry-leading standards for safety. For each of our Farnborough clients, this reassurance has a make-or-break quality. Sites involving work like drainage preparation, foundation installation or concrete laying involve significant excavation and the use of powerful, heavy-duty machinery and plant.
Having proved ourselves as groundwork contractors who value optimal safety, we ensure that construction sites not only run smoothly but safely too.
