Setting Out Engineering

We are lucky enough to benefit from our own in house total station and GPS setting out systems, with this technology we are able to view drawings on auto cad and transfer their information with exact precision to site.

Ground Bearing Slabs

A ground bearing slab is a concrete slab that is poured within the walls of a structure. Concrete is usually 150mm thick with reinforcing mesh to suit ground conditions. Laid on compacted sub-base allowing for a damp proof membrane. Applications of this type are normally constructed in good level ground conditions.

Beam And Block Floors

Suspended concrete floor construction is increasingly the most common flooring system specified in residential construction. The suspended floor does not rely on support from the ground below but instead is supported by the external walls, and therefore the foundations below.

Raft Foundations

A raft foundation is a reinforced concrete slab under the whole of a building or extension, 'floating' on the ground as a raft floats on water. This type of foundation spreads the load of the building over a larger area than other foundations, lowering the pressure on the ground.


Underpinning is a method of works that transfers the load of a worn out inadequate foundation and transfers the loads to a newly constructed foundation underneath. The new foundation takes into account the possible change in ground conditions for many years to come.

Basement Excavations

We undertake a wide range of basement excavations from excavating existing structures to the formation of new basement on a varying scale of design.

Foul Drainage Including Sewage Treatment Plant Installations

At Ayling Groundworks we take pride in our ability to carry out waste water pipe and sewage treatment plant installations with the up most precision. We are used to working alongside building control to provide reliable Foul water management.

Rainwater Drainage Including Land Drainage Installations

We have carried out numerous rain and surface water drainage projects, always tailoring the specification to meet the needs of the ground conditions. These include ditching, French drains, soakaways, rainwater harvesting tanks and even permanent pumping solutions.

Service Installations

Our team has a wide range of experience installing all manner of underground services these include water, gas, electric, geo thermal and communications.

External Landscaping Works

Over the years we have had vast amounts of experience shaping and remodelling landscapes.

Equine Works Including Sand Schools, Stable Bases & Lunge Rings

Due to being based in the southern county’s we have carried out a lot of work on polo and race horse studs so we understand the demand for perfection when it comes to all equestrian needs.

Traditional Strip Foundations

This approach is favoured when ground conditions are good.  A trench is excavated and filled with concrete providing a sound foundation for the rest of the structure to be built on. Depths and widths can vary but in most cases a depth of at least 1m and a width of 600mm wide is normally adequate.

Ayling Groundworks is a trusted and professional company with over 35 years experience within the building industry.
