Our history 2019-03-29T11:28:36+00:00


“We’ve built the business based on our knowledge and reputation.   This means we can bring 27 years of experience to your project, alongside a genuine passion for a quality job in the ground.” Andy Bowyer, Director of Operations

We hope you enjoy this small selection of pictures from our Griffiths Groundworks photo album and that they give you a sense of our history and passion for groundwork.   You can read more about what we believe in and our story, below.

We are a family firm at heart and firmly believe this shows through in our approach to projects.

We’re proud to have grown enormously since 1989.  This has been based on our reputation, a passion for high quality delivery and a personal approach.

So, whether you are an experienced contractor, a developer, a self-builder or a homeowner, you will be dealing with a firm that really cares about your project.

As you’ll see from our photo album, we truly love working in the ground.  In fact, our founder, Mike Griffiths, sold the family car to buy his first excavator when the family groundwork business began.

Claire, Sammi, Chris and Joe are all Griffiths family members within the business and, as Directors, we’ve known each other since we were at high school.  And just look at those Griffiths children on toy ‘diggers’!

We aim to bring our passion, alongside our expert knowledge of groundwork, to every project we work on.   So, when you work with us, we bring 27 years of experience with us.   We reckon we’ve built the foundations for over 3000 houses and well over 100 miles of road and drainage systems.  And that doesn’t include the experience we have from our 20-strong directly employed team.

If you come across an unforeseen problem in the ground, the chances are we’ve seen it (and solved it) before.  If you have to make changes on site, we will do everything can to help you come up with a practical solution.

And, after 27 years, it goes without saying that high standards of Health and Safety are a given. (including having a clean and tidy site!)

We hope you enjoy taking a look at our pictures.  We’d love your project to be added to our album.
