Ground Developments Ltd

Our Company

We are a UK leading specialist ground engineering contractor, who offer a range of complementary services, including earthworks and a range of ground improvement and piling techniques.

Our established and experienced team offers cost-effective ground engineering solutions to ready sites for new development and infrastructure.

Our philosophy to embrace the latest technology demonstrates our commitment to our clients to deliver the best value engineered solution for their project which is delivered safely, on time, on budget and to the highest quality.

Solution engineering

GDL is regularly approached by contractors and designers to review and propose complete engineering solutions for difficult development sites. We have the capability to combine a range of ground improvement and piling techniques to offer clients the most appropriate and cost-effective solution.

Issues in the ground are normally perceived as being one of the higher risks associated with development. We embrace partnership working and often engage early in the development process.  As a result we can, in certain circumstances, undertake contracts on a fixed price basis which offers clients cost certainty when planning their budget.

Recent project highlights

  • Our ground improvement solution and installation for Dong Energy at The Walney Onshore Substation in Lancaster is a showcase for our deep soil mixing technique. A programme of significant works for Dong Energy also included the design and installation of a piled secant retaining wall.
  • Our expertise in bulk excavation and soil stabilisation works has paved the way for the creation of the new Macallan Distillery, Elgin.
  • We carried out remediation of contaminated land for Scottish Water in Cowdenbeath.
  • A combination of our enabling earthworks and soil stabilisation has created the perfect platform for a new residential development in Glasgow.
