Montier Building Services is first and foremost a groundworks company; this service is our staple and the basis for the wealth of knowledge and experience we have acquired over the last 15 years into all aspects of building and landscaping.

But what exactly is ‘groundworks’ we hear you ask? After demolition, it’s the first stage of any construction project and includes a wide range of aspects such as site clearance, ground investigation and preparation, substructure, underpinning and ground stabilisation, drainage and utilities provision, and the installation of footings and foundations to name but a few.

Our aim is to deliver these services to your project to the highest of standards, using only the best tradesmen and materials, at a competitive rate and within great timescales.
