Griffin Groundworks: Navigating the Depths – Trench Excavation in Kent


We’re delighted to share the successful completion of a challenging yet essential project. Griffin Groundworks recently undertook a 170-meter trench excavation and reinstatement for a new water pipe at a local school in Kent. This demanding task required precision, experience, and unwavering dedication from our team, making it a project we are particularly proud of.

The Challenge of Trench Excavation

Trench excavation is no simple feat, especially when it involves a school environment with numerous utility services to navigate. Our experienced team, well-versed in tackling such complexities, executed this task with utmost care and professionalism. Safety is our top priority, and every measure was taken to ensure a secure working environment throughout the project.

A Big Thank You to Tom George Surfacing Ltd

Collaboration is at the heart of successful projects, and we are immensely grateful to our partners at Tom George Surfacing Ltd. Their dedication and hard work were evident as they worked diligently on a Sunday, even in challenging weather conditions, to lay the tarmac that would cover the freshly excavated trench. This partnership exemplifies the commitment to excellence that defines Griffin Groundworks.

Site Clearance: A Round-the-Clock Effort

Clearing the site after an excavation is paramount to safety and functionality. Our cargo team worked tirelessly to remove all signs and barriers, ensuring the site was hazard-free. Additionally, we understand the importance of a clean and organised environment for staff and pupils returning to the school. To achieve this, our team jet washed the site throughout the night, leaving no stone unturned to make sure it was pristine.

A Team Effort That Shines

At Griffin Groundworks, we know that the success of a project often hinges on the combined efforts of a dedicated team. The trench excavation and reinstatement at the school were no exception. It was through the hard work, expertise, and collaboration of everyone involved, from our experienced trench excavation team to our partners at Tom George Surfacing Ltd, that this project was completed safely and efficiently.

This achievement reinforces our commitment to excellence and our ability to deliver in challenging conditions. We are proud to have played a role in ensuring the continued safe operation of the school.
