Qualified Drainage & Groundwork Contractors in Guildford, Cobham & Surrey | Lucas Groundworks Ltd

Welcome to the website of Lucas Groundworks Ltd. Based in Godalming, we serve as the Surrey area’s trusted groundwork and drainage contractors. With a broad client range that includes homeowners in Cobham and Claygate, through to commercial developers in Haslemere and Guildford – we pride ourselves on offering a highly professional service at competitive prices.


We’ve been in business for just shy of two decades, and over this period of time have built a fantastic reputation for quality workmanship. Our 9 employees have up to 35 years’ experience in the industry, and are fully trained, holding CSCS qualifications, digger certificates and proficiency in first aid. We also hold a £10m public liability insurance policy, for your peace of mind.


Unlike many groundwork contractors who lease their machinery, we have our own – including all the plant that’s essential for larger foundation installations and the construction of reinforced basements. We take on projects of all sizes, however – offering a comprehensive array of services that cover all aspects of groundworks and drainage.


For more information about the services we’ve introduced below, please browse our website or call us on 01483 861 187. Our secretary will be on hand to answer all calls and emails quickly, ensuring you have a positive customer service experience from first contact, to when our work is complete. We can provide an extensive list of references on request, from domestic, commercial and industrial clients alike.

Our Services


Groundworks – As our name suggests, we deliver all forms of groundworks to an exceptional standard. This includes foundation installation and oversites, preliminary work on extensions, structural reinforcement, site clearance, DPC bulk excavations and the building of roads, paths and driveways. Whether you’re a domestic client working on a self-build project, or a professional development company in need of groundworks specialists, we have you covered.


Reinforced Basements – One area on which our groundwork contractors specialise, is the design and construction of reinforced basements. These are made from reinforced concrete, and feature cavity filled block work and structural steelwork which provides exceptional durability. Our reinforced basements can be built using a specialist waterproof additive, providing an extra level of water resistance. We use a PERI shuttering system to ensure that the installation of reinforced basements is as quick and unobtrusive as possible. This is delivered entirely in-house; we don’t need to bring in external shuttering companies as many other groundwork contactors do.


Drainage – We’re also qualified drainage contractors fully trained and equipped to handle all aspects of underground drainage. This includes trench excavation, drain relaying, the installation and repair of drainage systems, pumping station installation, soakway construction and all other aspects of domestic and industrial drainage. Note that we offer emergency drainage services to nearby clients throughout Surrey, including in Claygate, Cobham, Haslemere and Guildford.


Finishings – Lucas Groundworks Ltd also supplies and installs quality block paving, concrete slabs, natural stone and brickwork for any type of finishing you can think of. We also can apply asphalt and install bespoke kerbs that will help you improve the external aesthetic of a property.
