Design and Engineering

At Base Construction we provide a hassle free service right from the start. If needed we can organise the soil tests, provide advice on economical foundation solutions as well as coordinate a full engineering design.




We offer a full comprehensive price which includes site preparation and earthworks. Base's experienced excavation team can complete earthworks from a small shed to large commercial warehouse. This speeds up the construction process and only dealing with one outfit eliminates the problem of discrepancies between contractors.
