Underpinning – Underpinning involves reinforcing or extending existing building foundations, typically in cases where they are deemed inadequate, damaged, or in need of strengthening due to subsidence or other structural issues. This process is crucial for maintaining the structural integrity and stability of buildings, ensuring their longevity and safety for occupants.

Common signs you might be in need of this form of groundworks include cracks in walls or uneven floors. By carefully excavating beneath the existing building foundations and strategically placing new supports or reinforcing materials, underpinning effectively redistributes the building's weight and stabilizes it on a more secure footing.

Block & Beam Works – This form of groundworks entails the installation of precast concrete blocks and beams to create a solid and durable flooring system for various types of buildings and structures. This method offers several advantages, including rapid installation, high load-bearing capacity, and compatibility with different ground conditions.

We’re most commonly tasked with block & beam works on Cranleigh, Horsham, Midhurst, Petworth and Pulborough projects where speed, efficiency, and structural integrity are all equally paramount. By utilising standardised precast components, this approach minimises on-site construction time and reduces labour costs while ensuring consistent quality and performance.

Roadways – This category of groundworks encompasses the construction and surfacing of roads, pathways, driveways, and other vehicular and pedestrian routes. Our team plays a vital role in the planning, design, and implementation of roadway projects in and around Cranleigh, Horsham, Midhurst, Petworth and Pulborough, handling everything from site preparation and earthworks, to pavement installation and finishing.

Whether it's a new road development, a roadway extension, or the rehabilitation of existing surfaces, our groundworks professionals will employ a range of techniques and materials to create durable and resilient infrastructure. Factors we’ll consider include traffic flow, drainage, subgrade stability, and environmental impact to ensure optimal performance and longevity.

Retaining Walls – Retaining walls are essential structures designed to hold back soil and prevent erosion, typically used in landscaping and civil engineering projects where changes in ground elevation pose stability challenges. Our groundworks team is frequently called upon to construct retaining walls on residential, commercial, and infrastructural developments around Cranleigh, Horsham, Midhurst, Petworth and Pulborough, creating level terraces, protecting structures from hazards, and enhancing aesthetic appeal.

These walls can be built using various materials, including concrete, masonry and timber, depending on the site conditions, design requirements, and budget constraints. Like all aspects of groundworks, retaining wall construction involves careful planning, site preparation, and engineering analysis to ensure proper drainage, soil reinforcement, and structural stability.

Soakaways – These are underground structures designed to manage surface water runoff by promoting infiltration into the soil, thereby reducing the risk of flooding and soil erosion. CJ Groundworks is often tasked with installing soakaway systems in all locations surrounding Cranleigh, Horsham, Midhurst, Petworth and Pulborough, to mitigate the adverse effects of stormwater runoff on properties and the environment.

These systems typically consist of perforated pipes or chambers surrounded by aggregate or permeable materials, allowing rainwater to infiltrate into the ground gradually. Soakaways are strategically located to capture and disperse runoff from roofs, driveways, and other impermeable surfaces, preventing waterlogging and surface runoff pollution.

Drainage Fields – Drainage fields are subsurface systems designed to disperse treated wastewater from septic tanks or sewage treatment plants into the surrounding soil for natural filtration and purification. As both a groundworks and dedicated drainage company, we specialise in the design, installation, and maintenance of drainage fields to ensure efficient and environmentally sound disposal of domestic and industrial wastewater.

Drainage fields are integral components of decentralised wastewater management systems, providing a cost-effective and sustainable solution for on-site sewage treatment and disposal in rural and suburban areas. Part of the task sees our experts conduct soil testing, hydraulic analysis, and regulatory compliance assessments to design drainage fields that meet performance standards and environmental regulations.
