“Really impressed with Ben and his team from when we first met Ben when he came to quote right through to completion of works. A very hard working team even in the wet and windy weather. We were kept up to date with progress throughout the week. We found Jack and the guys to be very polite, punctual and tidy. We would use them again without hesitation and would recommend them to anyone.”

“Would highly recommend BVMH. They turned up on time and when they said they would. Were hard working, tidy and pleasant to deal with and kept us informed throughout the week with what they were doing. We were so impressed we asked them to supply and fit new gates which again were done with expertise.”

Nothing was too much trouble, everything was started on time and finished before schedule, If you are looking for an honest, polite and reliable ground works company with no hidden costs then I would highly recommend BVMH.”

New patio / pathway laid.
“Extremely pleased with our new patio - the quality of workmanship and finish is excellent. Ben and his team worked non stop and they were courteous and tidy. We have previously used BVMH for ground works for our extension, but this was the first time for paving, and we have not been disappointed! Can highly recommend.”

Ben and his team completed the concrete foundations for a 25 square meter side and rear single-story extension. Blockwork up to DC level, laid all drainage for new kitchen and utility areas, inspection chamber and rodding points. Installed a 6-crate soakaway and completed the block and beam oversite ready for brickwork.
“I can honestly say that Ben and his team work constantly and without fuss. Their work is completed to a high standard and on time. Ben explains everything to you before he starts, and throughout the construction I felt confident to leave him and his team to get on with their work. Ben and his team arrive on time and stay until they finish their work target for the day. They are all polite and friendly guys and extremely hard working. I cannot recommend this company highly enough. They are a credit to their profession.”

Moving main drain and foundations for side and rear extension.
“Very impressed with Ben and his team from his initial visit to quote right through to completion of works. A very hard working team even in very hot weather. We were kept updated with progress throughout and they completed the works ahead of schedule despite changes having to be made part way through. We found all of Bens team to be very polite and accommodating throughout the works - helped along with some coffee and cakes! We would use them again without hesitation and would be recommend them to anyone.”
Customer in Worthing - 9 July 2018
Demolition, foundation and floor slab for new extension.
“Of all the quotes received, Ben was clearly the most switch on contractor and is also competitive and a great communicator. He said it would take two weeks but completed the work in 6 days (weather helped I am sure). I really I cannot find fault with the work and his team. We asked for additional drainage works which were completely quickly and with liaison with the building control officer, and the garden was left far tidier then I was expecting despite the heavy machinery used. I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
Customer in Horsham - 25 June 2018

Customer in Littlehampton - 14 June 2018
“Two new soakaways and pipwork completed in just one day, we made changes on the day which Ben was able to deal with, the team worked extremely hard throughout the day and were very friendly and polite. We will use again and recommend to others.”

BVMH Groundworks was established in 2004 by Mr Benjamin Humphries. To this day, our founder continues to own, run and drive the business forward. In fact, he undertakes all initial home and site visits himself. Our company continues to thrive by adhering to the simple principles of providing services of the highest quality at the agreed price and to set deadlines.
Quite simply, we pride ourselves on being a company of our word. If our efficient, highly professional team says we will do something, we do it.
From Brighton to Chichester, and from Haywards Heath to Horsham, our previous projects line the streets throughout Sussex and the surrounding areas. Whether it’s building a new front door step at a residential home, installing an access ramp at a business property or carrying out foundation installations for a public sector development, BVMH Groundworks takes pride in continuing to improve our local communities.
The original focus of our company was the building and construction industry, where we mastered complex tasks such as foundation installations, property extensions, drainage preparation and much more. Over time, however, we branched out into residential landscaping, excelling in projects like laying patios and new driveways. This has left us perfectly placed to meet the requirements of any domestic or commercial groundworks project, no matter how unique or challenging the demands may be.
Whether as groundwork contractors or paving contractors, we utilise cutting edge technology and equipment to provide an unrivalled, Trading Standards-approved service. But don’t simply take our word for it! We proudly hold membership with Checkatrade, allowing our prospective customers the opportunity to read honest feedback and reviews about us.
