Our subdivision services projects

Groundworks undertook an extensive range of works for this 94-unit residential development in Petone. We identified potential challenges and found solutions for these early in the project.
We faced a series of challenges to be overcome during our work on this subdivision project in the hills north of Wellington. These included delays in the supply chain and the wettest winter on record.
Our work on this subdivision adjacent to the Westview development involved similar challenges. We provided a full range of civil contracting services, including earthmoving, water mains, and roading.
