Earthworks


Our commercial earthworks division covers all aspects of minor and major earthworks. Our highly skilled team are both experienced and well qualified and have worked on a wide variety of projects in a variety of sectors.  Complex projects are a particular specialty as the Company has a large skilled in-house workforce and modern plant fleet. We also have our own in-house engineering service, which means that we can offer surveys, full setting out from electronic formats and an as-built drawing service.

• 600m of drainage in both clayware and concrete pipe was used to reroute the existing public sewer system
• Tree planting

The company relishes the opportunity to work on both brown and green field sites where by a new highway can be constructed from muck shift to drainage to kerbing and final installation of the surface course. Dowhigh have accumulated an efficient plant department boasting a range of equipment including:
