Groundwork Contractors in Rochester
Ensuring Your Groundworks and Wider Construction Project Runs Smoothly

If you’re planning a construction project of any size in Rochester, one of the first tasks you face is drawing up a budget and timescale. Then you must take the necessary steps to ensure your job reaches completion without exceeding either. Whether you’re building a new home from scratch, extending an existing property or developing multiple houses, your work will involve multiple phases.

But what makes us such a safe pair of hands? Primarily, it’s our experience – and the expertise that comes with it. We have a proud trading history stretching back to our establishment in 1988. In addition, our team shares over 35 years of industry experience.

We have completed projects of every type, size and complexity multiple times. We have encountered, and resolved, the full spectrum of trade-related issues.


Keeping Your Groundworks and Wider Project on Track

Site Clearance

Before our groundwork contractors and foundation installers can get to work at your Rochester site, you must first have it cleared. The nature of your site clearance will depend entirely on how you currently use the land and what kind of work you want to carry out.

P Lunn Plant Hire clears domestic or commercial sites of any type or size. With an extensive of plant and heavy machinery options to work with, we ensure this essential first step reaches completion without delay or disruption.

Plant Hire

Because we supply our own plant and heavy machinery, we aren’t reliant on third parties for delivery. This is another important aspect in our affective groundwork management. We are responsible for maintaining and allocating our own assets, so we’re not exposed to the mistakes or mismanagement of other companies.

When you hire machinery from us, we deliver it to your site on the agreed date. This allows us to start groundworks, lay concrete bases or begin any other construction operations on time as planned.

Our equipment and machinery hire options include:

All Groundworks

As groundwork contractors and foundation installers, our team covers a full range of services. It’s important to note that your project will require a bespoke solution tailored not just to the structure you want to build, but also the soil type at your Rochester site.

For example, the groundworks and foundations for a patio or driveway are markedly different from those supporting a house extension or new build.

As such, you must ensure that your chosen contractor has a proven track record in delivering the kind of results you need. Your project represents a sizeable investment. Cutting corners or making uninformed decisions during construction will come back to haunt you in the form of structural and performance issues.


Having completed your groundworks, P Lunn Plant Hire also provides certain services for the following phase. For work like sheds, garden buildings, extensions and new builds, we lay concrete bases which provide a flat, sturdy platform.

If you’re completing a landscaping job in or around Rochester, we can supply and install your driveway, patio or paving. From block paving to Indian Sandstone, and concrete to gravel, we work with an array of popular materials to create a stunning finish.
