Tidy, Efficient & Professional

"I hired Bird dig the foundations for a single-story rear extension and patio to include relocating drains. When the team arrived at my home the first thing they unloaded from their truck was a broom. Whenever deliveries arrived or soil was removed, they swept the street. My neighbours were quick to comment on how tidy and efficient they were. Their no-nonsense, professional attitude transferred to the work they carried out too. When decisions needed to be made, their experience and confidence made it easy for me to either exercise choice or leave them to make the right judgement. They coordinated deliveries without my involvement and manoeuvred excavated soil around the restricted site efficiently to enable work to continue at pace. We provided them access to a downstairs toilet, not that you’d have known because they were diligent about making sure they didn’t bring any dirt from the outside in. The team were pleasant to have around, they completed the work exactly as described and on budget. I highly recommend them."

Pleasure to work with

I had the Bird team to demolish a barn and stables prior to commencing a new build barn. Their price was very attractive in comparison to other companies, but in no way did this reflect on their superb standard of work. It could not have been improved on. The team returned to site to do ground work and again it was quick, professional and perfect. Above all they are lovely people who genuinely care about their clients and a pleasure to work with...I would not hesitate to recommend them

A professional, friendly groundwork company

We first became acquainted with Bird Groundworks and Demolition Ltd in 2011 when they were appointed by our project manager to carry out groundworks for a substantial house re-modelling project spanning some 8,000 square feet. We were impressed with the work they did for us and with the manner in which they conducted themselves on site, always polite and courteous and good humoured. Since this time we have used Bird Groundworks and Demolition to do all manner of additional work for us relating to the landscaping we have carried out on the 4.5 acres of garden that surround the house; more groundworks, insertion of drainage systems, laying Indian Sandstone terraces and paths and building vegetable beds and a curved feature retaining wall out of oak.They have finished a drive and a large utility area in Crushed Kentish Ragstone. They have also laid lawns and done brickwork for us, all of which being completed to a very professional and pleasing standard. We are more than happy with the work Bird Groundworks and Demolition Ltd has done for us and we value our relationship with this professional, friendly company. We have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.
