To date, projects completed have included initial site re-mediation, earthworks, site infrastructure, plot preparation up to DPC as well as hard and soft landscaping.
Our commercial contracts have been both grand in scale and complex in character. Our team has worked on distribution centres, factories, warehousing as well as hotels and offices developments. Often working to tight timescales and adapting to changing requirements, the Moortown Group has built a reputation for providing effective and efficient solutions within the commercial sector.
The Moortown Group has demonstrated its capabilities in this expanding sector by providing civil engineering services to some of the UK’s largest blue-chip companies. The company has experience of both new-build and upgrade projects with both often demanding an onsite presence 24 hours, seven days a week. Meeting high expectations and fixed deadlines have been key to securing repeat contracts in a competitive field.

We are able to take on projects from the design stage to completion in the following areas: sub-station construction, fuel storage facilities, waste recycling centres and biomass plants.
Our reputation for reliability and quality work has made us the go to company for a wide range of infrastructure solutions. Whether it’s bridges, pipelines, road networks, ports, railways or aqueducts, our integrated approach, coupled with our extensive plant fleet and skilled team of professionals, means we can tackle even the most complex projects.
We have undertaken many projects within this sector, ranging from transforming essential public services to providing key defence infrastructure in locations across the country. This experience means we understand the complexities surrounding the management and delivery of major defence projects and are able to successfully complete projects while adhering to the required standards at all times.
