Mr & Mrs Betts of Sandiway:

"Brian was involved throughout the duration of our year long self-build project and his skills and expertise were invaluable. Brian was in charge of several integral aspects of the project including demolition and site clearance; setting out, digging and laying of foundations; on-site drainage; laying driveways and patios; and laying internal limestone floors.

Quite apart from his practical prowess, Brian is extremely reliable, hard-working and price-competitive. Nothing was too much trouble and if problems arose, Brian was always keen to find a solution. He is friendly, punctual and trustworthy. Brian's high standards are reflected throughout our lovely home and we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to others".


Mr & Mrs Jones of Bunbury:


"Brian and his team behaved with the utmost professionalism from our initial enquiry, through to quoting and the project itself - a block paved driveway.  They were punctual, reliable and gave a very competitive price.  The work was carried out with the minimum of fuss, communication was excellent and the job completed quickly to a very high standard.  Brian advised us well on our choice of blocks for the driveway and it still looks fantastic after 2 years!"


Mrs Devereaux of Goostrey:


"Brian and his team have worked on several different projects with us. This has varied from hard landscaping, to digging foundations, forming reinforced concrete slabs and all aspects of drainage.

Brian's work is always completed to the highest standard. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, honest and great to have on site.

We would have no hesitation recommending the company to anyone requiring any type of groundworks".


Ms Albinsons of Kingsley:


"Brian, just wanted to say a massive thank you for the work you recently undertook for me at Meeting House Cottage.  I'm absolutely thrilled with the end result and it looks even better than I'd ever imagined!  Having spent months worrying about so many aspects of what I'd thought was a complex design.  It was so comforting to have someone who instictively knew the look I wanted to create.  Added to this you were extremely accomodating, punctual, professional and price competitive.  I now realise why my Aunt and Cousin (who recommended you to me) were so adamant they'd not use anyone else...I now feel exactly the same.  Thank you".


Mr Lavender of Antrobus:


"BK Elson Groundworks Ltd were on site throughout our three year long self-build project.  They were responsible for all groundwork detail including setting out, digging and laying of foundations, cable trenches, water pipes, on-site drainage, setting out the driveways and laying the patios.  Installation of the ground source loop and extremely intricate operation of restoring an existing cellar, which is now used as a habitable space.  This included the sealing of an underground spring and re-routing of the springs outflow / laying a new slab / ensuring the integrity of the cellar walls and much problem solving for this very technical and difficult aspect of the build.

I cannot recall an instant when they did not appear on site as scheduled (whatever the weather) and all members of their staff were extremely pleasant, helpful and hardworking (so much so, we named two of our dogs after them!)

The standard of their work has been to the highest quality and I would recommend Brian's company to anybody".


Mr & Mrs Pearson of Brown Knowl:


"We have just had a Tricel waste water treatment plant installed by BK Elson Groundworks Ltd.

Given that we had to do this in a tight space in our front garden and we needed it done and all reinstated within 7 days, we thought it would be a bit of an ask.

Monday morning start.

Finished by Wednesday afternoon.

Tidied up and completely off site by Thursday lunch time.

We were impressed by the whole operation.  The site was kept tidy at all times.  Our front drive was in fact cleaner when the lads left than it had been before they started.  There was just no hassle or mither.

Our verdict; 5 star operation.

We wholeheartedly recommend this outfit and will use them again when the need arises".


Mr & Mrs Crane of Weaverham:


"Brian was one of a number of companies we asked to quote for our work.  It was evident on that meeting that Brian was very knowledgeable, especially about the type and siting requirements for our sewage treatment plant.  The work was carried out by Brian and his son Jack, who arrived on site early every day and worked a full day.  They liaised with the other trades and the work progressed without a hitch.  We were delighted with the price, the standard of work and their work ethic, and we have no hesitation in recommending Brian and Jack".


Mr Hewitt of Sandiway:


"Just wanted to say thanks for your work this week on our client car park - I'm really pleased with it all.  It's not just the end result I am pleased with; the way you worked on site was really appreciated.  The site was kept clean and clear during as well as after the works and you worked with our staff and clients to keep everyone happy! Thank you"

"For the staff car park - just wanted to thank you for the work.  I am really pleased with it - and as always the way you and your team have approached it".


Mr & Mrs Lawrence of Knutsford:


"Brian, we would like to thank you all for the works done at the farm.  We were very pleased with the consistent high standard of work, and prompt attention, and will be in touch again when we are ready to install the new septic tank, many thanks".


Mr Kenwright of Sandiway:


​"Brian, thanks to you and your guys.  They left the place spick and span which is much appreciated and a mark of a very professional outfit.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you".

Mr Coker of Cuddington

"I was very impressed with Brian and his company, BK Elson from start to finish.  He was very professional and responsive from the outset.  We needed a new drive laying which involved the removal of the existing tarmac drive, ground work and re-levelling.  He accurately priced up the job, provided a fixed price quotation, was easy to communicate with on logistics and requirements.  He agreed a week to do the work and stuck to it, completed the work with a day to spare to a very high standard, cleared up any mess and left us with a great new tarmac drive.  He then sent us the bill which was exactly what he had quoted for.  I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Brian or BK Elson Groundworks"

Mr & Mrs Betts of Willington:

“We are nearing completion of our family self-build home, which commenced with the demolition of our existing home in 2017.  B K Elson Groundworks have overseen the demolition through to site clearance and setting out as well as digging and laying foundations; liaising with the architect and structural engineer when necessary.

Attention to detail has been second to none, including all Health & Safety aspects, providing us with the support and confidence required to meet the complexities of building control and structural warranty.

The company’s expertise, with regard to land drainage and a new water treatment plant was invaluable, together with preparation for a ground source heating system.

As the family prepare to move back, we welcomed Brian and his team back on site to install a new driveway to highway regulations, preparation for retaining walls and terraces in readiness for landscaping; yet another example of the company’s capabilities.

Our self-build achievement would not have been so successful without the wide experience and knowledge of B K Elson Groundworks and their willingness to go the extra mile.

With them, you not only get what you pay for-you get much more!”

Mr & Mrs Baxter of Kingsley:

Making the decision to build our own house was easy compared to the frustrations we experienced in finding the various trades people to help with the work. We wanted to work with people that took pride in their work and cared as much about the finished results as we did. Working with BK Elson Groundworks we found that Brian and his team ensured the work was carried out efficiently and with meticulous attention to detail. In addition they kept the site tidy, took the time to explain what was being done and were happy to answer all of our questions. If I was to embark on a second self-build project (my wife says never again) I would have no hesitation in using BK Elson Groundworks and I would be happy to recommend their services to anyone.
