Munster completed a new basement shell for me, under my existing house, extending out under my garden.
2,200 sq feet in total. The job consisted of underpinning and forming the retaining walls. Putting in a new concrete slab, and digging out underneath my garden. The dig out under the garden was 6 metres by 10 metres.
The complete basement shell was completed and the block and beam was done.
I was very pleased with George and his team, they worked extra hard and brought the project in on time and budget.
George and his team also spent two days at the end cleaning up the site, leaving it looking great.
I can not wait to work with George and his team again in a few weeks, when they come back to do the waterproofing for me.
"I have been in property development since 2005 but all my projects have only involved refurbishments and not construction. This project was my first that actually involved the construction of a 25-meter side and rear extension, so as you can imagine it was a bit daunting. The foundation stage is the most vital part of any development endeavor so it was key to find the right specialists for my project. After speaking to many overpriced "we can do anything" type of tradesmen I was thankful to be recommended Munster Groundwork's. I generally can't speak highly enough of the service I received from this company. George and his team were very clear, polite, professional, informative, and pleasant at all stages of the process. They came along and quoted very fairly in comparison to all the other tradesmen and only wanted to work on what they specialized in. In 1 week Munster Groundwork's team dug a 1 meter deep by 600 mm wide by 25 meters long foundations, filled and leveled the concrete, carefully revealed all the old waste and rainwater pipes, replaced all the necessary new underground drainage and placed 4 new manholes. I would fully recommend George and his team mainly because of my comments above but also because they are the most punctual human beings that I have ever come across and they refused to leave the job until I was fully satisfied and that takes some doing. I am genuinely looking for new things to call them back in for. They have set the bar very high."

So friendly and personable! Apart from their good work, they have great interpersonal skills. I am so pleased with Munster G and B. They have the ability to be unique and give quality results. They explain every step and use the best material in their work. They excavated under my house and built a new basement. Giving my family the extra room we needed.
Munster Groundwork's completed the digging for my new basement for a two story extension to be built on top. Very pleased with George and his team of men. They worked really hard and fast and completed it before expected.
I decided to go with Munster after I saw their website on google.
I am so glad that I did.
They were a great team of lads to work with, George was so helpful.
They worked to time scale even though the drawings changed, more than once.
They completed on time and within budget.
They left the site nice and clean afterward.
I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a basement to be added to their house.
These folks have a great taste of professionalism. Their skills are top notch and are well organised. This is a basement construction company in London that I always enjoy working with. They never make changes, they always follow the drawings to detail.
A 55 thousand sq. foot building burnt down, we were left with the task of rebuilding it and after going through many companies we chose Making Space Below Ground ltd as being a large company ourselves we had to pick the correct company.
We have dealt with many companies over the years and know how important it is to pick the right one.
We chose George and his team of guys to carry out the works, after dealing with them for the last two years on other projects we had built up a great working relationship with them.
They completed the project on time and went above and beyond doing extra work that was needed but not in the original quote.
The price was great, and George could have added on a lot more money for the extra work that his team completed, but they didn’t.
I would highly recommend Munster Groundworks and Basements , and will be using them again on other projects that I have.

George and his team dug out my foundations in Uxbridge. All muck was removed from the site via grabs. They used C40 concrete which was pumped in using a concrete pump. I was very pleased with the way they removed the muck and didn't sit dirty. They finished on time and left the foundations perfect.
Munster groundwork and basements did the underpinning to the side of my house. They gave me a quote and stuck to it. They were on time and they left the site clean. I will use them again in a few weeks to do the new concrete slab in my basement. Thanks guys. Job well done.
I got Munster to complete the whole of my house underpinning. 70 metres in total dug down to 2.5 metres.
The workmen attended site on Time every day even In the pouring rain. They cleared away the site when they had completed the underpinning. I am very happy with how the project ran nice and smoothly. George the owner attended the site a couple of times a week to make sure all was going well.
I'm very pleased. Thank George and your team.

I hired George to do my garden project. They excavated the ground and put in retaining walls which they filled with steel and concrete. They removed my man hole and replaced it with a new drainage system and manhole.
They followed the plans and They were very pleasant on site and dealt with any changes to the drawings with no problem at all, and there were quite a few changes, nothing was ever too much for them and George went out of his way to accommodate the changes. I am very pleased with what they have done and will be using them again on my upcoming projects. Thank you to all the guys that worked on site you were all brill.
Excellent experience from Munster. They completed the basement dig out for me and left me with a completed basement shell. The work was completed on time and for the quote stated. I'm very pleased. Thanks George and your team of men.
George came and took a look at my basement after I called them looking for waterproofing. I wasn't sure what was best to be done. George advised me on the best method and gave me a written quote. I was pleased with how he described what he intended to do. I gave George the job and was glad I did. George and his team did a brilliant job. His men on site were very polite and kept the site tidy every evening.
I now have a fully waterproofed basement and am very pleased with the outcome.
