“One-stop shop”

This best describes our approach whereby we can if required take care of the complete package for the client. This may include identifying and/or acquiring ground, handling design and planning processes, negotiating with sub-contractors, neighbours etc and means the client only has to deal with Alan Gow himself as the personal contact within the company.

Contract Size

Alan Gow Groundworks is well able to handle a variety of contracts, ranging from 1-day employee hire to monthly machine hire, all at extremely competitive rates, and contracts up to 100k have been completed.

Plant and Equipment

Seven years on, the company can deploy a full range of modern heavy and light plant, including tracked excavators from 1- 13 tonnes, forward tipping dumpers from 1-6 tonnes, walk-behind and sit-on vibrating rollers, walk-behind and sit-on screed power floats, JCB Loadall and JCB3CX, and road roller. Externally-calibrated site measuring and levelling equipment are standard tools of our trade. Our small yet comprehensive transport fleet comprises vans, tippers, trailers and pickups and has serviced operations over a wide geographical area. All Alan Gow Groundworks plant and vehicles are, wherever possible, serviced locally, either by local engineers or at the company’s own service yard.
