About our clients

We’ve been working with many of our clients for years, and they come back to us again and again for repeat projects.

Our clients are happy to recommend us, which is why the rest of our business comes from word of mouth.

We have a professional approach, so we are happy to provide Project Management, Method Statements and Risk Assessments if you need them.

Everyone is CPCS and CSCS accredited, and we are both Streetworks Supervisory and Operative Status qualified.

Some of our team are qualified to work in combined spaces and health and safety is important to us, so we have qualified First Aiders on the team.

Company history

In 2005 he took on a partner and the company became Birch and Lewis, but it didn’t work out and the partner left the company in 2009.

Back in control of the company in 2009, it traded as Lewis Groundworks Ltd, but in 2013 Nigel decided he’d prefer to be a sole trader again, trading as Nigel Lewis Construction and Plant Hire.
