Other Services

At Tc & Co our staff have a wide range of skills, qualifications and experience enabling us to take ownership of multiple elements of a development or project and making us the main point of call contractor in the South West.

Road Preparation and 278 Works

Without roads the UK comes to a halt, but our ground workers help to connect new homes to their wider geographical location. From earthworks to give your road the solid foundation it needs, drains and sewers to manage surface water, to the surfacing and paving.


The initial step in any new development or project is the earthworks which prepares the ground for excavation. This is carried out by stripping away the topsoil, clearing the site of any vegetation, removing excess earth (muckaway) and cutting and filling so the works can then begin.

Sewers & Drainage

As part of our groundwork infrastructure, we create the trenches for these essential services, connecting homes to mainland sewers and ensuring there are provisions for fresh running water. Whether were upgrading old services or installing new ones.

Beam & Block

A very popular alternative to traditional suspended flooring as it can be constructed quickly and inexpensively using ready-made materials. The drying time is eliminated so provides a stable flooring that can be instantly insulated, walked and built on.
