Nelson undertakes all types of earthworks, extending to full site clearance and remediation.

Drawing on the deep resources of Nelson’s plant and haulage experience we undertake all types of earthworks on a contract basis, recycling materials on demand, or as part of an earthworks contract package.

Health & Safety

Health and safety is always a high priority and site specific risk assessments are prepared and submitted prior to any works being carried out. As a result our safety record is of an impeccable standard.

Muck Shifting

With a range of in-house plant we are more than equipped to undertake muck shifting contracts ranging from 100m3 to 300,000 m3. We can offer muck away services either on agreed measure or by the load, and with our own CPCS/CSCS Certified operators we have the capability to know how to offer clients the most cost-efficient solutions whilst working to tight deadlines and tight budgets.


We are able to undertake excavation contracts of all sizes, including archaeological digs and all forms of site investigation works. We realise that these particular projects require expertise and attention to detail. We supply all earthmoving equipment either on an hourly, daily or weekly basis and we boast some of the best CPCS/CSCS qualified plant operators in the South of England.

Site Remediation

Our earthworks service extends to full site clearance and remediation. We carry out full soil analysis and compile reports that advise clients on contamination levels. We provide fully licensed landfill sites as approved by the Environment Agency for end disposal. Our surveyors will advise on site investigation, soil sampling results and help clients obtain landfill tax exemption.
