We have built an enviable reputation in the local area through hard work, professionalism and our commitment to the job at hand.  Our aim is to further enhance our reputation, as we continue to invest in our workforce; ensuring a higher level of service for our clients and safer working environments for our colleagues.

Family Run Business

YPP Groundworks is a family owned and run business, established by Managing Director Tom Armitage in 2012. 

Having initially focussed the business on domestic work, Tom soon began tendering for and winning commercial scale projects.  We now employ a full time Contracts Manager, Quantity Surveyor, Project Manager, have full admin support, working alongside a diverse and experienced team of groundworkers and pavers.   

Family values are at the core of YPP Groundworks and fix members of Tom’s family are currently working for the company.  Beyond Tom’s family members, there is a strong bond running throughout the workforce, which has been forged through many years working together and friendships away from the site.

We are very proud of our staff retention record and believe that a long serving workforce is the best way to ensure that our high standards are maintained.

Our Ethos

We are firm believers in working closely with our clients throughout the installation programme to ensure that even the most complex projects are completed within agreed timescales, on budget and safely.

The quality of workmanship, flexibility and attention to detail is frequently remarked upon and our approach onsite means that we have an excellent record of repeat custom – something of which we are extremely proud.

Despite the relatively young age of the YPP Groundworks, we have built an enviable portfolio of past projects and worked with many of the leading Principal Contractors throughout the United Kingdom, with our partners including:
