Who We Are

YPP Groundworks is the specialist groundworks division of Yorkshire Pro Paving, founded by Tom Armitage in 2009. With almost 20 years’ experience in all aspects of civil engineering groundworks, Tom continues to be hands-on; ensuring that all projects are completed to his own high standards. We are a family run business, with 4 members of Tom’s family currently working for YPP Groundworks either onsite or in the office. 

What We Do

We offer civil engineering groundworks services for commercial projects that range from £5,000 to £1 million. Our scope of works includes drainage, foundations, concreting, externals, small roads, deep drainage and sewer connections. We have a proven track record in both the private and public sectors, with strong experience in the education sector.

Our Skills

Whilst we are proud to have an already experienced and highly skilled workforce, as a company we seek to improve our team with regular training. We recognise that through the development of individuals we create a stronger workforce; ensuring a higher level of service for a clients and a safe working environment for our colleagues. 

How We Work

We are firm believers in working closely with our clients throughout the installation programme in order 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 by our clients and we have an excellent record for repeat business. 

Company Ethos

Family values are at the core of YPP Groundworks. Although not every member of the team belongs to Tom’s family, 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.
