YPP Groundworks is a family owned and run business, established by Managing Director Tom Armitage in 2012.  Having worked in the construction industry for almost 20 years, Tom has a wealth of experience in groundworks and civil engineering, including overseeing 100+ housing developments. 

Having initially focussed the business on domestic paving and groundworks projects, 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 four members of Tom’s family currently work for the company, either on site or in our Otley based office.  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.
