“I would like to express my appreciation of the works recently carried out by your firm at the catholic church of our Christ the King at Perranporth. The job consisted of demolition of the existing concrete block walls and their replacement by heavy duty fencing. Various secondary tasks were involved, but not least being the disposal of the remains of the walls.
Right from the outset , it was clear that we found the right contractor, your response to my initial inquiry was most helpful, and your inspection of the site on the following day was much appreciated. You immediately grasped our requirements, and gave much helpful advice coupled with suggestions for the improvement of our ideas.
The work itself was both started and finished on time, and there were no hidden extras, all of which was gratifying. You made every effort to keep disruption of our church schedules to an absolute minimum. The members of your team were unfailing polite, cheerful and cooperative. In addition , I was impressed by the care taken to ensure both the safety of your men and of visitors to the church, together with the precautions for safeguarding traffic and pedestrians in the adjoining street (including those waiting near the church). When all works were completed you made every effort to ensure that the church grounds were restored to good order.
I am very grateful for all that you did for us. We shall have no hesitation in consulting you in the future, shall the need arise. Needless to say, I shall recommend your firm most heartily to anyone who is considering works of construction and maintenance.”
Rev B S (Perranporth)
“Our fence that was constructed by Active Groundworks was superb! The work was completed in two days, there was no mess , no fuss and all the rubbish was taken away. In fact we were so impressed with the work that we had Active Groundworks back to put in our driveway, we could safely recommend him to anyone.”

Mr and Mrs H (Truro)
“Active Groundworks repaired our retaining wall that collapsed, they designed and built our new stronger wall, we were so pleased that we had them back again to build a fence and base for our garden room. Their service was fantastic and shared our vision of what we wanted. I would recommend to anyone.”
Mr P and Miss A (Truro)
“My wife and I moved to Cornwall into a run-down 1930s house. We decided to demolish it and build a German ‘eco house’ but this required us to arrange for demolition and groundworks.
The original groundworkers that had been recommended by our architects pulled out at the last moment so we looked around locally and Jason responded immediately with a site visit followed by a prompt and competitive quotation.
Active Groundworks were able to complete the works well in time for the arrival of our new house despite some pretty awful weather! They have also been very helpful with including services to the house and unexpected complications. We have no hesitation in recommending Active Groundworks to anyone requiring these services.”
Mr & Mrs Goodman (Trevone)
“Thank you for doing such a great job of flail mowing my fields. It has been very refreshing to find a company who does exactly what was required, ahead of schedule and for less than the estimated cost. I will be sure to use and recommend your company in the future.”
Brian Best (Crofthandy)
“Active Groundworks has provided a range of services during our new build project in Mawgan Porth, including site clearance, preparation of foundations, connection of utilities, drainage and hard landscaping.
Their director, Jason Hattam, is clearly very experienced and expert in these areas, and also communicates well with us and our building contractor, such that we have always had confidence that work will be carried out accurately and on time, and on no occasion has this confidence been let down.
Where unexpected issues have arisen or extra requests have been made by ourselves or the building contractor, these have been dealt with quickly and efficiently. Overall, we have found Active Groundworks to be a thoroughly professional and reliable contractor who we would recommend without hesitation.”
Sam Dibb (Mawgan Porth)
“Jason and his team at Active Groundworks undertook an extensive job for our business when we moved premises, they dealt with all of the drainage requirements, surfacing of a large new car park, block paving of our extensive car sales forecourt and installation of our perimeter fencing and security barriers.
Jason is extremely hard working, polite and professional, nothing is too much trouble. We felt in safe and capable hands with Active Groundworks and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
