Groundworker level 2

What is a Business Administrator?

A groundworker is a construction professional who prepares areas in readiness for, during and after construction has taken place. Groundworkers are usually the first trade on any given site and the last to leave, creating the landscaping (the good bit). They carry out a host of operations to enable super-structure construction to commence. These tasks would include the initial site strip, setting out of foundations, excavating the foundations, concreting and drainage along with sub-structure to roads and such like.
