Excavations & Retaining Walls
We have developed a reputation for making the difficult easy at Strathclyde. If you are looking to build on the hill then you need a smart team on your side. That’s where we come in. Your project will have the best outcome if we get involved at the start to assist you through the planning and design stages. Poor design and planning on hill sites have massive cost implications. Helping clients troubleshoot and turning their dreams to reality is why we are in business.

Here at Strathclyde, we have a passion for preservation. We truly excel at managing logistical and structural challenges. Whether you are looking to repair, modernise, extend or alter your home, we can help you throughout the entire process from the initial consultation, through planning, construction and final sign off. In collaboration with our design partners (your Design Triangle) we come up with the most efficient solution to meet your desires.
"Delivering with integrity and ingenuity, smart, efficient total-solutions for complex projects and in doing so building quality homes, in-ground structures and gardens that are made to last and enjoy."
Director & Construction Manager
Hi, I am Scott Todd, owner of Strathclyde. I’m extremely passionate about our business and providing an outstanding experience for our customers. Back in Scotland, I worked as a site-based Engineer on major civil and building projects, for the largest construction company in the UK. This is where I honed my skills before moving to Christchurch in 2013. Strathclyde offers a "start to finish" service, which means that you have one point of contact throughout your project.
We offer a wealth of experience in the full package from earthworks through to building and landscaping. Quality, trust and communication are paramount to how we do business. We take great pride in our work, and we are focused on providing a seamless professional experience for our customers. We do this through continual development of our systems, and always looking to further our skills and clearly understand our "why". Moving to Christchurch post-quake, I have seen a lot of substandard work and compromising working conditions.
We are committed to providing practical, common-sense solutions to challenging construction projects whilst keeping our team safe and upholding the highest quality standards. I started Strathclyde to be the change I wanted to see, and the change Christchurch needed.
Why choose us
Strathclyde offers offer a wealth of experience in the full package, from earthworks through to building and landscaping. We are committed to providing practical, common-sense solutions to challenging construction projects whilst keeping our team safe and upholding the highest quality standards.
Getting It Right Upfront
We will sit down with yours or our architect and engineer, depending on the requirements, and provide the practical input necessary for the right outcome. As your trusted builder we will help you to get the balance just right in regards to what you want vs what is possible vs your budget. We will mitigate risk for you and provide clearer costs.
While working on your project, we will treat your home and its surroundings with the greatest of respect. We encourage a clean, well mannered and well-presented site at all times. A clean site is a safe site.
Diverse Staff & Resources
All our building sites are overseen by one of our LBP builders, and our civil and landscaping foremen are real sharpshooters. We carry a large range of plant and equipment. We put the right person on the right tool on the right job, providing the highest level of efficiency for our clients.
Complex Sites - Nothing's Too Hard
We make the difficult easy. Technical and logistically challenging projects are both our forte and our passion. Our Civil Engineer Scott and the rest of our team thrive off this type of work, systematically working through your project from planning through construction to execution. Disclaimer: We do enjoy the simpler projects to recharge and hone our skills.
Start To Finish
Many builders and contractors only do one thing, meaning lots of handovers on projects between different parties. Our team will be on-site from breaking ground through to the finishing touches and landscaping. Handovers are therefore in-house, allowing information to travel more smoothly. We avoid the "construction Chinese whispers".
We have a comprehensive 280-point quality checklist that we methodically update throughout the build.
For your complete peace of mind, and to guarantee complete customer satisfaction, we offer our complete Pragmatic Guarantee.

"About three years ago through an ad on the Builderscrack website I came in contact with Scott from TC Groundworks. Firstly he surprised me with a very competitive quote for 2 car parks. Equally pleasing was the way the whole process developed.
Communication seemed to be a top priority for TC Groundworks. I was always kept up to date with progress. Work was executed as discussed and in the end price was exactly what was promised. In the time since I have ventured into larger projects with Scott and Strathclyde as the company is called now after rebranding. We are currently repairing the fourth earthquake damaged house with him. Nothing has changed in my appreciation for the work delivered since we did the two little car parks.
Works comprised many aspects like house lifting, partial and new foundations, building, plastering, retaining walls in steep hillsides etc. Scott has a very versatile team working for him. I should mention that enforcing safety procedures is top priority at Strathclyde. Overall I am very satisfied with all aspects of the work delivered and I can highly recommend Scott and Strathclyde."
