The groundwork is our work.

Every member of the Littlewoods team is an experienced and highly competent tradesperson. We require all staff to obtain a General Industry Induction before starting work, and we conduct regular training and assessment.  

We’re qualified to operate a wide range of equipment, including excavators, backhoes, bobcats, loaders, rollers, and graders. We also employ certified specialists for challenging tasks such as asbestos removal and working in confined spaces.
