Trenching and Subsoils


RMS Contracting understand the unique challenges water plays in the development of sites in New Zealand, and the ability to build a stable foundation. Especially for subdivision land developers, where the completion of earthworks is critical to section sales. It is also well suited to infrastructure projects, where earthworks completion is critical to the civil works construction programme.

RMS Contracting has specialised machinery and know how to help develop resilience in the foundation of any earthwork’s platform by the control of site and ground water using subsoils and the installation of other ground water solutions.
