What They Say About Us


I selected Ground Force to demolish two three story boarding houses on a site in central Wellington. The work was complicated by extensive asbestos removal work and being in a busy street. Ground Force took control of the end-to-end process with all subcontractors and left the site in a very clean and tidy state. They were very professional and easy to work with and flexible about site visits to discuss progress. I would recommend Ground Force for demolition work and would use them again.


We needed some work done on the concrete paths beside our house. Ground Force were working on the house across the road, so I asked the man who seemed to be in charge if they’d be interested in quoting for this job.That was the beginning of a trouble-free solution to our problem.

We believe that business is honourable and that it takes integrity for a good business to run well. The staff at Ground Force take our values very seriously.


We treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. We do not tolerate abusive or disrespectful treatment. Ruthlessness, callousness and arrogance don’t belong here.


We work with customers and prospects openly, honestly, and sincerely. When we say we will do something, we will do it; when we say we cannot or will not do something, then we won’t do it.


We have an obligation to communicate. Here, we take the time to talk with one another and to listen. We believe that information is meant to move and that information moves people. We take great pride in our good communication.


We are satisfied with nothing less than achieving the very best in everything we do. We will continue to raise the bar for everyone.
