about us

Who We Are

YPP Groundworks & Civils Limited is a family run business, which was originally set up in 2012 by Tom Armitage under the name Yorkshire Pro-Paving.  The business name changed to Yorkshire Pro Paving & Groundworks Limited in 2014, to reflect the company’s expansion and widening areas of expertise.  The company undertook another name change in April 2022 in recognition of our growth from specialist hard landscapers to contractors offering groundwork, civil engineering and utilities services.   

Despite our growth over the years, YPP Groundworks & Civils Limited remains a family run business, with ten members of Tom’s family currently working either on site or in our Leeds based offices.

What We Do

We offer groundworks, civil engineering, utility and hard landscaping services for commercial projects that range from £5,000 to £5 million. Our scope of works includes drainage, foundations, concreting, externals, road construction, deep drainage, sewer connections and hard landscaping. Over the years we have built an enviable portfolio of projects, with a proven history on both the private and public sectors.

Our Skills

Whilst we are proud to have an already experienced and highly skilled workforce, as a company we seek to improve our team with regular training. We recognise that through the development of individuals we create a stronger workforce, ensuring a higher level of service for our clients and a safe working environment for our colleagues.

How We Work

We are firm believers in collaborating closely with our clients throughout the installation programme in order to ensure that even the most complex projects are completed within agreed timescales, on budget and safely. The quality of workmanship, flexibility and diligence is frequently remarked upon by our clients and we have an excellent record for repeat business.

Company Ethos

Family values are at the core of YPP Groundworks & Civils Limited. Although not every member of the team belongs to Tom’s family, there is a strong bond running throughout the workforce, forged through many years working together and friendships away from the site. We are immensely proud of our staff retention record and believe that a long serving workforce is the best way to ensure that our own high standards are maintained.
