A range of high quality equipment, a team of trained and experienced personnel, attention to timing and detail, and a progressive, “can-do” approach to business are just a few of the reasons why so many individuals and organisations turn to Tidey and Webb Ltd for their road surfacing and civil engineering requirements. 

With a history stretching back to 1977 Tidey and Webb remain a family owned and run business offering a range of surfacing and civil engineering services using a combination of the latest technology and traditional techniques.

Specialists in asphalt (tarmac) surfacing, the company has the capacity to construct and maintain a variety of surfaces from roads and car parks, to paths and private drives, using a wide range of materials to suit every requirement.


These may be durable heavy duty asphalts that are able to withstand heavy traffic usage, or more decorative coloured asphalt finishes associated with the domestic driveway, patio or path. Block Paving, Concreting, Surface Dressing and Lining together with Safety and Resin Bonded Surfacing also form important parts of the company’s portfolio and, with the support of its major suppliers with relationships going back many years, is always abreast of the latest materials and techniques. 

Over the years Tidey and Webb have built up a solid and growing client base in Sussex, Surrey and the South East in general, extensive repeat business being an obvious bi-product of a careful, quality orientated and customer focused approach. These clients include many private companies, local authorities, schools, residents associations, developers, building contractors and the general public. Contracts for Southern Water, EDF Energy, The National Trust, British Airways, Dairycrest and Legal & General have been recently carried out, with the resurfacing of Goodwood Motor Racing Circuit being the biggest surfacing project undertaken in 2005.

Tidey and Webb can carry out a broad range of surfacing jobs and this flexibility is one of the keys to the business. Each gang is self sufficient with its own high quality equipment, including loader, compressor, roller and tipper vehicle. From the tarmacing of roads to the repairing of potholes and driveways and with much more in between the company has the personnel and experience to tackle most surfacing projects


In an industry where there is often a gulf between the one-man band and the large multi-national, Tidey and Webb operates as an independent business that strikes the right balance in between. The workforce and range of plant ensure a quick and effective response to customer demands. The company can tackle projects of a fairly significant undertaking without being over-stretched but is also of a size where a personal and responsive service can be maintained.

Customers relationships are established, maintained and highly valued so the client deals with the same friendly face wherever possible. Many companies looking for regular maintenance without the cost of facilities management have found that Tidey and Webb can fill this void with their range of services and availability, coupled with detailed local knowledge.”

Tidey and Webb’s extensive local knowledge is also a huge plus. Having operated in the area for over three decades, the company has formed strong links with the best local suppliers and knows the strengths of each. This information proves invaluable when working with customers

Many of Tidey and Webb’s loyal and locally based workforce have been with the company for many years. This gives a feeling of continuity and reliability in an industry where many business’s come and go.

All the workforce undergo Health and Safety training and all the plant operators are CPCS (Construction Plant Competence Scheme) qualified. Site specific Risk Assesments and Method statements are carried out for clients and all Health and Safety systems are independently audited on an annual basis.

But quality – in terms of service and its operative systems – is all-important and this is the final piece in the jigsaw at Tidey and Webb. The company uses high quality plant and operates a fleet of modern vehicles and backs this up with quality service levels.

The most important element on the service front is time-keeping. The company prides itself on offering realistic dates to clients and ensuring that, when on site, the work is completed by the time agreed to the same, exacting standards
