Foundation Specialists

Building foundations are one of the most important aspects of any building. They provide the base on which the building stands, and if they are not installed correctly, the building could be in danger of collapsing or costly repair work in the future.

There are many factors that need to be considered when installing a foundation. The first is the type of soil that is present at the construction site. The soil needs to be able to support the weight of the building, so if it is too soft or unstable, a foundation will need to be installed that can compensate for this.

The second factor is the climate. If the area is prone to floods here in the UK, a different type of foundation will be required.

Once these factors have been considered, the next step is to design the foundation. This can be done by one of our qualified engineers, as it is a complex process that takes into account multiple variables.

The foundation is then built on site, using either concrete or steel beams. It is important that it is built correctly, as any mistakes could cause the building to collapse.

Once the foundation is in place, the rest of the building can be constructed. This ensures that the building is stable and safe for inhabitants and employees.

Overall, installing a foundation is a complex process, but it is essential for ensuring the stability of any building. If you are thinking about constructing a new building, make sure you consult with a qualified engineer to discuss your options and ensure that your building will be safe for years to come.

 

Foundation Inspections

We excavate and carry out inspections on the ground. Multiple factors need to be taken into account such as the type of soil we are placing our foundations, planned access to sewers and the nearby landscape environment such as trees and other building structures.

We carry out CBR and plate load testing to ensure your foundations are on safe ground for buildings and machinery.

As specialist groundwork contractors, our team has extensive knowledge and experience on multi-million-pound manufacturing, retail, highway and housing developments.
