Concrete Foundation Design Services London
Foundations are the most critical aspect of your build. Without proper foundation design, your property will likely sink into the ground, resulting in cracks appearing, and causing untold damage to your structure.
Properly designed foundations will keep your structure even, secure and supported, even in the event of flood or an earthquake.
Which is why you need experienced architects like AC Design Solutions to design your foundation system.
Types of Concrete Foundation Design
A slab is a single layer of concrete which is poured thicker at the edges to create integral footings. Reinforcing rods are used to strengthen the thickened edge of the slab. The slab is laid on a bed of gravel to aid drainage.
Slab on grade foundations are most suitable for ground that doesn’t freeze. Saying that, the structure can be modified to include insulation to prevent damage by frosts.
The purpose of a footing is to support the structure’s foundations and prevent differential settlement. Footings are critical when building on weak underlying soil.
