Foundations are the basis and starting point of all buildings. Foundations and slabs are dependent on a Geo-technical survey of the ground conditions to establish the characteristics of the founding material so as to enable the engineer to specify the correct type of foundation required.

Foundation types:

  • Strip Footing
  • Pad and Peer
  • Slab on ground
  • Conventional reinforced raft and a waffle raft

Each have variations depending on the soil conditions.
