Substructure/ Foundation Design

Keywords: foundation design, reinforced concrete design

 

The adoption of the most appropriate and economical foundation is to a

significant extent governed by the ground conditions encountered and

type of structure to be supported. Our particular strength in this area

derives from the company's extensive experience across a broad range of

building structures and site conditions.

 

Our design capability extends from the simplicity of trench fill foundations

adjacent tress, through various forms of reinforced concrete rafts/ slabs

or ground beams, to the relative complexity of a piled solution.

 

Building designs often include the incorporation of basement retaining

walls to form car parks, plant rooms, bedrooms and other usable spaces.

Our capabilities cover the design of the permanent structure as well as

the design of temporary works to enable construction such as foundations

supporting cranes.

 

We are also competent in the various methods of underpinning techniques

to stabilise buildings that are suffering effects from differential settlement.

Our underpinning designs may take various forms, from traditional mass

concrete blocks, mass concrete pad and reinforced concrete beam/ slab,

to piled solutions or further specialist techniques.
