Foundation slab design
As well as the structural calculation package provided with each building, we can provide a civil foundation slab design, reinforced concrete drawings, bending schedules and drainage assessments for your site.
We can also carry out any site investigation (geotechnical) reports that may be required, including ground bearing pressure assessments, CAT scans and underground site services checks.
We can provide the following foundations for your steel frame building to accommodate your building specification and site conditions;
- simple pad-stone
- ring beam or
- complete concrete base
Using our expertise we will provide connection detail specific to your building design and supply a tailored perimeter drip flashing detail to prevent water ingress.
We can review the foundation loads (including moments derived from the fire boundary condition effects) to consider any boundary conditions.
We can also produce an in-house fire boundary check report using the Boundary Condition BRE 187 method.
Our installation team can excavate to reduced levels, remove all soils, prepare and compact a sub-base, DPM, Mesh and ensure site clearance and assist with any site preparation ready for concrete pour.
We can also incorporate dwarf walls into the design, plinths and assist with the perimeter hardcore for the build.
