REINFORCED CONCRETE WORKS
Piled Ground Beams, Rafts, Slabs and Caps
To create piled ground beams, reinforced steel is put into place either spanning between the piles, concrete is then poured to cover the cages knitting the cages to the piles which will create an extremely strong foundation to support your building’s structure.
To create piled rafts / slabs, reinforced steel mesh / cages are placed over the area on top of the already created “open” piles, concrete is then poured to cover the steel mesh knitting it to the piles. The concrete is smoothed and levelled to create an extremely strong foundation to support your buildings structure or can be used as flooring where heavy machinery may be used.
To create piled caps, a perimeter usually made from timber or plastic is created around the piles in accordance with the engineer’s drawings in which concrete is then poured onto the concrete piles that to create a stable foundation. It usually forms part of the foundation of a building, typically a multi-story building, structure or support base for heavy equipment.
Un-Piled Ground beams, Rafts and Slabs
To create a reinforced concrete slab the current ground is brought to the correct level. If anti-heave is requested by the local council or engineer, this is then installed accordingly. Wooden or plastic shuttering is made and installed around the perimeter of the foundation. Reinforced steel is then placed and installed to the engineer’s design. Once passed by the building control inspector or appointed warranty inspector, concrete is then filled to the correct level.
To create ground beams, a trench is excavated with a digger to the specified depth and width. If anti-heave is requested by the local council or engineer, this is then installed accordingly. Once installed, RC ground cages are constructed and installed to the engineer’s design. Once passed by the building control inspector or appointed warranty inspector, concrete is then filled to the correct level.
Pile Design Service
We use an award winning specialist pile designer who is equipped with state of the art geotechnical and structural engineering design software who assesses each project and the ground conditions on site to select the most efficient and cost effective method of piling.
The specialist designer can also complete full foundation design packages whether that is ground beams, pile caps, slabs or retaining walls. This is a personalised service we offer to our clients, whether you already have certain aspects completed by the structural engineer or if you need the full design from scratch we can help.
Upon acceptance of a project the specialist designer will provide a full detailed design package which is covered by £5m Professional Indemnity insurance.
