Laying foundations for the future



As with all foundations, strip foundations are designed by a structural engineer. Based upon the prevailing ground conditions and the nature of the building being constructed.

Strip foundations are what you might call ‘Traditional foundations’. They are constructed by excavating down to a suitable level where the ground conditions provide a firm base. Then concrete is poured and levelled typically between 200 and 300mm thick depending upon the design. The sub structure masonry is then built from this solid base. Strip foundations are especially advantageous in softer soils like sand and clays, effectively distributing the building load over a larger area which will be taken into account by the designer.

Although we aren’t structural engineers, we do work closely with a number of them and can assist in the process to ensure that a cost effective design is achieved.
