Laying foundations for the future



As with all foundations, trench fill foundations are designed and specified by a structural engineer based upon the prevailing ground conditions and the nature of the building being constructed.

Trench fill foundations are similar to a strip foundation however with trench fill, you can eliminate the need for bricklaying below ground, streamlining your project. The process involves pouring concrete within 150mm of the surface, saving you time and in some cases cost, ensuring your project progresses swiftly. The sides of the trench play a vital role in load-bearing, making it crucial to use trench fill foundations only in stable ground with firm and capable trench sides. The sub structure masonry is then built from this solid base. Trench fill 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.
