Flat concreting and steel works integrating piling if or where necessary

Raft foundations are used to spread the load from a structure over a large area. They are used when column loads or other structural loads are close together.

A raft foundation normally consists of a concrete slab which extends over the entire loaded area. It may be stiffened by ribs or beams incorporated into the foundation.

Raft foundations are often needed on soft or loose soils with low bearing capacity as they can spread the loads over a larger area.


Pad foundations are used to support an individual point load such as that due to a structural column.
Can be: 




Consist of:

  • Block or slab of uniform thickness,
  • Stepped or haunched if they are required to spread the load from a heavy column. 

Both Deep and Shallow Pad Foundations can be used.
