What Are Foundations ?

Shallow foundations, often called footings, are usually embedded about a metre or so into soil. One common type is the spread footing which consists of strips or pads of concrete (or other materials) which extend below the frost line and transfer the weight from walls and columns to the soil or bedrock.

A deep foundation is used to transfer the load of a structure down through the upper weak layer of topsoil to the stronger layer of subsoil below. There are different types of deep footings including impact driven piles, drilled shafts, caissons, helical piles, geo-piers and earth stabilized columns.

Types of foundations that we have worked on in the past.

  • New build housing developments.
  • Home extensions.
  • Commercial new build foundations.
  • Foundations for barns and other agricultural buildings.
