A Raft, Slab or Mat foundation, is reinforced concrete pad foundations under the whole of a building or extension. This type of foundation spreads the load of the building over a larger area than other foundations, therefore lowering the pressure on the ground. It can mean smaller, less, or shorter piles need to go underneath. This can lower your cost. The concrete slab includes steel reinforcement to prevent cracking and can occasionally include beams of thickened areas to provide additional support. For supporting walls of columns in poorer ground conditions. We can design and install all types of foundations and can advise you on what is most economical for the needs of your project.
