Geotechnical Foundation Engineering at its Best
Specialist Foundation Engineers - Groundwork Contractors
We have considerable experience in design and build for a range of foundation design spanning over 20-years.
This project was a traditional extension were we enhanced the foundations to provide semi-basement to match the existing building.
Specialising in underpinning works since 1984 we have considerable experience to identify the cause of foundation failure and very capable to design a cost effective solution.
Notwithstanding our professional capabilities we are more than happy to install any pre-designed engineers schemes.
This is a typical domestic extension where fill ground overlaid the granular sub-soils preventing a traditional foundation for the two story extension. The pile locations were pre-augured to ensure adequate depths.
Identifying the correct pile design is essential for a successful scheme to do so a deep bore soil test is necessary.
This project was a basement creation where we underpinned a shop then tunnelled below a doubled frontage restaurant while it remained open; creating a large private drinking club.
One of just many basements designed and successfully installed by Firm Foundations from open site installations to complex engineering works.
Specialist foundations come in various forms, this project was a base for a large retaining wall at St Michael’s hospice in Hastings.
It was somewhat sensitive being next to the garden of remembrance but great care by our staff was rewarded by customer satisfaction.
