From many developments and projects the date that the foundations is poured is a key milestone as it means the follow on construction activities such as getting up the internal and external walls can commence.

The foundation, sometimes called the footing, is essential to any house or apartment block as it spreads the load of the structure safely into the ground.

In poor ground conditions foundation piles may be used to carry the load deeper into the stronger soils and pile caps or ring beams may be required to spread the loading from the building onto these piles.

Regardless of the type, the experienced groundworkers at 1M CIVIL ENGINEERING ensure the foundations are constructed to the correct depth, on the correct line and to the correct finish level – ensuring that every building starts off correctly.
