If you're looking for a Strip Foundation, raft Foundation, pile or ground beam (Ring beam), you've arrived at the right place. The main aim of Andy Mann Structual Design is to make the design of concrete as simple and effortless as possible for both domestic clients and professionals alike. Simply choose from one of the categories below, complete the quick online form and an engineer will be in contact shortly.
A Strip foundation is a line of concrete that supports a section of the building like a load bearing wall. It provides a solid foundation to leave the building strong and stable.
Raft foundations provide an alternative for when strip foundations are not suitable for the ground type. The consist of a larger area of concrete which allow the load of the structure to be spread out over larger area therefore making it suitible for different types of land.
A pad foundation is used to support one or more columns. It spreads the load from the column over a greater area on the ground. The size and plan of the pad is determind by the bearing pressue of the soil.
A retaining wall is designed to hold soil in an unnatural slope which then opens up more space for devlopment. It can also be used to create a more stable foundation by making the ground more compact and therefore able to bear more load.
A pile beam is effectively a column of concrete which provides a strong foundation. These work together with ground beams which is a beam of concrete (which is usually reinforced with a steel cage as well as piles) at around ground level which runs vertially along the outline of the proposed structure which provides a strong foundation.
If you have a residential or commercial project that utilises concrete, we can design for it. If the service you require isn't specifically listed on the concrete design page, we're still interested in discussing and quoting for your project - follow the link to get in contact with us.
