Specialist Foundation Design

Current government policy places emphasis on the re-development of brownfield sites. Due to difficult ground conditions many buildings have to be constructed on specialist (non-traditional) foundations.

Carley Daines & Partners have vast experience in the design of abnormal foundations, particularly piled solutions, vibro-compacted solutions, and raft type foundations where appropriate.

The choice of foundation depends on the underlying ground conditions and engineering judgement, paying particular concern to the loadings, the form of construction, and limiting any differential settlement.
