House extensions West Sussex & Surrey

Orange Fish Construction offer a complete building service, extensions built on time and on budget.

Footings are an integral part of most construction project, made of concrete that has been poured into an excavated trench. The purpose of footings is to support the foundation and prevent settling or movement and are especially important in areas with difficult soil make ups.

When designing the construction of footings is best left to a structural engineer that can assess the soil conditions and decide on the proper depth and width for the footings as well as the proper placement, however The Groundwork Company will work closely with our customers and the structural engineer to ensure that the best solution is provided.

The dimensions of footings also depend on the size and type of structure that will be built. Placement of footings is crucial to provide the proper support, the combination of footing and foundation distributes the load on the bearing surface and keeps the building level and plumb and reduces settling to a minimum.

The Groundwork Company offer a complete groundworks package for all types of groundworks – large and small – sometimes in difficult, restricted access areas with challenging working conditions and sites with poor ground conditions.
