Foundations & Reinforced Concrete Structures

The scope of work undertaken in this category is extremely varied and may often form a major part of other work types. Much of our reinforced concrete work is carried out as ‘design and construct’ and often as a value engineering alternative to original proposals. 

      Typical schemes have included;

      • Water retaining structures, attenuation tanks, screen chambers and overflows
      • Culverts, headwalls, outfalls, spillways and cascades
      • Shaft base slabs, intermediate landings and roof slabs
      • Conical sludge tanks, tank bases, inlet works and pumping stations
      • Retaining walls in sheet piling, reinforced concrete, king post, brickwork and masonry
      • Bridge decks from in-situ or pre-cast concrete
      • Pedestrian underpasses, work pits and basements
      • Access roads, ground slabs and storage yards
      • Beams, columns and suspended slabs
      • Shear walls & ‘twin wall pre-cast’ systems
      • Wind turbine bases and substation foundations
      • Industrial buildings and car assembly plants
      • Plant foundations, machine bases & press pits
      • Commercial buildings and office blocks
      • Canal basins, channels and capping beams
      • Underground fuel tanks and re-fuelling areas
      • Vehicle wash, weighbridges and sprinkler tanks
      • Waterproofing, tanking, waterbar, injection sealant, spray applied & hydrophilic systems
      • Residential development foundations - rafts, double rafts, strip footings, trench fill, vibro or piled foundations with ground beams
      • Bridge abutments including sheet piled cofferdams and foundation piling
      • Mini-Piling solutions
