With the growing volume of new homes being built, there is an increasing number constructed on brownfield sites. This, in combination with changes to accessibility regulations, can result in properties having extra deep or special foundations to ensure the integrity of the build.
If we find that your home’s current foundations are a standard strip up to 1m deep, we will make good the ground and arrange for your plans to be finalised and submitted to your local authority.
If your house has extra-deep, raft or mini-pile foundations then we will need to re-specify the contract with the correct foundation detail, and the latter two options will require a design for an appropriate specification from a Structural Engineer. We’ll then update you on the outcome and discuss the next steps.
