Slab on grade

Palmer offers the following services for slab on grade foundation construction.Excavation for slab on grade foundation. Now slab on grade or floating slab foundations are a structural engineering practice whereby the concrete slab that is to serve as the foundation for the structure is formed from a mold set into the ground. The concrete is then placed into the mold, leaving no space between the ground and the structure.

We establish how to seat the footing for the foundations. Soil tests will often be ordered to determine how to proceed. On expansive clay, unknown soils or infill, we will sometimes insist on the construction of a compacted rubble trench to support the loads of the foundation.

In this case, a trench is dug around the perimeter of the future house where there will be footings. Depths, widths and back fill specifications will be provided by engineers.
