Type of Foundations

Choosing the right foundation is crucial for the stability and longevity of your building. At Kenward, we have the expertise to design and build the perfect foundation for any project, from single-story homes to towering structures. Here’s a breakdown of the most common foundation types:

  • Isolated Pad Foundations: These are the workhorses of foundations, supporting single columns. These types of foundation can vary on size and shape based on soil type and loading requirements.

  • Attached Pad Foundations: When columns are close together, a combined footing offers an efficient solution. This single foundation combines the support for multiple columns, optimizing space and materials.

  • Strip Foundations: Ideal for load-bearing walls and rows of columns. They offer exceptional stability and are commonly used for extensions and new builds where ground conditions allow.

  • Raft Foundations (Mat Foundations): These large slabs distribute weight across a wider area. They are used for low soil pressure situations where individual footings are impractical or cost-prohibitive.

  • Pile Foundations: For unstable ground conditions and heavy loads, piles are driven deep into the earth and filled with concrete. A ground beam is then added to create a solid support structure.

  • Underpinning: A process that strengthens and stabilises a current foundation, allowing for safe excavation below it. This essential technique ensures the structural integrity of your building.
