Step 16: Foundation

The foundation stage is critical to the final quality of your home. At this stage:

  • A structural engineer prepares the slab design, calculating load, analyzing elasticity of soil, determining slab drops, drainage, etc.
  • We use hand-tied steel slabs for our homes, which result in a more stable foundation.
  • A concrete pump then delivers the concrete in place. Using a concrete pump stops separation of sand, rock and cement, controls water content, and reduces time of pour.
