Best practice for foundations in the construction industry

The technical team at structural warranty specialists Advantage Insurance take a look at what constitutes best practice for foundations in 2020. For this construction-focused edition of PBC Today, we’ve taken a look at the various options for foundations most commonly used within the construction industry today, and have also considered the key variables which will affect the final choice of foundations at the design stage. We also provide information on current building regulations and British Standards intended to ensure foundations are designed to optimally fulfil their purpose. It goes without saying that mistakes at this early stage of the construction process can prove to be costly to put right and can be detrimental to the building’s structure and longevity. Essentially, the function of foundations is to ensure effective and balanced transfer of structural loadings acting upon the ground supporting the building while preventing the overstressing of that ground. The substrata of the ground will stand as one of the most important factors in choice of foundation.
