Strip foundations

Strip foundations consist of a continuous strip, usually concrete, built centrally under load-bearing walls. The continuous strip acts as a level base on which the load-bearing wall is built.

Raft Foundation

A raft foundation is essentially a concrete slab that is used to distribute the load from a structure over a large area. In most cases, a raft foundation covers the entire area of ​​the structure. Raft foundations should be used when column loads or other structural loads are close together.

Although raft foundations are often associated with commercial buildings, they can also be used in residential projects. They are generally cheaper and quicker to use than conventional foundations. 

Clifton Hill and Montpelier Builders & Construction uses this design for buildings that contain standard or reinforced basements. Our expertise in this area means that the weight of the structure is evenly distributed over the entire building area, giving you a steady and structurally sound building.

For Experts in General Construction and Renovation


What is concrete and its use?
Concrete is a composite material that mainly consists of Portland cement, water and aggregates (gravel, sand or rock). It is an important building material that is widely used in buildings, bridges, roads and dams. Its applications range from structural applications to floors, curbs, pipes and drains.
What is the difference between cement and concrete?
Although the terms cement and concrete are often used interchangeably, cement is actually a component of concrete. Concrete is a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are sand and gravel or crushed stone; the paste consists of water and Portland cement.
Why is concrete so important?
Concrete is an artificial stone-like material that is used in various building structures. It is very inexpensive and strong and essential for stability in any construction. It is also very easy to make and very versatile. You can use it by shaping it into the shapes you want.
What are the advantages of concrete?
Concrete is durable, low-maintenance and resistant to wind, water and fire. Because of its ability to store heat, it increases the energy efficiency of buildings and lowers heating/cooling costs. 
What is the lifespan of concrete?
The lifespan of concrete is between 50 to 100 years. 
Is concrete stronger than steel?
Concrete alone has one major disadvantage: it is extremely strong in compression but has little to no strength when tension occurs. Reinforced concrete with steel is far better than concrete or steel alone.
What can damage concrete?
Concrete can be damaged by fire, aggregate expansion, seawater, bacterial corrosion, calcium leaching, physical and chemical damage (through carbonation, chlorides, sulfates and undistilled water).
Can a concrete house burn down?
In contrast to wood, concrete does not burn. Unlike steel, it does not soften and bend. Concrete only decays when exposed to thousands of degrees Fahrenheit – much hotter than a typical house fire. 
Do concrete houses stay cool?
The thermal mass of the walls and the tight seals on the joints enable concrete houses to keep conditioned air in and extreme temperatures out. The narrow building envelope also means that concrete houses have fewer hot and cold zones and less drafts.
Are concrete floors environmentally friendly?
Concrete is among the most environmentally friendly building materials today. Made from abundant natural materials, it can help improve air quality, reduce waste, and even lower your heating bills.
Does concrete weaken over time?
Theoretically no. The hydration process that the Portland cement component goes through as the concrete cures slows down over time. However, a concrete mass can deteriorate to a small depth at its edges and at corners and other shaped surfaces. Slight flaking can occur.
What is the advantage of precast concrete parts?
The precast concrete construction has a longer lifespan and minimal maintenance. The high-density ready-mixed concrete is more resistant to acid attack, corrosion and impacts, reduces surface voids and resists the accumulation of dust.
Is the precast part cheaper?
Precast slabs were on average 23.22% cheaper than in-situ concrete structures and precast columns were 21.4% cheaper than in-situ concrete structures, especially for large-scale production
What is the difference between precast and in-situ concrete?
In-situ concrete, also called site-cast, is concrete that is cast, shaped and hardened on-site. On the other hand, precast concrete is shaped in a mould and then lifted in place. 
Is precast concrete sustainable?
Ready-mixed concrete is really a sustainable, environmentally friendly product. It is also extremely durable and uses an extremely low water-cement ratio. All these sustainable advantages mean that precast concrete products are selected as the primary materials in LEED-certified buildings.
When is it ideal to use raft foundations?
Raft foundations are suitable for buildings with a relatively small footprint and low load-bearing requirements. They are also suitable for basement structures where the foundation slab is under tension depending on the use of the building. Raft foundations can once again prove to be an excellent solution in locations with poor soil conditions or limited access for large excavation systems.
What weather conditions do you work in?
Our staff are a hardy group and can work in all weathers although if adverse conditions make the work unsafe or if will affect the quality we may decide to delay. If this is case, you will be kept informed.
