High Quality Foundation System

Foundation Comparison

Advantages of using the Insulslab system in place of trench foundations

comparison1

  • Cost saving when compared to deep trench or reinforced trenches
  • Improved health and safety – no risk of trench collapse
  • Faster construction with reduced weather dependency
  • Engineered solution ensuring improved tolerances
  • Cleaner site build process
  • Less intrusive on site – reduced risk of disturbing contaminants
  • More predictable installation programmes
  • Better thermal performance as standard
  • Contributes positively to SAP / Code for Sustainable Homes/SBEM calculations.

Advantages of using the Insulslab system in place of a traditional raft foundation

comparison2

  • Cost savings due to reduced material consumed and lower site labour hours
  • Faster construction with reduced weather dependency
  • Less concrete required – value-engineered solution
  • Less excavation and reduced risk of using mechanical plant
  • Less steel required than in a semi rigid raft foundation
  • No ‘tumps’ or mounds that can wash away and result in more concrete being required
  • Lower design cost – predicable engineering characteristics
  • Better thermal performance as standard – reduced thermal bridging
  • Contributes positively to SAP/ Code for Sustainable Homes / SBEM calculations.

Advantages of using the Insulslab foundation system in place of a traditional cap on piles solution

comparison3

  • Cost savings due to reduced material consumed and lower site labour hours
  • Faster construction with reduced weather dependency
  • Ability to build off / piling / vibro matt, therefore minimising depth of foundation
  • Less excavation and reduced risk of using mechanical plant
  • Simple build process with less steel work
  • Tidier site conditions
  • Reduced design and engineering costs
  • Better thermal performance as standard
  • Contributes positively to SAP / Code for Sustainable Homes/SBEM calculations.
