Cast in Situ Concrete Ground Beams

We can design and construct cast in situ ground beams for houses and flats, typically with spans of up to 6m for 450mm wide 450-600mm deep sections, fully reinforced in accordance with the current codes of practice.

The advantages of cast in situ beams over precast are mainly lower cost and improved flexibility, especially if the piles are deflected out of tolerance. Cast in situ beams are often quicker for smaller contracts, as there is a much shorter lead time. However, if lead time is not an issue then precast concrete can be quicker for a large project with many duplications of housing types.
