Groundworks and foundations to passive standard

When building your eco home consideration of the foundation design is important. Low thermal values and the eradication of cold bridges at the meet points between the foundation are the key things to consider. There are many items to consider in your eco build schedule and it all begins when constructing your foundations.

With our project management team, we take the pressure out of any project as we will deal with relevant bodies such as Health and Safety, building control, consultants, insurance and local authority regulation.

At Lindrick we have our own in-house groundworks teams who design, manage and build your foundations and associated drainage based on your individual site conditions. We handle everything from initial ground condition survey to the handing over of your passive base ready to build your above-ground structure.

Every site is different and we will design your foundation to work with your specification but generally, for eco homes, we build we will build a passive foundation as low as 0.10w U flooring value and this can be achieved using a strip, slab, insulated slab or hybrid to reach the desired standard.
