Foundation System for Contaminated Sites


As Greenfield building sites become increasing scarce, previous construction or contaminated sites present greater challenges to the construction industry. To tackle this problem, the team at specialist foundation and ground engineering contractor, Abbey Pynford, have developed an innovative foundation system – “Housedeck”.

Housedeck is a proprietary piled raft foundation system that suits a variety of ground conditions and offers unique brickwork support options. Compared to traditional construction methods, Housedeck, is cleaner, safer, quicker, cost-effective and more flexible. It avoids all problems associated with excavations, unstable ground, bad weather and ground water. It also has an inherent and unique flexibility that will usually allow your customers to reposition internal walls even after construction is completed.
