At Geobond, our concrete ground beams are designed to provide support to brickwork and blockwork. Our concrete ground beams are an alternative to traditional foundations, requiring less labour and construction. We provide a ring beam foundation to form a permanent shutter to the edge of an in-place concrete floor slab.
Ground Beams are usually constructed from concrete & are generally quick to install compared to methods such as conventional footings. They are generally square or rectangular in section; however, notches, sloping faces and end details can be incorporated into the construction if required.
Ground beam design & manufacture
At Geobond, we are able to produce and supply bespoke concrete ring beam, for your individual project. We are able to inspect your site, to gain an understanding and develop bespoke concrete ground beams. We are experienced and dedicated to meeting client requirements.
Trenches are excavated to the required individual width and depth. Reinforcement is then inserted and tied to the pile reinforcement. The beam is then concreted creating a foundation for blockwork. Lifting anchors are then used to transport and manoeuvre beams into the required position. The beams are then lifted into their final position. The ground beams are connected once they have been manoeuvred onto the pad foundations.
Ring beam foundation
Precast concrete ground beams are an ideal alternative to traditional foundations. They work for both blockwork and steel joists, which means less labour and time is required as opposed to traditional construction. Our beams are placed between pad foundations or bases to provide support to structural properties with a pad and beam foundation.
At Geobond, we carry out site inspections for each individual ring beams project. We can then design and calculate the process, before arranging for delivery and installation. Once we have evaluated the individual project needs, we manufacture the ground beams to the appropriate length.
Why choose Precast Ground Beams
There are a number of benefits to using Geobonds precast ground beams, as opposed to other foundation methods.
Precast ground beams can be installed in any weather conditions, unlike some traditional foundations.
You can be certain of the foundation costs with precast ground beams. With other foundation methods, the ground conditions can result in foundation issues and increased costs.
Precast ground beams also require less construction and labour than traditional methods. This means the footings can be installed quicker.
Geobond’s precast ground beams also guarantee an accurate bearing level, meaning the rest of the project can continue quickly.
