Discover How Ground Beams Can Provide Stable Blockwork for Your Foundations

At JP Concrete, we have recently added precast concrete ground beams to our product portfolio.

Precast ground beams offer an alternative to traditional footings and come with a number of beneficial features. To give you an idea of how this product can benefit you and your project, we’ve put together some key information.

 

Why Should I Use Ground Beam Foundations?

This product provides a quality alternative to traditional foundations. Using precast concrete, instead of on-site wet cast, allows for immediate access to site after installation.

Ground beams are typically designed to be used in combination with pad foundations, where the weight of the beams is distributed evenly with each section bearing a concentrated load.

 

What Sizes Are Available?

Our bespoke beams are made to order so you can be sure to find a size to suit your project. We can also manufacture ground beams to suit stepped foundations if the site is situated on uneven or sloping ground.

Dock leveller pits can also be supplied and installed, if required, allowing for easy access for vehicles to load and offload by bridging the gap between the vehicle and the loading dock.

 

How Are Precast Concrete Ground Beams Installed?

The beams are quick to install, saving valuable time and labour. The precast beams are lifted into position and once in place they are bolted down to ensure they are secure.

 

How Quickly Can Ground Beams Be Delivered?

We do our best to get items to you as quickly as possible. As our ground beams are made to order, we ask that you allow 3 to 4 weeks for delivery.

If you have any queries regarding delivery please contact us. Precast concrete ground beams are versatile and strong, providing a solid foundation for your construction project.
