Reinforced Concrete Foundations

SPEEDECK’s use of reinforced concrete foundations (RC) has many advantages for any design and build project. It is fast and versatile to construct, and through our finite element analysis we are able produce optimal reinforcement outputs. This means that the substructure design can be perfected for each individual project or plot.


Why Use Reinforced Concrete

Reinforced concrete is a widely known and accepted method of construction, mainly used for its strength, versatility, and durability, whilst also being economical to resource.

Reinforced concrete foundation construction boasts unparalleled speed, efficiency, and reliability, making it a preferred choice in the industry.

Why Choose Reinforced Concrete Foundations

Reinforced concrete sets and hardens around steel bars, allowing it to withstand significant pressure and tension. The concrete itself provides compressive strength, while the steel bars used for reinforcement add tensile strength.

Steel expands and contracts, depending on the temperature, just as concrete does, which means that it won’t easily become damaged. This combination of strengths makes reinforced concrete a popular choice for foundations that need to withstand excessive pressure.
