The concrete mixers that will deliver your mix are approximately 11m long and 3m wide. We generally ask for about six car parking spaces for our vehicles to fit comfortably. If access to the site is limited, we can offer a truck mounted concrete pumping service.
If you are worried about access, please contact us and speak to us directly. We can generally advise over the phone or can even arrange a site visit.
To ensure that you comply with building control guidance, concrete foundations for an extension of anything up to 2 storeys should be constructed at a minimum depth of between 75cm (750mm) and 100cm (1000mm). Strip foundations should be a minimum width of 60cm (600mm) and a thickness of 23cm (230mm). Trench fill foundations should have a minimum width of 45cm (450mm) and a minimum thickness of 50cm (500mm) of concrete.
There are of course many other factors to consider when laying foundations, and our experienced team are always happy to discuss your project and advise on the exact mix and quantity of mix you will require to complete the work.
