Foundation Construction

Commercial, industrial, civil and residential foundations are a key focus of our groundwork improvement solutions. We provide an integrated package, eliminating the need for subcontractors at various parts of the construction process, easing the load of our clients.

CLL also has its own formwork carpenter teams who assemble the foundations for over 200 residential homes each year.

Our start-to-finish foundation-construction capabilities include:

  • Excavations
  • Drainage
  • Temporary retaining
  • Piling
  • Masonry work
  • Waterproofing
  • Concrete slabs
  • Hard landscaping

“Foundation construction is very much a horses for courses approach. Quite often, we’re a sub-contractor to the main contractor, or to a private client, in which case the foundation design may already by determined. Whether it is this, or CLL as the main contractor, the process starts with the geotech report.”

“This tells us what the actual ground conditions are. It could be collapsing ground, hard, wet, or any other state. This geotech report determines how and what we construct. We often find we’re able to provide an alternative foundation type to the client. Our experience, knowledge and expertise allows us to provide options to a design engineer.”

“It’s about knowing what type of foundation will work best in any particular situation – and this is our ninja skill.”
