A great building needs strong foundations. That’s why you’ll need to consider the type of base that your garden build will be constructed on. Our package does not include foundations and is on the basis that all groundworks have been installed by others prior to our arrival on site. We recommend one of three types of foundation to be in place ahead of the SIPs structure installation, simply let us know which type you are using in the Eco-room order form and then we will send you a detailed drawing of the floor section for you to share with the groundworks company.
Ground screws are galvanised pins that screw into the ground with precision to create a strong and level platform for your garden room, office or leisure building. Environmentally, ground screws offer a huge reduction of emitted carbon compared to a traditional concrete base. We recommend the Great British Ground Screw Company as our preferred supplier.
Pads offer another innovative solution, especially where the rocky ground makes digging really difficult. Environmentally, the pads can also be a great way to reduce your carbon impact. That’s why we’ve teamed up with a preferred supplier that produces its pads from 100% recycled plastic – we recommend Jackpad.
Concrete slabs can also be used as the base for your SIPs structure. Through our established network of main contractors, we can recommend local professionals to assist with this process if necessary.
