Slab on Grade Foundation Commercial Service
In the building industry, certain types of foundations are generally referred to as slabs on grade, or simply said, slab foundations. They are often used on commercial properties and residential homes for their low cost and ease of construction.
A slab on grade foundation can be designed with any type of shape or size, but typically have a footing at the bottom that is dug into the ground and anchored to a pier foundation and the top is stabilized using piles that penetrate into the soil. Void filling foam is used to fill the “slab” until its placed onto the foundation. Void fill concrete is used to provide strength and support for the slab and keep it in place until the concrete cures.
