What is reinforced concrete?

Reinforced concrete is manufactured from a combination of high strength concrete and normal reinforcement bars.

Are deeper foundations required?

Generally foundations are capable of carrying the additional load without changing the design. Piled foundations sometimes require additional design. Please inform your engineer/architect that you are planning to use slabs, as early as possible.

Is it necessary to build thicker walls?

Wider walls are usually only required where two slabs meet on a wall. Our design division will highlight any requirement for wider walls when producing a slab layout drawing.
