Do foundations need to be changed to carry precast concrete floors?

Normally standard foundations will be capable of dealing with the additional loads from the concrete floors in a domestic situation. Further advice should be requested in piled foundations or in multi storey situations.

Can walls be built off SpanWright?

Walls can be built off SpanWright slabs in most cases. The type of wall construction depends largely on the span of the slabs. The SpanWright design division will indicate on each customer drawing whether concrete block, lightweight block or studwork partitions are suitable.

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.
