Simply Build It

Whats the ground like? if ground is bad dig off till you reach clay, build back up with hardcore cap off with 100mm of type 1 MOT, then a 150mm conc slab, if ground is good no need for hardcore.

MOT at 100mm = 3.84 ton
conc at 150mm = 2.4 cubic metres

Hardcore if needed depends on how much you have to dig out
