quickbase foundation systems


Postby burt12345 » Thu Sep 23, 2010 9:02 pm

Hi has anyone used a quickbase foundation system? We need to have a piled foundation so are looking at the options.

The quickbase looks as though it would solve all of our problems, but we can't find any reviews or recommendations. Can anybody give any real opinion on it.

I'm not sure I'm allowed to post their web address, but I'm sure if know the company you can advise.

thanks

Hi, I can't remember why, but we had to go for piled foundation due to I think clay heave and neighbours property below our ground level.

However when they came to pile we hit bedrock within 1.5 metres and so we had to go for traditional trench but 1.5 - 2m deep - so a LOT of soil came out!

I ended up self building our extension using Beco wallform.

I can put you in touch with a brilliant foundations company - depending on where you are, let me know.

What a nightmare! That would be great if you could. We need helical piles I think because we've got no access to the site other than through the house. Going for SIPs as a frame though. Quickbase seems like the ideal foundation, so I'm hoping we don't have bedrock issues.
