Raft Foundations

A raft foundation is a reinforced slab in the correct position on the ground which allows the foundation to move (or ‘float’ – hence the alternate name ‘floating foundation’) along with subtle ground movement avoiding damage (e.g. cracks in walls).

Raft foundations have always specifically been used in areas where the ground is inherently volatile and prone to ground movement, such as dolomite and clay. The alternate would be to dig deep foundations to avoid the effects of ground movement. However, raft foundations are often being used as a replacement for deep strip foundations as they often prove more cost effective with more advantages.
