Foundation Design in Las Colinas
Your home’s foundation is one of the most important elements of the structure. Unfortunately, it is often the one element that receives the least attention; because it is the least visible portion of the home. As one client said “Money that is taken out of the foundation can be put into doorknobs.” Proper foundation design requires an assessment of the lot, the foundation soils, and the architecture of the house. In order for foundations to be sound, they need either solid support from stable geological formations or isolated from the effects of expansive soil. Once the lot and geology are defined a choice can be made between the types of foundations available to meet the client’s objectives for foundation stability.
The types of foundation are:
Pier and beam
Slab on grade (with piers and void boxes)
Slab on grade
The slab on grade foundations can be either reinforced concrete with rebar or post-tensioned reinforcement. Independent Foundation Engineers are top-rated professionals helping homeowners with foundation design in Las Colinas.
Forensic analysis is a more detailed examination of foundation problems that may involve additional testing and analysis of soil and structural elements that are not done in a standard foundation report. The aim is to collect evidence for presentation in court related to claims for warranty and insurance claims settlement.
Retaining walls are commonly erected to support structures and enhancing the landscaping. In spite of the crucial support they give to structures, there is rarely proper engineering done to ensure support capability.
