Getting it Right First Time
If you’re building a house, conservatory or extension, ensuring firm foundations gets your project off to the right start. We specialise in solving problems such as subsidence or local authority requirements for reinforced foundations. Whether you’re a local builder or homeowner, we have a team on your doorstep who’ll work with you and advise you, every step of the way.
If you are building a new house, extension, garage or conservatory, M&D Foundations have the team, the experience and the range of piling rigs necessary to provide an economical and practical piled foundation solution – irrespective of the ground conditions encountered, restricted access or limited manoeuvrability.
Supply Your Architects Plans
We need to know what type of building your foundations must support. This helps us to work out what type of foundations you’ll need. If you have architects drawings you’ll need to give us a copy.
Get Planning Permission
Often you’ll need planning permission for new building work including extensions and conservatories. If you’re not sure, contact your local authority before starting work.
Check The Party Wall Act 1996
If your building work is adjacent to a party wall or boundary, you must inform the owner of the adjoining properties before starting work. The Party Wall Act protects you and your neighbours during any home improvements. Ask your architect or project manager for advice.
Arrange A Ground Report
It’s best practice to test the land and soil type before starting work. If you haven’t already arranged a ground report, we can help you get one sorted.
Design The Right Foundations
Our in-house team design your foundations and provide the drawings and structural calculations you’ll need for Local Authority approval. Our qualified engineers will advise on the right approach for your job to save you time and money.
Provide Specialist Equipment & Knowledge
Maybe you have restricted access or need to minimise noise, disruption and pollution. If so, our engineers will select the appropriate specialist equipment from our large range of piling rigs to ensure the most cost effective solution.
Quote For Work
Once we’ve identified the right solution for your project, you’ll receive our quote. As a specialist piling contractor, we’re small enough to provide outstanding value and big enough to offer in-depth expertise on a range of services.
Ensure Your Piling Works Satisfy Building Regulations
We’ll work with you to ensure that your piles are installed on time and to budget. We provide any necessary installation information including pile logs to ensure your project meets building control regulations. Pile testing is available at an additional cost, should it be required.
Provide An Insurance Backed Guarantee
We carry comprehensive insurance cover against defective works and are able to provide an insurance-backed 15-year guarantee on our works.
