Our purpose built factory is capable of producing ground beams as well as other precast products to meet the client’s requirements.
Precast concrete ground beams are beams designed to provide an alternative to traditional foundations and are typically designed to span between pad foundations or bases.
Often the beams are designed to support brick or block work and can be used to form a permanent shutter to the edge of an in-situ concrete floor slab. They are generally square or rectangular in section; however notches, sloping faces and end details can be incorporated too.
Milbank Ground Beams provide a great alternative to traditional foundations, offering a number of benefits which include:
- Possible to install in all weather conditions with the benefit of maintaining project programme.
- Removing the uncertainty of foundation costs, where ground conditions result in larger and more costly foundation construction
- Speed – ground beams can be installed much quicker than conventional footings.
- Accurate bearing level – with a precast ground beam the bearing level will be accurate allowing the following trades to work more quickly and without the same degree of levelling up.
