The QuickBase™ pedigree: a tradition of Excellence
Quickbase Foundations Ltd was formed in 2008 to manufacture and distribute Quickbase Foundation Systems.
This pioneering modular system* is based on helical screw piles, which support lightweight, part-recycled plastic ground beams connected via a series of push-fit joints to form a frame.
The ground beam is then filled with a specially formulated non-shrink grout to give a high strength composite beam.
The frame carries the load of the building through the piles to suitable bearing strata, uniquely removing the need for mass concrete foundations.
It is then fitted with a premanufactured damp proof floor slab onto which the inner wall of the conservatory or extension is built.
QuickBase foundations are ideal for other lightweight structures such as porches, extensions or modular buildings. Critically, they more than meet the requirements of proposed changes in building control regulations.
QuickBase systems don’t require wet trade finishing, so labour costs are cheaper and build time is faster. The foundations can be quickly laid by approved QuickBase installers, with full training available to those contractors looking to achieve approved installer status.
Unlike traditional foundations, QuickBase is ideal for less than perfect ground. The piles are generally driven to 4m depth (deeper if required), guaranteeing suitable load-bearing strata, and avoiding troublesome tree roots.
QuickBase is the number one solution for guaranteed, high quality, noncorrosive foundations that give complete peace of mind to the homebuyer.
The QuickBase™ advantage:
- no need for mass concrete foundations
- reduces site excavation work quicker conservatory construction – foundations and floor can be laid in less than a day
- minimises spoil to landfill
- better quality control – offsite, modular construction ensures the highest quality and the tightest tolerances
