Design and Detailing
ECC Group provide structural designs in full guidance with T34 (The concrete society’s technical report) which is compliant with Eurocode 2. Where the slab loading or support is more complex/non-standard we also have the facilities and expertise to design slabs using Finite Element Analysis software.
At ECC group, our in-depth knowledge of structures and construction allows us to fully evaluate how the floor ‘fits’ within the building, enabling us to design the slab with consideration to all interfaces and allowing us to highlight early any potential issues with other designed elements reducing the risk of delays on site. We have experience designing a range of slabs including ground supported slabs, pile supported slabs and chiller/freezer slabs.
Effective, cost-efficient, and trusted concrete slab design
ECC Group can supply consultation and critical review of the engineers’ flooring proposals, evaluating:
- Joint layout/ Construction.
- Construction detail: Interface between the floor slab and other construction/ structural elements.
- Full structural analysis of slab thickness and reinforcement.
- Review recommendations/ finding the geotechnical engineer.
Many of our clients find value in combining the Design Review with our pre-construction and QA / Onsite Supervision Services. This holistic approach offers all stakeholders the reassurance that the slab is designed in full compliance with the Base Specification and, in turn, constructed in full accordance with the design, leaving the end user with a floor built to the highest standard and fit for intended operations.
