We literally install hundreds of concrete ground floors every year so you know you’re in safe hands. We’re fully CSCS accredited, and complete every project to specification and on time, every time.
The nature of a Ground Floor concrete Slab is to form a structural base to a house, office or apartment block and as such strength is the defining factor. You’ll need steel reinforcement and joint detailing for strength and shuttering to contain the concrete pour. The engineer may have also specified insulation and a DPM/GAS membrane under the floor.
When deciding on the most appropriate lay option for concreting Ground Floors we’ll look at access points in order to decide whether it’s viable to use our Laser Screed Machine. If it’s not viable we’ll look to see whether we need to install a Screed Rail system or we’ll opt for a hand lay. In most cases, we find that Laser Screed or Screed Rail are only needed if the floor requires a high level of tolerance. (More information on Floor Tolerance Classes).
Choosing a suitable finishing method depends on whether the ground floor concrete is exposed or covered. In most instances, a flatness threshold of FM2 to FM3 will suffice and as such, you can opt for any of the types of finish to meet your specification. If it is going to be exposed as a finished floor or received only a thin covering, a powerfloated finish is best to give a smooth finish. If the floor will be covered by screed, latex or insulation then a skipfloat finish by hand is usually sufficient and cheaper than power floating.
