SOLID, RELIABLE, STRONG.
The Waffle Pod Footing system is an innovative method of constructing concrete slabs, providing enormous strength and durability and significantly reducing building costs. The system 'on-ground' rather than 'in-ground' slabs, eliminating the need for labour intensive trenching - formerly essential to create underfloor concrete beams in conventional slab construction methods. Construction takes place on cleared level surfaces, allowing work to continue uninterrupted in inclement weather conditions. The environment friendly system uses polystyrene void formers arranged on the leveled building area in a grid pattern with reinforcing between and above the void formers. Concrete fills the spaces between and across the Ribbed Raft to form a slab over the entire area. The spaces between the void formers effectively become concrete beams on ribs resulting in a slab which is a structural element of immense strength.
