Foundation Systems

To complement the air-tight well insulated structure of your home, it is vital that the building’s foundations are laid to minimalise thermal bridging from the grounds surface into the building, and so compromise the overall efficiency of the home.  We offer two main foundation solutions: The Touchwood Homes Strip Foundation System and the Insulated Raft Foundation System.

Strip foundations

Our Touchwood strip foundation detail uses conventional building methods to create a thermally bridge free foundation system – so can be built using your local diligent ground worker.

Insulated raft foundation

A fully insulated foundation raft can be a very simple solution which uses less concrete and entails less digging and spoil removal than conventional foundations.
