A slab foundation is a large, thick slab of concrete that is typically 4”-6” thick in the center and poured directly on the ground all at one time. The edges of the slab are thicker (as wide as 24”) in order to allow for extra strength around the perimeter.

A concrete slab foundation is most commonly constructed on property that has been graded, as it should be. It is very important that the soil be graded because if it’s not, the foundation could sink or settle due to poor soil compaction.

    Facts About Barbican

    Barbican History

    The word barbican comes from the Low Latin word Barbecana which referred to a fortified outpost or gateway. Such as an outer defence of a city or castle or any tower situated over a gate or bridge which was used for defence purposes. In this case, there seems to have been Roman specula or watchtower in front of the fort from numbers 33–35 onwards on the north side of the street then called Barbican, which was later incorporated into the fortifications north of the wall.

    The main fort of Roman London was built between 90 and 120 AD southeast of where the Museum of London now stands at the corner of London Wall and Aldersgate Street. Around 200 AD walls were built around the city that incorporated the old fort, which became a grand entrance known as Cripplegate.
