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 Barons Court

    Barons Court History

    The tracks through Barons Court were first laid on 9 September 1874 when the District Railway opened an extension from Earl’s Court to Hammersmith. When the line was constructed the area is now known as “Barons Court” was open fields and market gardens to the west of the hamlet of North End and there was no call for a station between North End, Fulham, and Hammersmith stations.

    However, by the beginning of the 20th century, the area had been developed for housing and, on 9 October 1905, the District Railway (DR) opened a station to serve these new developments and in preparation for the opening of the Great Northern, Piccadilly and Brompton Railway, then under construction.
