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 Beckton

    Beckton History

    Situated north and east of the Royal Docks, the area was formerly heavily industrialized and was the location of Beckton Gas Works, the largest gasworks in Europe, which served the capital. An adjacent by-products work also produced a wide variety of products including ink, dyes, mothballs, and fertilizers, all by-products of the process of turning coal to coke in the production of town gas.

    An extensive toxic spoil-heap from the Gasworks was known ironically as ‘Beckton Alps’. Originally running from the Northern outfall sewer south to Winsor Terrace, this was landscaped in the 1980s. Part became a 25 meters high Artificial ski slope for a time, opened by Diana, Princess of Wales, with a viewing platform at the summit and a Swiss-style bar at the foot. However, the site is now derelict.

    Housing was created in Beckton for workers of the gas and sewage works. Between 1981 and 1995 it was within the London Docklands Development Corporation area, which caused the population to increase as new homes were built and the Docklands Light Railway was constructed.
