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 Forest Gate

    Forest Gate History

    First known record of the name ‘Forest Gate’ comes from the West Ham parish registers of the late 17th century and describes a gate placed across the modern Woodford Road to prevent cattle straying from the open Wanstead Flats area of Epping Forest onto the main Roman road linking Camulodunum to Londinium.

    At the time of the gate’s construction, the Forest and its mosaic of habitats extended from Epping to the Romford Road where a coppice woodland called ‘Hamfrith’ Wood which existed until around 1700, formed the southernmost point.

    General Info

    Forest Gate is a residential district in east London, England, in the London Borough of Newham. The area has never been an administrative unit and so has never had any formal boundaries. Therefore, it is often seen as conterminous with the E7 postal area and so it lies on both sides of the boundary between West and East Ham.

    The area lies roughly 7 miles northeast of Charing Cross and is bordered by Manor Park to the east and Stratford town center to the west. Forest Gate is 1.5 miles east of Westfield Stratford City and the 2012 Olympic Park. The northern half of the busy Green Street runs through it and from 2019, Forest Gate railway station will be served by Crossrail.
