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 Greenford

    Greenford History

    Greenford is considered to be the birthplace of the modern organic chemical industry, as it was at William Perkin’s chemical factory in North Greenford, by the Grand Union Canal, that the world’s first aniline dye was discovered in March 1856. Perkin called his amazing discovery ‘mauveine’. Today there is a blue plaque marking the spot in Oldfield Lane North, just south of the Black Horse public house.

    Post First World War, tea blender and food manufacturer J. Lyons and Co. were looking for a secondary site on which to expand production beyond Cadby Hall, Hammersmith. In 1921 they bought the first piece of an eventual 63 acres site, due to its location close to good transport links from both the Grand Union Canal and the Great Western Railway’s Great Western Main Line, and the West Coast Main Line and onwards to the Midlands at Willesden Junction.
