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 Newington

    Newington History

    In William Shakespeare’s time, there was a theatre called Newington Butts and later there were further theatres. Newington gained in importance with the creation of the Westminster Bridge in 1750 and the associated improvements of London Bridge which required a series of new roads across St George’s Fields to interconnect the routes from them and allow traffic from the Georgian West End to travel south and to Southwark without transitting through the City.

    These routes were Westminster Bridge Road and Borough Road for the West End and Southwark; for the route to the south London Road and St George’s Road supplemented and by-passed the Borough High Street and Newington Causeway. All of these roads converged at a junction where there were a blacksmith’s forge and inn called Elephant and Castle which then became a name to signify the area.
