Foundation design


ARC Engineers takes a fully integrated approach to all projects and our understanding of ground conditions, combined with practical site experience and an understanding of current construction methods, enables us to provide cost effective, practical designs giving us an essential edge over other engineering consultants.


Every structure must interact with the ground and it is virtually impossible to separate the above ground structural design from the below ground, substructure engineering. From simple strip footings for low rise buildings to deep basements and everything in between, ARC Engineers have the ability to undertake the design, specification and detailing of all elements required for the permanent works to any scale of project.
