QuickBase is a multi-award-winning flooring, beam and pile system. A totally unique lightweight foundation system for conservatories and lightweight structures, revolutionising conventional construction methods.
Lightweight Foundation System
This pioneering modular lightweight foundation system combines the highest quality construction with innovative, technical, environmental benefits as well as cost and time savings. QuickBase is based on helical screw piles, which support lightweight, part-recycled plastic ground beams connected via a series of push-fit joints to form a frame. The ground beam is then filled with a specially formulated non-shrink grout to give a high strength composite beam. The frame carries the load of the building through the piles to suitable bearing strata, uniquely removing the need for mass concrete foundations.
It is then fitted with a premanufactured damp-proof floor slab onto which the inner wall of the conservatory or extension is built.
QuickBase foundations are ideal for other single storey structures such as extensions or modular buildings. Critically, they more than meet the requirements of building control regulations.
Cost-Effective Foundation Solution
QuickBase is particularly cost-effective when working in confined spaces, where soil conditions would usually require deep excavation, where limited parking restricts the ability to remove the spoil associated with deep excavation and where trees are near the built site.
QuickBase systems don’t require wet trade finishing, so labour costs are cheaper and build time is faster. The foundations can be quickly laid by approved QuickBase installers, with full training available to those contractors looking to achieve approved installer status.
Unlike traditional foundations, QuickBase is ideal for less than perfect ground. The piles are generally driven to 4m depth (deeper if required), guaranteeing suitable load-bearing strata, and avoiding troublesome tree roots.
Fully Compliant with Building Regulations
QuickBase is fully compliant with Building Regulations and designed to meet Local Building Control scrutiny.
The QuickBase Design Engineers work in partnership with both local Authority and Private Building Control to ensure all required standards are delivered. QuickBase works with all roof wall and floor configurations.
Design software integrates with most leading conservatory, architecture and modular building design systems. QuickBase is the number one solution for guaranteed, high quality, noncorrosive foundations that give complete peace of mind to the homebuyer.
