Infrastructure, substructure or foundation is the basis of support for the construction, serving to transmit ground weight of the building.
The foundation is the construction element that is in direct contact with the ground good foundation and transmit it all loads acting construction.
The foundation is the main part of the building infrastructure through which abutted on earth is done.
Because the earth foundation has mechanical properties inferior to those of the construction materials used for the foundations, their shape is generally flared, suggesting an analogy with tree roots.
The bearing capacity of the field is determined by the maximum pressure that can support the foundation soil, with no danger of subsidence or its failure to jeopardize construction.
Capacity depends on the nature of the land in which to place the foundation. The calculation and dimensioning of the foundation in addition to considering the requests made by the building must take into account the nature of the foundation soil and involves determining the type, the geometric dimensions of the sole foundation, the depth of the foundation (which is land property) and characteristics strength and deformability of materials.
With extensive experience in construction, Alcoma Iron Construction over time to meet different types of foundations among them are: the impact of the pillar foundations, drilled piers, footings and foundations columns on caissons stabilized earth. The most common substructures needs are met through the execution of rigid boxes of reinforced concrete core and perimeter walls of reinforced concrete pillars and slabs of concrete or intermediate slabs of reinforced concrete. The foundation of the building is ensured by pillars Secant, acting both as a barrier against water penetration and supportive role as soil.
