Project Overview

This highly insulated house includes a insulated waffle pod slab, double glazed UPVC windows and door. Also included 2 Rainwater tanks, evacuated tube solar hot water.

The site's soil was highly reactive which meant that there was a lot of movement in the soil. A waffle pod slab helps here by floating on a layer of FCR (fine crush rock). This allows a slip joint between the two surfaces to minimize any movement.
