Our raft design team specializes in the design of raft foundations on expansive soils, horizons subjected to both collapse and consolidation settlement as well as areas underlain by dolomites. Working in close collaboration with PDS Construction and with Geotechnical Engineers, we provide optimal and economical designs to meet the growing demand for economical and sustainable development in South Africa and abroad.

Utilizing current design software our raft team had produced over 3,500,000 m² of raft designs by the end of 2010. In addition to conventional reinforced stiffened and piled rafts our raft design team has produced successful solutions utilizing voided, pod, and cellular rafts.

Raft foundations have also successfully been used by PDS to provide cost effective solutions on normal soil conditions.
