For most buildings you will need to organise a base. In some certain circumstances you can use an existing base but it needs to be flat and level. Unfortunately, you do not always know the history of the base, how it was constructed and what is beneath it.
To ensure peace of mind we do suggest a new purpose built base, if you are in any doubt please do not hesitate to contact us.
We have the following suggestions for your base construction
This is the most common base and probably the most cost effective. We recommend 150mm of compacted hard core, 100mm of concrete and depending on the size there may be a requirement for either steel reinforcement or expansion joints to stop cracking. Garden Retreat can supply this as a service, please contact us for a quotation. If however you want to use a local builder, that is fine. At the point of order we will supply you with a base layout and base specifiation which your builder can use to construct your base.
