Ground Conditions

conservatory-ground-conditionsAn understanding of the subsoil strata on the site for a planned conservatory is needed before any work is started on the foundations. The following factors must be taken into consideration when deciding what type of foundation will be needed and how it will be built:

  • The position of drains and inspection chambers on or close to the site
  • Whether the site is on clay soil
  • The proximity of trees and shrubs
  • Is there a high water table
  • Whether the site is on reclaimed land
