Flood plain foundation systems

RapidRoot solutions for flood plains are designed according to local criteria and code requirements. There are various approaches to determining the building height depending on country/ region. In the USA the probability of a flood equalling or exceeding the 100 year base flood  (or "100 year flood") is used,  in the UK its simply the probablity assigned that a given location will be subject to river or sea flooding in a given year.
Whatever the criteria and height requirement Rapidroot solutions can get your building up and above this level giving you peace of mind and a solid long lasting foundation for your building.

RapidRoot flood plain foundation solutions are extremely cost competitive, the elevated post structures with or without principle beams/steel work are simple extensions of our standard systems. Although our foundations are engineered solutions tailored to each site they dont carry the price tag of equivilant flood designed foundations that can cost many thousands more and often make builds unfeasible. If longevity is a concern, our pile cap/pile system is available in marine grade aluminium or even stainless steel for long life in these challengining and corrosive environments.
