The foundation system that we have adapted and updated is the most economical and cost efficient way to pour foundations and floors. It will provide savings on time, labour and materials. This system we are now using has been in use in the USA since the 1930s, when it was first introduced by the world renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. During the 1970s the Scandinavian countries introduced this system and developed it further and it is now standard practice to use this style of foundations in all Scandinavian residential builds.
We now offer an adapted foundation system suitable for UK building systems and requirements. Here are some of the reasons why the Future Found system should be used:
- Any foundation / floor will only takes two to three days to complete on site
- A 50% saving on the concrete used
- Vast improvement on insulation in floors and cold bridge
- Saves on labour costs
- Save machine time and spoil removal
- Suitable for all ground conditions
And to prove it, we built a 220sq m (2,400sq.ft) approx. residential home in 2011. This home has oil fired central heating and has only used 400 litres of oil for twelve months heating!

Our structural engineer will design a bespoke foundation system for these ground conditions including excavation and steel design.
Our aim is to achieve the most cost affective foundation system for you incorporating “future found system”.
We will look at soil conditions and advise on the most cost affective solutions for building project.
