North Wales based construction company, G M Jones Ltd, is building a new £1.3m head office in Llanrwst on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in record time thanks to adopting a range of innovative building methods. One of these is our Future Found foundation system.

Future Found is a passive foundation system that is manufactured off-site and installed in 2 to 3 days rather than the 2 weeks it usually takes using traditional materials. This means major cost and time savings – as much as 30% savings on both materials and labour costs.

In addition to cost savings, Future Found also offers high insulation qualities and has been continually improved to eliminate wall floor cold bridges. One of the key features of the system is that it will not diminish over time and is unaffected by water.

GMJ is a leading UK contractor renowned for delivering quality projects and builds through reputation, excellence and expertise. The Company operates across a number of sectors including public sector, commercial, education, residential and industrial. As experts in creating smarter spaces for people to work, live and play, GMJ has an innovative approach and application of bespoke delivery solutions applied across the main business services.

It’s no surprise that GMJ chose to use Future Found. Over the years, the company has pioneered the use of ‘fast track’ construction methods. They adopted the widespread use of insulating concrete formwork, especially in the social housing sector and will be using it in the construction of their new offices
