Plate or foundation what to choose

Her career began in Sweden in the 1970s, then spread throughout Scandinavia, Japan and Canada, in areas at risk of seismic tremors, with cool climates and varied substrates, where construction requires a structure that is resistant to extreme conditions. The load on the foundation slab is distributed over a larger area than traditional corridor foundations, which increases its load-bearing capacity and does not require deep excavation work. All you need is a photo of humus and a layer of unbearable soil. This is of great importance for investments in areas with high groundwater levels, boulder and embankment waters. Even on such unstable ground, the ground slab fulfils its function perfectly, maintaining an evenly distributed weight of the structure, which prevents the building from settling or cracking of its walls and weakening of its structure.
It is also worth mentioning the insulation properties. Apart from heat accumulation, it prevents the penetration of moisture, so it is ideal for the construction of energy-efficient houses.
In the 1990s, more and more commonly used in the U.S. foundation slabs, most often installed in the U.S., had a floor heating system, so it was accepted to be perceived in common consciousness. Meanwhile, the honeycomb may or may not be equipped with all the necessary installations, thus eliminating the need for underfloor installation at a later stage of the investment.
Depending on the substrate, the slab may be 10 to 35 cm thick, made of concrete, gravel or gravel layers, sometimes reinforced with ribbed steel reinforcement.
Finally, it is worth noting that there is a project to subsidize the construction of houses on the slab, developed by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management and related to the guidelines of the European Union on the energy specificity of buildings.
