This page provides information on foundations, geotechnical engineering including piling, remediation and retaining walls.
A load-bearing wall is a structural wall that carries the weight of the roof and upper floors down to the foundations. Concrete is an ideal material to use to support these loads because it is good at resisting compression forces. There are different ways to construct the concrete walls and some typical methods are explored here.
