COMDECK – the foundation solution designed for your commercial development

Comdeck is a proprietary raft foundation system and replaces the need for traditional strip foundations or pile & beams; improving quality, reducing costs, health and safety risks and construction times on your site.

Comdeck is designed in-house using our Structural and Geotechnical knowledge, coupled with the latest technology and innovative solutions to ensure that we provide the most effective solution to your foundation requirements.

Abbey Pynford understand that on commercial projects, the foundations can be one of the largest risks to budget and programme.  Once we are working with you, we can tailor our offer to provide a complete service  including: design, setting out, drainage/services, piling, ground treatment, deck-structural floor and we can offer site investigation, a fixed price option and warranty. We aim to substantially improve on you expected programme time by reducing preparatory works, selecting time efficient solutions, reducing interface with multiple subcontractors thus reducing preliminaries.
