RBeam - Precast Ground Beam System

RB’s precast ground beam system (RBeam) is an in-house designed and manufactured highly engineered foundation solution, offering an alternative solution to insitu ground beams. A non-weather dependant solution designed to improve installation time whilst minimising waste and vastly reducing the carbon footprint compared to trench fill foundations. Individual beams can be raised or lowered, offering flexibility for individual plot layouts and drainage requirements.

RBeam is suitable for use in residential and commercial building projects and is included in the Modern Method of Construction (MMC) Category 3 – Pre-manufactured components (non-systemised primary structure) as defined in the MHCLG framework. This system can be used with a range of piled foundation techniques in many different soil types and ground conditions including heave.

The off-site manufactured modular foundation system is often used to accelerate your build programme with improved productivity, quality and safety and is suitable for modular and traditional methods of construction. The system contributes to improving the Pre-manufactured value (PMV) of a project.
