iCon Concrete specialises in all types of residential concrete slab production. Our highly trained team will provide you with the highest quality concrete slabs, specifically catered toward your needs.
Raft Slabs: We can build raft slabs for almost any purpose. Raft slabs are the simplest, most common form of slab production. Raft slabs are a steel reinforced concrete slab, with steel reinforced concrete beams forged into the soil for strength and stability. They are most commonly used for the construction of new houses and extensions.
Waffle Pod Slabs: These steel reinforced slabs are constructed above ground on top of level polystyrene pods. Waffle pod slabs are often used on sites with very reactive soil, and their construction process involves minimal earthworks as no trenches are required. The benefits of waffle pod slabs include faster construction times and improved insulation.
Multi-Unit Sites: iCon Concrete are experts where multi-unit development is concerned. These developments require more planning and attention to detail than many other residential construction sites as there are more factors to be considered in local council approval. Mullti-unit sites necessitate extra attention to detail when considering sewerage, power and drainage requirements. The ideal concrete slabs for Melbourne’s large or small scale development projects.
Concrete Footings: The purpose of concrete footings is to transfer the structural load of the building to the soil. They are necessary to support the structure’s foundation and prevent settling. iCon Concrete can construct concrete footings for the home, and for other projects like decks and retaining walls.
Basements: Basements are a great way of providing extra space and storage to the home, without impeding on yard space. Basement construction can be achieved using a concrete block, concrete pouring and, less commonly, precast concrete foundation systems. iCon Concrete is ready to help with all your basement construction needs.
Bored Piers: These structures (also referred to as bored piles) are reinforced concrete piles used to support high structures with heavy vertical loads. Bored piers are a cost-effective construction solution and are suitable for coastal areas.
Shortcreting: Shortcreting involves the dispersing of wet or dry-mix concrete through a hose. This method ensures the concrete is projected at high velocity onto the desired surface, and means the concrete can be applied in thin layers. Shortcreting is used to build thin-walled concrete structures such as shells and vaults, and is also used to repair and reinforce existing structures.
Retaining Walls: These concrete structures are usually built on sloping ground to hold back excess soil and prevent it from moving and eroding. iCon Concrete can construct a retaining wall specific to your needs.
