Capping Beam

The Capping beam is a steel and concrete beam that ties all the piling together, creates the foundation for the suspended slab and helps to hold the earth and neighbouring houses back.

The steel reinforcement bars are placed over the top of the piling cages with ligs designed to the engineers specs.

Once the steel reinforcement is complete the concrete is then sprayed onto it and the capping beam is formed

Once the concrete is dry the formwork can be removed and the basement excavation can commence.
