SDS design engineers have developed unique expertise in the construction of low-rise residential and retail buildings in Ireland and the UK.

As both structural and geotechnical engineers, SDS design engineers have developed analytical engineering models to establish appropriate ground resistance and settlements profiles for soil typical encountered soil types.

Which allows us to recommend, in most circumstances, shallow ground bearing foundation solutions for low rise superstructures.
SDS design engineers have developed in connection with the above, particular geotechnical in-situ testing regimes that are used to verify the engineering design models.

On large sites with multiple units or large warehouse buildings, the cost savings in avoiding deep foundations such as piling can be very significant.
