Groundworks – Stable Bases

As stable builders, we understand how vital it is to get the foundations right.
The majority of our concrete is laid using a professional power screed, with the final finish being hand tamped to provide a horse friendly finish. The edges of the yard concrete will be finished with a 100mm troweled edge all the way around forming a neat and tidy finish that is less likely to break or chip.
It is imperative that your stables are erected on a correctly constructed base. This includes correct falls for water run-off, use of engineering bricks laid completely level for the stables to be sited on.
We use a fibre reinforced concrete, specifically designed for agricultural and equestrian use, which is resistant to urine and therefore lasts longer.
To ensure our bases are completely level and have the correct falls for water run-off our teams use professional, highly accurate laser levelling equipment.
We work from detailed drawings and brick plans to ensure that the base and bricks are perfectly level and square as this is essential for the stables to be sited on.
