The greatest risk in any construction project predominantly lies in unknown ground conditions. It is generally accepted as the area in which clients and contractors face the longest delays, causing the greatest programme impacts, highest risk for contract variations and therefore unforeseen and increased costs.

Sustainabeam™ can help minimise these risks, providing a specialist pile and pre cast ring beam package. A unique, bespoke system which can be utilised on both commercial and residential projects, Sustainabeam™ aligns itself with the recent drive for OSM (off site manufacturing.) with minimal labour on site, more than halving personnel/resource requirements on site encountered from traditional methodologies.

Cairnhill has continued to develop their range of structural products by investing in their Sustainabeam™ System. With its unique design it is the natural choice when it comes to a foundation system you can rely on. Not only are the beams extremely accurate but with their lightweight design it makes installation on site easy and efficient.
