Crawl Space Construction

Crawl Space Construction

ABS Disposable Formworks can be used to raise the ground floor of a structure above the natural ground level, allowing fast and easy construction of a crawl space.

Most single- or two-floor houses are elevated 40 to 50 cm above the ground. This construction tradition has numerous benefits: prevention of flooding, prevention of radon and vapor intrusion, humidity removal, and the affordance of MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) installation passages. The elevation is typically done using brick or concrete pillars connected to each other by wood beams. ABS Disposable Formworks offer a much more rigid and sturdy way of creating a crawl space while, at the same time, offering all their numerous benefits. The ABS plastic disposable formworks can be installed in line with the layout of the house and can be filled and covered later with wet concrete, constructing a “reinforced concrete raised floor” with an exceptionally high load-bearing capacity that is also highly resistant to decay.
