I have a burn running on two sides of my land. SEPA have requested that we build at a level of 1.57m. We are going to construct the dwelling wth ICF's. What are the best type of foundations?

Firstly, please accept my apologies for the delay in responding, but I had to consult others on this matter, as I have no experience with ICF's.

The general conclusion was that the answer would definitely be site specific and that you really needed to get a local building surveyor to visit the site and recommend a suitable solution. A list of local surveyors can be found under the Construction Professionals tab at the top of this page.

Once you have ascertained what type of foundations are required please come back to this page. The companies featured above will then be able to help you with information on the products currently available.

Kind regards
