We’ve put together a simple tool for obtaining a rough estimation on the total cost of reinforcement and accessories when building raft foundations.

Our calculator is limited to 10m x 10m, just for simplicity and price accuracy. If you need a quote for a larger slab, or more complex project, get in touch.

What’s included in the raft foundation cost calculator?

  • Mesh reinforcement, including providence for multiple layers
  • Reinforcement Accessories including steel highchairs, plate spacers, damp proof membrane, tying wire and permanent formwork
  • Approximate cost of steel perimeter cages for boot sections

What’s not included in the cost calculator?

For simplicity and accuracy, there are certain items we aren’t able to include in the cost calculation. Those are:

  • Labour
  • Concrete & other materials
  • Excavation & spoil removal
  • Professional Services (such as surveying)

The costs of the above vary depending on so many factors that it is impossible for us to offer an accurate range, let alone an estimation. However, for smaller projects, estimation of these costs is relatively straightforward.

For example, an excavation of earth of 2m x 2m x 1m depth would be approximately 5m3 of spoil (not 4m2 due to the air content), and around 7-10 tonnes in weight. This would require 2 skips or lorry loads to dispose of.
