Need a concrete slab contractor near you to design, supply and install a fist floor concrete slab? Extreme Structures can help with the design, costing and construction of raft foundations, first floor slabs & roof slabs.
Our qualified structural engineering team is involved in every step of a slab project and can handle the design, inspection, and certification. It is important to know that your architect cannot design, inspect or sign-off on your concrete slab. Our professional concrete slab team will take it step by step to ensuring that you get a cost-effective slab structure that is designed correctly and built properly.
The first floor concrete slab design process is very important and all our projects are backed up with a qualified structural engineer that is in charge of the design, inspection & certification. When designing a concrete slab the two factors that influence the design of the slab is the area it has to cover and the load it has to carry.
New slab designs include the engineer’s layout drawings and the notes specifying the guidelines for the depth, span and loads the slab would have to carry. Also included in the slab design is the bending schedule for the reinforcement required and the tonnage of steel. Our structural engineering team uses leading concrete slab design solutions that help our customers to save on both building time and money.

Concrete suspended slabs spans between walls, columns or other supports. The slab is built above-ground level suspended in the air and is not connected to the earth. Suspended concrete slabs are used to create floors & roofs for multi-level buildings. The suspended slabs utilize a combination of reinforced steel, beams and columns that are encased by concrete to create a secure structure to build on.
Extreme Structures utilizes a removable formwork system to form and pour the suspended slab in situ. Once the concrete cures and has enough strength to be self-supporting the formwork is removed. We also provide engineering service for the design, supply, and installation of suspended concrete slabs.
There are a few things that will determine what type of slab is required for a double-storey house. Things to consider when deciding on a slab for a double story house is the view, soil conditions, stand size and of course, cost. Extreme Structures has installed concrete slabs in most types of mulit-storey buildings, for example, industrial buildings, shopping centers, hotels, office blocks, multi-storey car parks, schools, affordable housing, houses, flats & townhouses.
The structure we provide is suitable for the construction of masonry, concrete or steel structures. When designing a slab for a double storey structure our engineers always strive to do a design that is both aesthetically pleasing and economically viable.
A Roof slab is a concrete slab that functions as a roof. It is normally considered in joining two parts of a building that can’t be covered by a normal roof or it is used on multi-level buildings where the roof needs to be a functional space, utilized by equipment or planned upward expansion.
Different types of roof slabs include: suspended reinforced in situ concrete slabs, coffer slab, rib & block slab, and echo slabs. When constructing a roof slab it is very important to waterproof the newly built slab as the concrete is poured and water will seep through when heavy rain occurs. We can help with the design and construction of a durable concrete roof slab within Pretoria & Johannesburg and the greater Gauteng region.
