Foundation Block

CCP Foundation blocks not only offer the specifier a product that is durable, efficient and highly economical but also offers one which is excellent value for money. Having CCP foundation blocks on site means that time delays due to the non-arrival of wet mixes are a thing of the past.

Easier to form within a trench than two skins of other blocks and without need to mess about filling cavities CCP foundation blocks are suitable for up to DS-3 conditions and been specifically designed for below DPC use.

CCP recommend that aggregate blocks should not be laid in temperatures below 3° Celsius and when being laid below ground level a general purpose mortar containing 1:1:5-6 cement: lime: sand (or equivalent) should be used.

Thermally efficient, quantifiably more accurate CCP foundation blocks weigh approximately 18 kg and comply with HSE / CDM guidelines for single unit manual handling, however it is good practice to individually assess site manual handling practices on an individual basis. Guidelines for this can be found in HSE Information Sheet No 37.
