The QPOD™ calculator is only as accurate as the input values provided, please be sure to consider each factor for best results. We have provided the QPOD calculator as a guide only and is based on our professional knowledge of the Raft slab structure with QPOD™ system.
The material results MUST NOT BE USED FOR QS PURPOSES a specific layout configuration can be prepared by our QPOD™ foundations team on confirmation of order or submission to council for consent.
We welcome any feedback on the calculations and would love to hear more about your project.
Estimates are based on the input values used in the QPOD™ calculator, actual concrete usages will vary based on site preparation accuracy, service penetrations, shower recesses and many other factors outside our control, a nominal 5-10% extra would be a normal additional allowance when ordering concrete.
It is estimated based on your area to perimeter ratio in the input values used, Quickset edge and underfloor insulation chosen will also provide additional R value to your floor.
This is our professional estimate only and is based on industry research for insulated raft slab floor foundations.
