A major single-family home builder in the Southwest is surveying the PANDA® building land to easily and certainly determine the depth of the foundation to be planned.

With 800 to 900 homes built each year, MCA* (Maison de la côte atlantique) is a leading builder of single-family homes in the Grande Aquitaine region(1). There is one area in which the company is at the forefront; it systematically carries out a soil study for its customers using the PANDA® penetrometer on the building site before costing the construction project.

The person in charge of "field visitors", Christophe Didier, explains: "We visit the properties before the sale on which we locate altimetric points and we make deep penetrometric soundings for the bearing capacity of the soils with the PANDA®. This determines the number of rows of blocks required for the foundations. This is very important information to assess the cost of the construction project. This allows us to announce the fairest price to the customer and it is an advantage we have over the competition. »

The company now has three PANDA®, and is at the forefront of soil studies in the field of single-family home construction.

*MCA is part of the Maison France Confort group, the leading builder of single-family homes in France in terms of the number of annual projects.
