Hi All
First post from me so hello to all.

Currently planning an extension to a 18th Century cottage. The extension will require the new rear wall to be a buried retaining wall and as such we're planning a raft for the extension ground floor slab, constraints to the rear of the property mean we cannot dig out for a more traditional cantilever retaining wall.

Planning to insulate below the raft slab and then apply floor finishes straight to this slab. This will reduce the overall thickness of the floor and reduce the amount of excavation/muck away required.

In order for the above detail to work I will need to install the UFH into the structural slab (probably tied to the rebar). Most details I have seen are based on struc slab > insulation > UFH pipe > screed. Does anyone have any experience of installing UFH into a structural slab. Any thoughts on the pros/cons/pitfalls?

Much appreciated.
