Foundations are required for structures that exert significant loads on the ground. The design depends on the geological strata and expected amount of loading: if loads are small then shallow footings may be appropriate, depending on the nature of the ground, but if loads are considerable then substantial foundations and/or deep piling may be necessary. Appropriate foundation design depends on good site investigation, a sound understanding of the ground conditions and experience in designing and undertaking works.

Abstract

Foundations are required for structures that exert significant loads on the ground. The design depends on the geological strata and expected amount of loading: if loads are small then shallow footings may be appropriate, depending on the nature of the ground, but if loads are considerable then substantial foundations and/or deep piling may be necessary. Appropriate foundation design depends on good site investigation, a sound understanding of the ground conditions and experience in designing and undertaking works.
