Foundation advice and foundation drawings
Our Geotechnical engineer would be happy to advise you on the required type of foundation whether this is a shallow foundation, a piled foundation, a retaining wall foundation, a foundation on a slope or a foundation on weak soil. Our foundations are also designed and verified for uplift forces caused by cyclone wind in the event that a unit will be built in a cyclone prone area.
For complicated issues our engineer may ask for a copy of the soil investigation report along with the SPT graphs, bore logs and/or laboratory test results.
We will supply a set of foundation drawings showing footing locations, details, rebar drawings and the type and number of Simpson anchors to be installed. We offer the foundation drawings free of charge, provided a fabrication order for the wooden house has materialized. Below we show a typical set of foundation drawings for a project using a shallow footing foundation.
