Siteworks and footings are the first stage of your build
I thought I'd share some of the new building photos, data and processes
Its great for linking in all the important info during your build
A special thank you to Shouri and Barry the Builder for sharing
If you require assistance post back or leave a PM
Thanks for sharing, it's interesting to see how different engineers design strip footings. How deep is the strip and the footings? When I did my build my engineer designed the strip to be 250-300 deep and the footing 600 or 400 if we hit roc, its for a suspended slab.
Feel free to post anytime you need a hand or have something to share. We look forward to reading about your projects and plans. Also please let me know if you ever need help getting the most from the site, or have any feedback about how we can make Workshop even more useful to you.
Welcome to the community,
In the coastal areas of Perth the sand soils are quite stable for building on, the single storey footings are 300 wide x 300 deep
the added steel is for crack control as the client intends putting in large porcelain tiles
At an extra cost of a few $'s for the re entrant bars and upgrade mesh, it's well worth the extra,
The sand is also cheap enough to use as fill, I don't get a call for Bondek
OT, if anyone requires Building information, footing cost comparisons, data, g-sheets,etc leave a PM or email
