Concrete Footing Contractor in Ottawa, ON
The foundation is the structure that a building sits on. It transfers the weight load from the walls and columns by connecting them to the earth. The structure is placed on the soil, and it becomes the footing, and the soil under the footing is the foundation. The footing has to be created to spread the building load over the soil foundation material, and then is sized to suit the proper strength of the soil that is underneath.
Footings will be designed during the consultation with a structural engineer and will vary depending on the following factors:
- Building weight
- Wall height and construction type
- Type of Soil
- Slope of the block
- Drainage required on the block
