Footings are an important part of foundation construction. They are typically made of concrete with rebar reinforcement that has been poured into an excavated trench. The purpose of footings is to support the foundation and prevent settling. Footings are especially important in areas with troublesome soils.
The construction of footings is best left to the pros that can assess the soil conditions and decide on the proper depth, width and placement for the footings. The dimensions of footings also depend on the size and type of structure that will be built. Placement of footings is crucial to provide the proper support for the foundation and ultimately the structure.
Concrete footings may also be needed for projects such as a deck, pergola, retaining wall or other types of construction.
Adam and his team have been extremely efficient in all of our dealings from initial query to quote, scheduling times and onsite visit. The response times have been virtually immediate, and everything has been precise minimising any chance of confusion. Adam has taken phone calls and texts from our builder without hesitation and our builder was very impresssed with Adam's drawings for the removal of a structural wall in a period apartment. We couldn't recommend Adam and his team more strongly. Professional, clear, consultative, knowledgeable and gave us absolute confidence in choosing them to do our engineering component.Tanya Miller - Balaclava - VIC
