Digging foundations can be tricky as is it not a building process to cut any corners with. It’s not as simple as hiring out a digger and digging. Each footing comes with its own set of regulations and needs to be completed with absolute precision to enable the very best end result so the end result is strong on the long-term.
Building Regulations dictate that there are specific dimensions (thicknesses and widths) that need to be adhered to. These thicknesses are dependent on the type of building being developed as well as the type of ground that you are building on.
There are also different strengths of concrete that should be used. These include C15, C20, C35 as well as others. The actual depth of what you intend to dig, depends on the subsoil where you are. During the process of digging foundations and footings, the location of drains and other pipe work also needs to be taken into account. Causing damage can set your project back hundreds and thousands of pounds.
