Foundations can be built as simple load bearing foundations or can be as complex as concrete pile and raft foundations, depending on the soil and scale. Intelligent engineering can reduce the costs and conserve the amount of resources used. Designing for earthquake resistance needs to be taken care of, depending on the zone that the building is located on.
At GoodEarth Malhar our project located off Mysore Road in the South of Bangalore, we have used load-bearing stone foundations, which are built using dry packed stone below ground and in cement above ground.
A plinth beam ties the foundation together at the plinth level. This has been found to be economical and has worked in most cases.
A reinforced cement concrete column and footing have been used wherever necessary. In Kerala, where the water table is high, and for taller structures, we have used well designed pile and raft foundations.
Our experience with this system has been one of satisfaction and delight. At close quarters, we have observed the inherent strength and robustness of this system.
At GoodEarth, we are all about creating homes that people love to live within.
