Book Description

Part 3 (6 pages) of this Good Building Guide gives advice on many matters of detail that site supervisors and groundworkers should follow wherever possible. It sets out guidance so that commonly arising faults can be recognised and avoided, and the quality of site work controlled to a good standard. The focus is on strip footings and trench-fill foundations but the guidance given is applicable to the vast majority of foundations for low-rise housing described in Part 2.
