General Notes: Foundations
The foundation design is dependent on site ground conditions, therefore Spunlite Poles Ltd cannot accept any legal liability for the use of this information. It is intended as a guide only. If requested, we will design specific foundations for each project. To verify all foundation designs, a geotechnical site evaluation is to be undertaken and an interpretive report issued by a competent Chartered Engineer to determine the suitability of a specific foundation design. The interpretive report should contain details of the site, interpretation of the ground investigation factual report, geotechnical design recommendations (i.e. bearing resistance and characteristic values of soil parameters for ULS and SLS conditions) and advice on any supervision (i.e. during excavation, the site should be checked by a competent engineer to judge that the soil conditions are appropriate and no modification is required).
