Testing at the project onset showed soil conditions that would not support the weight of the building. Key elements in meeting this challenge were an eight-month, fast-track schedule and a fixed budget. The solution that provided the necessary support for the facility yet met the time and budget constraints was the use of spread footing. This technique provided adequate support by distributing the structure’s weight over a larger area.
