Site Preparation, Fill Monitoring, & Testing

What takes place at the beginning of a project sets the stage for all future constructability and longevity. In this 2-hour lesson, we start at the beginning where the on-site soil material is evaluated. Here, we start with the International Building Code and what it says about foundation construction and dealing with expansive material and slope design.

What takes place at the beginning of a project sets the stage for all future constructability and longevity. In this 2-hour lesson, we start at the beginning where the on-site soil material is evaluated. Here, we start with the International Building Code and what it says about foundation construction and dealing with expansive material and slope design. We continue to look at the foundation using ICC’s other publication dedicated to soil mechanics – Soils, Earthwork, and Foundations. In it, we discuss cut and fill, preparing the site, shallow foundations, and more.
