Piled foundations query`

Postby markfrost » Thu Sep 25, 2008 3:53 pm


I was specified to dig 900mm deep x 600mm deep strip foundations, for my conservatory.

I have started to dig one of the trenches abd have discovered that the house (3 years old) actually on piled foundations, with 500mm thick x 600mm wide concrete sitting on top of the pile.

Does this mean that I will require to pile the foundations for my conservatory?

Any comments would be appreciated.
