Concrete Block Foundation :

Despite many advantages discussed in previous posting , the excavation of block is time consuming as it is to be done manually so that side soil is not disturbed . Also block size need to be at least 900x900 mm or higher for manual working excavating.

In case JCB is used for excavation , side shuttering / 4.5" brick wall is needed before concreting. Also in such situation side backfill around block needs compaction .

But still is an economical and faster when compared to conventional spread footing with top and bottom meshes concreting first and pedestal concreting afterwards.
