Here are a few pictures taken from our Axis Network Cam located on the 11th floor of city hall. The footers are nearly been completed in the first picture below, and the foundation supports are completed in the lower picture.
This view clearly shows the simplicity of the current approach. SBC, Vitae Architects and Structural Engineers, Inc. used a “spread footer” approach for our building. This approach is based on previous experience with similar buildings along with a sound knowlege of both design methods and cost factors. The previous design, which we could not afford, called for a series of underground pilings and footers.
