The importance of Strong Foundations for Buildings


by SA Homes, Posted on



The strength of a building lies in its foundation. The main purpose of the foundation is to hold the structure above it and keep it upright. On the contrary, a poorly constructed foundation can be dangerous to the occupants and the neighbourhood. With high-rise buildings touching the sky these days, it has become all the more important to have powerful foundations. Therefore, it is highly essential to determine the quality of construction when looking for office complexes, outlets for retail stores or flats for sale in Palakkad or elsewhere in the country.

What is the purpose of having a foundation? A foundation plays three major roles in the construction of a structure.

  • The basic part is to support the load of the entire building

  • A good and strong foundation keeps the building standing while the forces of nature wreak havoc. Well-built foundations keep the occupants of the building safe during calamities such as earthquake, floods, strong winds etc.

  • The foundation must be built such that, it keeps the ground moisture from seeping in and weakening the structure.

According to the construction experts and engineers, the foundation must be able to withstand the “dead” load and “live” loads. The dead load is the weight or the load of the basic structure itself. This is called dead load as it remains constant. On the other hand, the live load is the weight of the people and other objects that they bring with them. The foundation must be firm and must be able to channel the weight of the entire building to the ground. If the building is being constructed on sloping regions or moist ground, the foundation has to be customized and durable.
