What to do with the old foundation ?

Dear Friends ,

you shall come across this question whenever you are developing a property. Suppose you have purchased an old building . You have now dismentalled the building.

Now question is what is to be done for the footings of the old building ?

Can these be used again in the new construction ?

Or these need to be demolished and start with a properly designed foundation ?

This is a very tricky question to answer.

If we want to start construction in an area that previously has a building, what should we do about the footings of the old building ?

Right ?

You can read through my thoughts on this question at the following link :


hope you are able to understand my view points.
