Spread footing.




  • Once the excavation has been cleaned, the mud slab must be placed.

  • To insure the proper anchorage of the column reinforcement, the depth of the footing will be checked to be greater than 2/3 lb.

  • The hooks, in general, are not a mechanical requirement if the anchorage of the column reinforcement is sufficient; nevertheless, their presence guarantees the strict compliance with the Code and improves the footings structurally.
