Concrete Piers, Pipes, Waffle Pods and Reinforced Mesh

Yesterday, we found a whole bunch of concrete piers drilled down into the earth (they help stabilise the soil under the slab). There were also a number of pipes ̶ possibly stormwater and other plumbing ̶ sticking out of the ground.

Today, we witnessed waffle pods being installed, with reinforced mesh to soon go on the top in preparation for the concrete pour scheduled Monday next week.

Our SS believes that our site has sufficient (but not problematic) rocks to provide a good foundation, which, importantly, is suitable to employ a waffle pod slab design.
