Foundation is the lowest part of a buildings structure that is in direct contact with the soil which transfers loads from the structure to the soil safely. Broadly speaking, all foundations are divided into two categories: shallow foundations and deep foundations. The words shallow and deep refer to the depth of soil in which the foundation is made. Shallow foundations can be made in depths of as little as 3 feet, while deep foundations can be made at depths of 60 – 200 feet. The taller the building the deeper the foundation.
