Notes on the Foundations of a New Thames-Side Warehouse

Rebuilding on sites already occupied is a, common enough experience nowadays and the problems in connection with the design and ccnstruction of the foundations are often numerous and interesting. Sites in congested areas of towns, and bounded by party walls with soil of low bearing value are, of course, the most difficult to deal with. The question as to how much, if any, of the existing foundations can economically be utilised has to be considered, but in the majority of cases, as new buildings are both considerably higher and deeper than formerly, the increased loads on the foundations usually make it unnecessary to seriously consider this question.
