Structerre has developed a footing detail to help you reduce costs. The D29 (formerly referred to as the STr100) footing detail can be used for footings of single storey, double brick houses located on sand sites. The new detail is based on the idea of reducing the amount of concrete by using an ‘edge thickening’ rather then than a standard strip footing.

The D29 footing detail complies with the concepts of AS2870 Residential slabs and footings and has a number of benefits, the most important being reduced costs. The most obvious cost saving is through the reduction in concrete used, but there are some other prominent benefits:

The total predicted savings, based on a 20m x 10m house, would be approximately $2,800. Please refer to the D29 Cost Savings based on D10 Footing Detail document for a breakdown of these cost savings.

Although cost savings are important, the benefits of the D29 footing detail aren’t all cost related. Reducing the amount of concrete will lead to lower concrete production levels, reducing CO2 emission. By using the D29 footing detail you will be building in a more environmentally sustainable manner.

Developing innovative and cost effective solutions for the building industry has always been one of Structerre’s main focuses. Patenting this innovation for exclusive use by our clients, such as the D29 footing detail, is just one of the many examples of how we always try to positively contribute back to our client’s bottom line.
