    Foundations of High Buildings

    I'm wondering how deep is the foundation of very tall buildings. Is the highness of the building from the ground equivalent to the deepness of the foundation?

    Hi! Everybody,
    The foundations for the high rise buildings should be at the depth of the building height i.e, h/8 and on the Soil bearing capacity given by the Structural consultant.

    Hi G C Goswami,

    Welcome on board. Well, we are discussing about high rise buildings and it's foundation depth here so if you have any suggestion or comment please do post here. If you are looking for total plan & execution of such a building please open a new conversation.

    Well, what are you looking for actually? Are you looking for different plans of high rise buildings? Or you are looking at suggestions on your plan? or methodology for execution. Please be specific so that we can suggest you the exact thing.

    Thanks,
    Jamanat
