dc.description Copyright: 2010 Alive2green. en_US
dc.description.abstract Sub-structure generally refers to those components of the building that are constructed below ground, although there are circumstances when sub-structure can also include components above ground such as supporting columns on steeply sloping ground. Barry’s Introduction to Construction of Buildings (Emmit and Gorse 2005:37) defines the foundation of a building as “that part of walls, piers and columns in direct contact with, and transmitting loads to, the ground.” For purposes of this chapter sub-structure includes only those components constructed below ground. en_US
