As excavation work progresses on the site, workers have made significant progress on forming footings and pouring concrete on the south side of the building. Workers have also started forming the building’s foundation walls to prepare for the first concrete wall pour this week.

There are many types of footings and foundations that are used in building construction depending on the size, location, and other site factors. The strip footings at Southside Elementary School are constructed using concrete and will provide a solid, level base for the foundation walls.
