Soil engineers with experience in Green home construction can help advise homeowners and builders how to choose a good building lot. Durable home construction starts with choosing the right location, and that entails doing a soil analysis to check if a lot if buildable, and determine what is the best foundation type for a specific building lot. Foundation drainage protects basements from flooding, and choosing a slab on grade instead of a basement avoids flooding as well. Building on problem soils with high water tables, expansive soils, or soil with low compressive strength requires alternative foundations, like frost protected shallow foundations (FPSF) or raft slabs. Efficient and durable foundations help achieve durability requirements of home rating systems like LEED V4, Passive House or Zero Net Energy.
