My soil tests come back with a M/H rating, plus a P for presence of uncontrolled fill. The developer said there were only cuts and no fills when the land were developed. The P class would require compaction etc otherwise special footing design is required. My question to any builder out there is:
-normally there is an "allowance of fall" typically 0.5m or 1m across the site. does that mean the top 0.5 or 1m will be removed, compacted to achieve compaction level for building? If not, what does that mean ?
-the builder can't just lay the bloody slab on the ground as it is can they ? there definitely has to be some compaction, leveling required, does that change the "uncontrolled fill" thingy?
