Re: Buying land with 2m fill2

If the developer provides a compaction certificate (preferably level 1) that means that regulated/clean fill has been imported that has been monitored by an RPEQ engineer as it has been layered.
I would only be concerned if the developer cannot provide a level one compaction cert.
I terms of costs, if level 1 compaction has been provided than in theory your slab costs should be minimal.

We had a level 1 compaction certificate but our builder's engineers didn't care. They would only consider what the soil tests showed is actually there. Our site costs were 31k including screw piles. This was about 3 years ago. In our estate some builders did take the word of the compaction certificate and lowered costs, some didn't. It sucked at the time but I feel better now knowing that we have the screw piles.

The plan relating to sub-surface drainage is just a generic plan (it is not site-specific). I don't believe there is any sub-surface drainage around our house.
