Soil is one of the main components in creating a firm, stable, and robust building foundation. Different types of soil will affect a building’s foundation in various ways. It’s best to ask for professional advice when it comes to choosing the right soil for your building’s foundation. This is due to the soil’s ability to hold and support a foundation. The right kind of soil will act as a solid foundation for the building’s foundation.
There are different types of soil that are commonly used in construction. Each type varies in strength, appearance, quality, and price. Knowing these types of soil can give you an idea of what kind of soil supplies to use for your next project.
The first type is clay. This type of soil is not an ideal soil for buildings as it tends to shift around, and it dries or moistens. This can damage the building’s foundation and could cause cracks or fissures in the building. To make the best out of this type of soil is to dig deeper. Clay soil foundation depths are made deeper to increase stability.
The second type is silt soil, which is a type of soil that can be smooth to the touch and keeps water longer due to its smaller particles. However, due to this feature, this type of soil tends to be cold and drains poorly. This causes the soil to expand, which stresses the foundation, making it weaker and could result in structural damage.
Several types of rock such as limestone, sandstone, bedrock, hard chalk and shale have high bearing capacities. This type of soil is commonly used due to its strong and firm stability. Loam is also considered as an ideal soil type, due to its balanced properties, especially how it maintains water at a balanced rate.

Funding for the Victoria-New South Wales Interconnector (VNI Minor) has been approved by the Australian Energy Regulator (AER), which will play a significant role in bolstering the electricity supply following the closure of Liddell Power Station in August 2023.The Australian Energy Market Operator’s (AEMO) 2020 Integrated System Plan (ISP) identified VNI Minor as a project required to address cost, security and reliability issues in the National Electricity Market.AER Chair, Clare Savage, said, “VNI Minor was proposed by AEMO in their role as the national planner responsible for identifying new transmission needs to support the energy system’s transition.“In our role, we’ve assessed TransGrid’s proposed costs and determined that they are reasonable. The AER has approved the $45 million that is needed to deliver the project.“The project will increase transmission capacity between New South Wales and Victoria and provide consumers with secure and reliable energy supplies.”VNI Minor is the first ‘actionable project’ to progress under new rules governing the ISP and the AER’s decision is the final stage in the regulatory process.The new rules require the AER to assess the prudence and efficiency of the costs of delivering the option found to offer the highest net market benefits in AEMO’s ISP.The AER’s decision amends TransGrid’s existing 2018-23 revenue determination to account for the costs of delivering the project.Average residential customers in New South Wales will pay an estimated extra $1 on their bills in 2022-23 as a result of this decision.TransGrid Project Director, Dany Gittani, said, “The VNI Minor project will allow more energy to flow between the two states and help lower the cost of wholesale electricity across the National Electricity Market.“The VNI Minor project involves TransGrid installing ‘smart wires’ power flow controller technology within our Stockdill substation in the ACT.‘Smart wires’ technology enables the real-time control of electricity flows along powerlines. The system detects areas of congestion in the network and automatically redirects flows to less congested lines, under certain network scenarios. It will allow more energy to be transferred between Victoria and NSW.“The AER decision enables us to deliver the project to fruition this year.”Read more here
