Surface, subsurface and climatic conditions vary from place to place,

so it is not practical to establish design data to cover all situations.

The allowable soil loading and exact type of subsurface construction

to be used must be decided for each individual case after careful

consideration.

Some of the many conditions that require special engineering

consideration are as follows:

> site on hillsides ±undisturbed/ land filled

> sites at swampy or filled ground

> sites underlain by soils, such as organic clays that will settle over

long period and can cause lateral ground stability problem

> site adjacent to water courses or deep excavation

> site exposed to flood water

> site in regions of high seismicity
