We’ve had our excavators in and moved forward a little to the excavation for the footings stage. Before excavating we will have run string lines and marked out our excavation lines clearly for the excavator driver to follow. It’s important at this stage to ensure our lines are square and marked out at the correct dimensions as what follows next will be the concrete fill and footings. If we are wrong here then it creates more work for us later on in the build and we don’t want that. Preparation is the key here..
