Type of Construction
« on: November 11, 2013, 11:39:10 PM »
What type of building construction is effective for soft ground? What do building engineers do to ensure the safety of a building built on soft or sandy grounds?

From what I've seen in Discovery Channel and National Geographic, engineers build or put supports that drive through the sand to make the ground stronger. These supports are made of steel or concrete and reinforce the ground and the foundations of the building.

I think this what they did in making the Petronas Towers - the Twin Towers of Malaysia.
