In 2015, a client spent N15,000,000 (Fifteen million naira) to cut and level a proposed site.
We never start foundation and 15M is gone.
The cut was approximately 3metres in height.
This client felt that it was easier to construct on the site with no slope but the truth is no site is flat.
Talk about the natural land slope and water surface run-off. How will water flow out on such a site?
Designs may come with “flat” elevation, but during construction, there is always that difference between the earth surface and the building on all sides.
The stability of the exposed soil surface may be compromised and requires care to ensure a stable structure during construction.
Take care to engage the services of an Architect before doing anything on your site.
