Weekly Photo Challenge: Containers (IV)

Leave a comment

Monday 21 July, 2014 by Uncle Spike

This week’s fourth and probably final entry from me for the Weekly Photo Challenge is the foundation level of an earthquake resistant house under construction.

In terms of being a ‘container’, this mass of interconnected steel reinforced concrete horizontal columns is surrounded by a skirt (wall). This massive container is then filled with tonnes and tonnes of rubble (rocks), and then a 15cm concrete layer added on top – thereby forming the 600 tonne foundation level upon which the house is built.

Hope you enjoy this entry.
