Layer it up
Traditionally in Nizamabad all soil from excavation is landfilled and Murum soils are used as a refill material. When we dug the foundation pits we found that we just had 4–5 feet of Black Cotton Soil and below that was sandy murum.
Step 1: Relocate all the Black Cotton to a nearby farm with thin top soil.
Step 2: Refill the pits with the excavated murum.
Step 3: Further reduce the landfill by adding Brickbat and Construction rubble to the murum.
- Reduction in landfill
- Additional strength from brickbat and construction rubble
- Saving on murum usage
- Ensuring top soil reusage.
