QUESTION 1                                                                                                               [35 MARKS]

An open-plan office space is to be built in Adelaide, a semi-arid region of Australia. The footing area for the office space is 15 m×20 m. Design the footing based on soil reactivity (additional information is presented below). The footing type should be Waffle raft where possible. If a waffle raft design is not possible you need to clearly mention why and what alternative option you are choosing.

Your report should clearly show calculations related to Ys, related site classification, beam layout and cross-sectional details (slab reinforcement, slab thickness, beam depth and other reinforcement details). Use AS 2870 Section 3 for your design which can be downloaded from the course website.
