I am interested to understand how adaptable this plugin is for non-US construction. From the screenshots in this thread, the plugin often combines two or three separate elements in, say, UK construction. That is, foundation, footing wall, and floor slab.
The standard method of construction over here up until about 1980 was to have a relatively shallow concrete foundation, maybe only 100mm thick (but up to 225mm thick). You would raise a footing wall off that up to damp proof course level. The ground floor slab would then be poured. That method is still employed where it is difficult to get concrete lorries to trenches.
Nowadays, it is more common to fill trenches to within, say 225mm of ground level and for the footing wall to be very much shorter. It is more cost effective. The footing wall will often be the same construction as the wall above damp proof course level. But it would rarely be the case that ground bearing slabs formed part of the foundation concrete as practicality dictates that they be formed at different times.
Another issue is the foundation width. For external walls, they would be between 500mm and 600mm corresponding with standard digger bucket widths. For internal loadbearing walls they might only be 450mm or even 300mm wide. Depth is variable but less so. There is a standard of 1000mm from ground level but can be much deeper if there are trees nearby or poor ground conditions. Over 3000mm tends to be impractical so different foundation types are used such as pad and beam or piling.
To what extent does the plugin cover any or all of this?
