Your foundation type has already been selected in the previous step. This process for regular foundations will require your engineer deciding what kind of foundation system you will use, including specifying what kind of concrete and reinforcing material for the foundation. Specialist bases, such as piles or insulated ones, will be contracted out to a specialist company, which will have its own engineer make the specifications for you. Custom-built foundations will be able to be checked by specialist engineers on site.

Your certifier (this can be your engineer) will have the controlled-ancillary building inspection (NI) and your building inspector (this may either be your job director or inspector) check this part of the building.
