In civil engineering, the foundation may be defined as that part of a structure that transmits loads directly to the underlying soil and/or rocks safely. This is also sometimes called the substructure since the superstructure brings load onto the foundation or substructure. The term foundation soil is commonly used to describe the underlying material within the adjacent zone which will be affected by the substructure and its loads. This is also sometimes called the supporting soil or base material since the total structure will rest on it. TLA prides itself in having a variety of sophisticated and professional testing services on its foundation.
