If soil conditions permit, the other solution is to support the columns of the
structure on concrete piles of appropriate length (with pile caps on top of
piles) .... all interconnected by grade beams "vertically, horizontally and
diagonally". In this solution you would not really care what kind of soil is
directly underneath the building.
