Foundation construction for spread wall footings
normally involves constructing formwork, placing
reinforcement, and pouring and curing concrete, regardless of
footing size or the amount of anticipated load.
Recently, the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA)
has developed a complete foundation system called the Footer
Block system. It was designed to reduce the costs of
foundation construction for 1 and 2 story buildings. The footer black system consists of interlocking concrete blocks
10.2 x 40.6 x 20.3 cm (4 x 16 x 8 in). Because they are
placed with no mortar, delays associated with the curing
process or providing access for concrete are unnecessary.
