    If you are going to be using the land for building on you want to fill with fairly "rocky" earth, drive around, sure you will see trucks hauling dirt, I have just come in and saw at least six hauling dirt to different locations, follow them and do a deal?

    Tanlic,hmm define landfill?

    If you can't find a rubbish tip, ask your partner to find soil.

    I think you owe Pragmatic an apology

    Caveat.
    At least 3-4 months settling required.
    Depending on the season.

    I'd go 2 years settlement. 1 year if compacted whilst being back filled. Best build on virgin land.

    Sorry to disagree with this statement but I think it is one of those urban myths that circulate with no connection to reality.
    If you build "over" fill and make sure your footings are dug down to and below the original soil then there does not need to be any "waiting time to settle"

    I am trying to be nice and civil but I would have preffered to say will be left unsaid.

    Quite obvious really that if you dig down to the original virgin land you have no need to worry about as much waiting time as if you'd build on a slab. Dunno why yer getting your knickers in a twist. Each to their own as to how they'd do things but the guy asked for assistance and I provided how I was taught to do things. I was taught 3 passes with a compacter for every 100 mm of backfil soil.

    Landfilled on the Monday on the Thusday the backhoe dug 34 holes for footing 1.6m deep 1.2 x 1.2 footings and not a single problem

    Thais do allow land to settle if they want to build cheaply, By simply laying a concrete slab on top if the hardened ground above rain water level

    On this project we will be piling within days 22cm x 22cm 7 meters long so landfill needs zero time to allow us to build.
    I didn't tell you to wait 2 years. I said 'I'd wait 2 years' and I stand by that if it's building on landfill. That reply was initially aimed at Jeff not you. So keep yer shirt on. Would have helped if you'd stated in your first post what you stated in post #12. Have a nice build.

    I do trust that you gentlemen understand the traditional rhymes and reasons for the commonplace uplifting of ground prior to building.
    Has little to do with the general logistics of the build itself, but more of a safety feature for high water [which can be common].

    There are numerous instances where the landfill nonsense isn't required/practiced - business and residential structures - as their properties and areas are not historically inundated with the possibilities of flooding.
