The township failed the footing inspection due to poor soil density, therefore, I needed to hire an engineer to design the footings.
In the following picture the men are drilling to obtain soil samples in order to send them to the lab, whereas then the engineer can configure a plan for the footings.
The engineer's plans are as follows:
Deck pilings- 20 feet long and 10 inches round with a 5 ton capacity.
Landing pilings- 20 feet long and 8 inches round with a 2 ton capacity.
