Cantilever Balanced Pad Foundations.

The cantilever balanced foundation consists of a ground beam picking up loading from the superstructure and
cantilevering out over a pad foundation with the pads designed, theoretically, to have uniform bearing stress (see Fig. 9.20).

The need for a cantilever arrangement can be produced by restrictions from adjacent buildings or existing services (see Fig. 9.21).
