Depth of Boring  for Multi-storeyed Building

Peck has recommended that first drill hole is to be made up to depth at which the presence of a thick layer of soft clay with a high value of liquid limit may contribute for settlement. As a general guideline you can terminate all the bore holes at a depth of 3 m below the base of the lowest compressible layer. However, it is needless to say that geophysical profile is to be used for estimating the above mentioned features. Table  shows the suggested values for the depth of boring for different types of multistoreyed buildings.
