floating deck

I am not quite sure what you mean by a floating deck. A floating slab of concrete refers to a slab that is case on the ground, with no footers or piers. A deck on the ground would not be a deck so far as I can tell, it might be a platform, but I would only call it a deck if it is off the ground. But maybe I totally misunderstood your post.
