Precast Concrete Piers Tropics( Fiji)


I currently reside in Fiji. Weather here is tropical weather with sunshine and rain round with no risk of frost heave. I intend to build a small wood framed house in a forest setting. Can you please give measurements on precast concrete pier that will be suitable for this as it is not feasible for me to mix concrete in the forest

That would depend on the size/weight of the structure and the stability of the existing soil. Too small a foot print and too heavy a house and it will sink into the soil.
