Almost Ready for First Concrete Pour

This is the  foundation pattern required by the structural engineer  for the new addition.  The purpose of such an extensive foundation is to resist liquefaction that may occur in the event of a large earthquake.
The electrician has added a plethora of conduits for eventual power outlets inside the building for our computers.
The foundation will be poured, more steel is added to squares between the forms, then a second pour will take place.  The inspector is due on Monday to be sure everything is OK before the first pour.
