    You won't find it.

    There can't be a stipulation on foundation-type because ground conditions can vary so much. However, if there are no unusual ground conditions and a domestic extension is being built, you would usually look at a concrete strip 200 thick by 600 wide, at a depth of around 1m.

    If you are on rock, obviously a smaller strip will do. Your local building inspector will be a good guide as they will know the ground conditions.
