I am doing a take off on a residential building, I have measured the E, I beams and now moving onto the slab. Are the I beams generally above ground so I do not have to allow for this concrete again? Please advise.

When two isolated footings are combined by a beam with a view to sharing the loads of both the columns by the footings, the footing is known as Strap footing?

These footings are required if the loads are heavy on columns and the areas of foundation are not overlapping with each other.
