ABSTRACT
In this paper the foundation solution on loess soil and the piles testing technology for a high building (8 level) are presented. The solution consists in the indirect foundation on load-bearing piles because the foundation soil bearing capacity can not take the load transmitted by the structure, so it can not make a direct foundation. Vertical drilling are carry out to reach a good foundation layer so that the end of the pile will be driven at least 0.5 m in that layer.

Keywords: indirect foundation, loess soil, load-bearing piles, high structures.
