I have to agree with Jan, I would avoid black cotton soil at all costs. The only good advice I can give is identify another site.

It's bad enough for more permanent construction which can only be realistically attempted in the dry season, but with temporary constructions, all that Jan mentions become serious show-stoppers. Water supply, water run-off and waste water disposal difficulties - all likely to lead to life threatening sanitation issues sooner rather than later. Paul K REDR expert

Hi

I agree with both Jan and Paul. There is a real danger of making a bad problem worse if the basic essential risk assessment is not followed.

Best regards,
