footing

A concrete support for a wall, chimney, or pillar, usually wider than the structure being supported and intended to distribute the weight evenly over a larger surface area. Local building codes will specify minimum footing size for various buildings, although the better practice is to employ a structural engineer to determine the proper size, which may be in excess of the minimums.
