Soil evaluation must done to find out of real strength capacity before any conversion decision is taken to change the foundation system of building. This project paper discussed an issue relating foundation system conversion from ‘piling' to mat (raft) system for a hostel block in the Project of Asrama Berkelompok Yayasan Terengganu, Besut. Among other factors taken into account is from cost and time aspect. Cost aspects be major issue to owners / a project client because it will affect budget were appropriated. While time aspect also will determine able construction period completed, do quicker or otherwise will benefit contractor also. Finally geotechnical engineering aspect will be evaluated to be sure the case study can adapt a new of foundation proposal to be implement without involving any risk of failing relates to the strength of soil.
