Looks like a great project @trevor_s. I'm sure our members will be able to assist with some advice for you.
Let me extend a very warm welcome to the Workshop community. We're pleased you could join us and look forward to seeing more of your projects in the future. Feel free to post whenever you need a hand or have something to share. We have loads of members who are happy to share information, inspiration and advice.
Please also let me know if you ever need assistance getting the most from the site or have any feedback about how we can improve Workshop for you.
I suggest you refer to the manufacturers Engineering/Construction Data Sheet
Personally, I always recommend Footings & Starter bar with the first block half into the ground. hth
They say "Minimal foundation preparation is required..."
