Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / description of new approach to building construction
Italian term or phrase: fondazioni puntuali
The subject of this sentence refers to the low weight and volume of the construction components used in a new approach to building:

Consentono opere di fondazione limitate, comunque proporzionalmente inferiori rispetto a quelle richieste da un edificio tradizionale, e danno anche la possibilità di utilizzare fondazioni puntuali di tipo meccanico, poco invasive e del tutto reversibili.

Can't come up with a good translation of "fondazioni puntuali". One-off foundations?
