This research was carried out to determine the effect of external conditions on the foundation of concrete structures. It aims to show the influence of curing conditions on the compressive strength of concrete. Piped water and different temperatures, three soils different content of salts and water containing different amount of sulfates in the curing have been used to see the effect of soil and ground water on resistance of concrete compressibility, when touching the foundations of building during the curing. It was found through laboratory results of this study that the low and high temperature is more than usual at curing and the attacking salts from the soil and ground water contact of the foundations of concrete constructions have negative effects on the compressive strength of these foundations and reduce the age and durability.
