Foundation Consultation

Question

A 4 story reinforced concrete structure needs to be constructed on soft soil. Strong strata where not reached, the excavation can only be done up to 3 meter below the natural surface level. Is it safe to lay the foundation of 60' high structure only 3meter below the natural ground?

My zone is not seismic zone. Geo-technical report where not conducted and I don’t know the bearing capacity of the soil. Cost effective solution is also needed.

So what is the requirement for depth of my foundation
