Concrete shouldn't be set on frozen subgrade. Remove all frost before placing the concrete and thawed soil disturbed by frost. Positioning of insulating material on the subgrade, or provision of warmth, is demanded to eliminate any frost in the earth and to raise the sub-grade temperature above 32 degF (0 degC). A proper provision for heat needs to be chosen based on the total amount of frost depth and temperature variance with all the atmosphere. Once thawed and recompacted, insulation should be set right on the subgrade to protect it from refreezing. Next you will need to build a skeletal framework or an essential form that will explain the structure of the concrete.
