Told by whom? Can you provide a link? And what is a "ground beam" in the context of your question? Wood, steel, other material? What is the application?

Also, you posted this in the schoolwork forums, but it sounds like a more general ME question? I can move the thread if it's not for homework.

More information required. Is this piled foundations with a ring beam or some sort of reinforced raft foundation?

I'm not a structural engineer but I can think of situations where they must be separate, and situations where they must/should be done at the same time.
