Addition To Basement, Footings In The Way


I am doing an addition. The basement is going to be extended out with the addition and a new slab through out.

The existing slab is flush with the top of the existing footings. To keep the finished ceiling height, I will have to pour the new slab to the same level.

My question is, What are some of the potential problems with pouring a slab to the footings? My biggest concern is water seeping up. We are adding new interior and exterior footing drains.

My architect kinda shrugged his shoulders on this one, so I guess it's on me to know if this is a suitable design. Thanks!

What kind of wall opening will there be connecting the new basement with the old?
