Don't go below footing level unless you provide something to take care of water that passes between wall and footing seam or you will end up with water on the floor. It is best to pour floor 3" - 4" above footing and provide vapor barrier between new concrete floor and soil to prevent vapor transmission
let me know if you need more info
