This style of foundation is made with a concrete base. It is a floating foundation and requires only a perimeter footer. It features a “U-Groove” formation, to which the assembled building will be grouted.
A portable foundation made from heavy-duty 14-gauge steel is an option unique to our style of steel building. It is attached to a solid floating foundation and features a narrower footer than the permanent foundation. Anchor bolts are then staggered throughout to connect the concrete perimeter to the base plate. The building is then assembled and bolted directly onto the base plate.
The Benefits of Portable Foundations
- Almost 40% less concrete required
- Faster simpler construction
- Structure is easy to move to a new location if needed
- No grout work required
