The foundation is the base for your facility and your equipment. Creating a solid groundwork for your equipment is determined by different factors. Keep reading for a breakdown about some different foundation components.
Footing: The footing is the part of the foundation that supports the concrete slab, floor joists, or blocks. Footings are formed by filling an excavated ditch with concrete to ground level. The footing runs along the entire perimeter of the structure.
Stem Wall: A stem wall is a short reinforced concrete wall rising above the ground and running the perimeter of the structure. They can be poured at the same time as the slab or the footing. Stem walls protect a structure by raising its elevation and guarding against flooding.
Pier: Piers are excavated holes filled with reinforced concrete running at intervals along the perimeter of a structure. Footings and stem walls often have piers.
Grade Beam: Grade beam is a reinforced concrete beam that diffuses the load from a bearing wall into spaced foundations.
