Many people think steel building foundations are limited to concrete slabs. Not so. While it is true that the majority of metal building owners choose to build on a slab, that is not the only choice available.
Any of these three methods may be also be used in combination.
Use, location, soil type, structural size, frost lines, building reactions, and weight determine the best type of foundation for each project.
Pre-engineered steel buildings by definition are engineered and designed to meet or exceed the current local building codes. However, the building’s foundation must also meet those code requirements. The structure and the foundation must work together to create a strong, durable, damage-resistant structure.
A foundation requires engineering, just as the steel framing does. It needs to adequately support the dead weight of the structure and its contents. The foundation must also continue to securely anchor the structure to the ground and withstand any additional stresses placed on the building, such as by howling storm winds or ground-shaking earthquakes.
