Fabric Building Foundations
Several structure foundation options are available to give users flexibility based on the site and the potential needed to relocate a building at a later date. Some companies claim that their buildings can use a reduced foundation or no foundation at all. Make no mistake – a properly engineered fabric building that is intended to remain in one location for more than a few days requires a foundation.
Foundation options that require minimal soil disturbance:
- Helical anchors
- Earth anchors
In some instances precast panels and ballast blocks may be used as non-penetrative foundations. Separate precast panels can also serve as the basis for storage bays.
Cast-in-place concrete is the most common foundation type. Typical foundations include poured reinforced piers, poured walls and thickened edge slabs.
