No, architectural plans are just the first step. You will need a foundation plan and soil boring report to begin the process of building your home.
A Turn Key Foundation is a package priced to provide all items necessary to complete the project, from plans to completion. PPT will coordinate all aspects including, drafting, Site work, Piers, Post-Tension, Concrete Pumping, and Concrete Finishing. The package includes all materials, equipment, labor and supervision.
We do offer preliminary pricing based on square footage; however, this price often changes once the plans are finalized.
*Please be aware preliminary proposals are for budgetary purposes only.
Post Tension is a method in which pre-stressed steel cables are arranged as indicated by the engineer, and run through the center of the slab. Once the concrete has hardened, the cables are then stressed, cut, and grouted to protect from corrosion.
PPT also fabricates and cuts rebar to specific lengths for projects. We also provide installation.
Helical piers are solid steel screws, while concrete piers are supported with rebar and filled with concrete. Your engineer will determine which pier is right for you.
Plans can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks.
Piers are installed after the form has been laid, but before the plumber has completed.
Post Tension is installed right before the concrete is poured. Only after the soil has been dug, graded, termite treated, and the poly has been laid can we begin to install the cables.
