Your modular building I-Beams act as your primary
foundation, but these steel members do not provide
support between each module. You can choose
from a wide variety of foundation designs to support
the mateline, but the type you need for your specific
modular building will depend upon your
overall project objectives. Call us at (866)
266.4622 (4MBA) to discuss your project.
The pictures above show a perimeter grade
beam, poured concrete pier and a perimeter
footer at grade
ready to receive a block stem wall.
All three of these options require specialized installation.
Addressing mateline stress is the most critical
element in a modular foundation design.
The picture on the left is a strip footer
foundation at grade. This economical design provides
support between modules because each strip is poured
perpendicular to the I-Beam frames. The
center picture above is one example of a
pier support system. These can be used as
either temporary or permanent installations.
The picture on the right shows a site constructed
pipe sleeve foundation design.
The steel pipe is imbedded in cement and permanently welded
to the modular I-Beam frame.
Below are three pictures showing the construction
process of a typical strip footer.
