In a previous blog post, we discussed the importance of strengthening your building when there was a garage below. At Sinai Construction, we take pride in our commitment to excellence and our dedication to providing top-quality construction services. Our experienced crew recently completed an impressive project that involved reinforcing the foundation of a soft-story building. In this blog post, we're excited to take you behind the scenes and share the intricate process of how our team successfully executed this significant undertaking.
The first step in the process involved removing the stucco from the interior of the building to gain access to the existing grade beam. This required precision and careful attention to detail to ensure that the building's structure remained intact throughout the process.
Once the stucco was removed, our crew broke ground to open a trench alongside the building's foundation. This trench was meticulously excavated to the exact specifications required for the project. With the trench prepared, our team meticulously placed steel rods to reinforce the foundation. This crucial step ensured the structural integrity of the building's base. Once the steel rods were in place, we poured high-quality concrete to create a solid and reliable foundation that would stand the test of time.
To further fortify the foundation, a steel column was installed to create a sturdy frame along the side of the slope. This critical reinforcement carries the weight of the entire building, providing essential support and stability. Through meticulous planning, expert craftsmanship, and unwavering attention to detail, our experienced crew successfully reinforced the building's foundation. The enhanced foundation will provide increased stability and durability, ensuring the long-term structural integrity of the building.
