Video: How To Install Precast Concrete Foundations
Steps To Installing Precast Concrete Foundation Walls
1. The lot is prepared. In Manitoba, this means pouring concrete piles or footings (in this video we use concrete footings).
2. The precast walls are delivered to the site.
3. A crane is used to lift and set the walls in place.
4. Once in place, the walls are sealed with a polyurethane rubber sealant and joints are bolted in place (as shown at 2:30 in the video below).
We typically install the precast concrete foundation walls in less than a day! Since the walls are fully cured before installation, building of the new home can continue the very next day.
