Project Showcase: Metal Building Foundation

Project Showcase: Metal Building Foundation 

“From the first phone call I was impressed !! Omar was prompt in getting the information he needed to give me an accurate quote of what the job required. Once I chose them to do my 24x30 pad for a steel bldg, I was even more impressed with their teamwork & workmanship. That crew knows what to do !!!  I certainly got the communication skill I desire as well as the quality I paid for. He and James were always informing me of what to expect and educating me on many other things as well. I felt like I had known them waaay before now !   These two make a great team and their background serves them well. Would definitely refer ProQuality Concrete to anyone. Thank you for a job greatly done !!!” - Jennifer Havens, Google Review 101/104

In the realm of construction and engineering, the foundation of any structure is not just the starting point of the building process but the very base that ensures its stability, durability, and longevity. At Professional Quality Concrete, Inc., we pride ourselves on our expertise in laying down the groundwork that stands the test of time. Our recent project, a metal building foundation engineered for our esteemed clients Jennifer and Aaron Havens, is a testament to our commitment to excellence, functionality, and cohesive teamwork.

The Project Overview

The Havens' project was not just another assignment for us; it was an opportunity to showcase our prowess in executing a foundation that not only meets but exceeds expectations. The project entailed the construction of a 24' x 30' pad, designed to support a metal building, reflecting the Havens' vision for a robust, reliable, and aesthetically pleasing structure.

Engineering Excellence

Our team, a blend of seasoned professionals and dynamic young talent, embarked on this project with a clear focus on quality and precision. The foundation was engineered with a 6" slab sitting on an 18" x 18" box perimeter footing, ensuring a solid base for the metal building. The use of #4, 1/2" rebar placed every 18" on center within the pad provided the necessary reinforcement to withstand the loads and stresses the structure would encounter.

The concrete poured for this project was of 3,500psi grade, chosen for its superior strength and durability. This choice reflects our commitment to using high-quality materials that guarantee the longevity of our projects.

Attention to Detail

Our approach to this project was meticulous, with every step carefully planned and executed. The grading and backfilling of the slab with cushion sand, followed by compaction, ensured a level and stable base. We lined the sub-grade with 6ML black plastic, a critical step in moisture control that protects the integrity of the concrete.

The hand-tooled 1/2" control joints placed every 8/10 feet are a testament to our attention to detail, allowing for the natural expansion and contraction of the concrete without compromising its structure. The broom finish applied to the slab not only provided a level surface but also ensured slip resistance, combining functionality with safety.

Cohesiveness and Turnaround Time

One of the highlights of this project was the seamless teamwork displayed by our crew. From the initial contract estimate to the acceptance and completion of the project, our team worked in unison, ensuring that every phase of the project was executed with precision and efficiency. This cohesiveness allowed us to complete the project in a remarkable turnaround time of 8 days, a testament to our team's dedication and work ethic.


The metal building foundation project for Jennifer and Aaron Havens stands as a beacon of our expertise, quality customer service, and the high standards we set for ourselves at Professional Quality Concrete, Inc. It is a clear reflection of our ability to tackle challenges with innovative solutions, ensuring that we not only meet but exceed our clients' expectations. This project is not just a foundation; it's a statement of our commitment to building a stronger, safer, and more beautiful community. At Professional Quality Concrete, Inc., we understand that the foundation of any structure is the key to its longevity and functionality. Our project for Jennifer and Aaron Havens is a testament to our expertise in delivering foundations that are not only structurally sound but also meticulously crafted to meet the specific needs of our clients.
