Filling in the Foundation

With our Superform in place we are now able to pour the concrete for our foundation. As we've talked about in past posts, building in an existing residential area can pose a few extra challenges that a new area might not. In this case getting big trucks into our site is impossible. There's simply no room.

The solution? Bring in a pump truck.

As you'll see in this video, the pump truck uses a giant arm to pump the concrete from the cement trucks into our Superform. The hose on the arm of the pump truck reaches over the site without having to move the trucks. A small crew then manually guides the end of the hose over the Superform to ensure that the foundation is filled evenly.

Have a look!
