What-methods-are-used-to-anchor-the-building

The most prominent method is anchor bolts. These are normally “J” or “L” shaped metal rods that are embedded into the concrete foundation leaving the threads exposed a few inches above the finished floor. Each column that rests on the foundation has a foot print or pattern with it’s own particular force it will apply. Our design software will determine the amount and diameter of the bolts needed. The length of these bolts is determined by your foundation Engineer when doing the foundation design.
