Tuesday morning was the day the foundation walls are delivered and put in place. Wilkins Contracting used Superior Walls by Advanced Concrete for this project. Their system is a process that begins with your custom design and ends with your pre-insulated basement.
Superior Walls by Advanced Concrete Systems are insulated precast concrete wall systems that are custom manufactured to each building’s specifications and have a minimum 5000+psi. The product forms a concrete cavity wall panel with concrete studs reinforced with rebar and polypropylene fibers providing additional structural strength. These walls are water-proof and energy efficient providing a built-in insulation with an R value of 21. They include access holes that are built-in for wiring and can for plumbing as well so no additional framing is needed.
The walls are custom designed to virtually any architectural style to include window and door openings, beam pockets and brick ledges and are available in 4’, 8’2” and 10’ heights. They are manufactured in a climate-controlled facility and delivered directly to the job site. With the use of a crane and certified crews, the walls are installed in less than a day.
Now that the walls are in place, the basement floor will be poured and basement interior support walls will be built.
