Monopour Staked System

This method allows you to pour the footing and ICF wall at one time and is ideal under the following conditions:

In general, the Monopour Staked Method is always more cost effective than pouring the footing first.

The MP Side Support System (which uses side supports) is ideal for reasonably flat excavations and simpler foundation footprints with no custom corners or curved walls.

Steel reinforcing is best provided using Helix® micro rebar, reducing site labour and installation time. When doing the monopour, the foundation and footing behave as an inverted "T" beam. This can reduce the amount of steel reinforcing required (contact us for details).

This interesting project is by Nigel Protter of Exergetics, located in Pemberton BC, high in the Coast Mountains and over one hour from the nearest ready mix plant.

Ready for concrete

Footings and walls are ready for concrete. Zont bracing has been installed.

Imagine the structural loading on the pivot joint between the truck body and boom! Just incredible the strength of modern materials.
