COST COMPARE - Monopour Staked vs. Two Stage Pour

Significant savings of over 60% can be achieved by monopouring the footing and wall compared with pouring the footing first, then the wall.

In order to make the cost comparison as clear as possible, a very simple foundation 30' by 40' with four corners was chosen. A more complex foundation would achieve similar, if not greater, savings.

The spreadsheet below compares the costs of this project using material and labour costs of Greater Vancouver. Any costs equal for both methods (for example, the cost of concrete in the footing) are excluded so the differences between the two methods are highlighted.

Savings of Over 60%

Savings of this level are seldom achieved in construction and are a result of the following:
