Spirit AeroSystems Skin Mill Foundation

This project involved the installation of a foundation system for a 250’-0” x 30’-0” skin mill in an existing, occupied building. The foundation system was five to seven feet thick with embedded wide flange beams at 2’-0” on center. Along each side and down the length of the foundation were conveyor trenches. These trenches were poured monolithic with the foundation. The pour was 720 cubic yards placed and finished in 14 hours.

During the installation of the skin mill, the equipment manufacturer’s representative stated that this foundation was the highest quality and most accurate foundation installation that they had been involved with.
