FDH was contracted to increase capacity for an existing tower’s structure to support existing and proposed loading. After exploring several possible solutions, it was determined that an oversized concrete mat would be the most cost effective solution for this tower due to existing soil conditions. After two weeks and 270 cubic yards of concrete, the foundation upgrade was completed ahead of scheduled and on budget.
