This practical guide serves as the industry standard for foundation design of metal building systems. Developed in association with the Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA), Foundation and Anchor Design for Metal Building Systemsfills the knowledge void in foundation design and construction by exploring the most common design solutions for pre-engineered building foundations, illustrating their design, and explaining the complex issues involved. The book describes a variety of possible designs, ranging from the most reliable (and often most expensive) foundation systems to less reliable (and typically less expensive) solutions. It aids structural engineers and contractors in the selection of the most appropriate and cost-effective system for any building. By explicitly recognizing the design differences between the foundations for metal building systems and conventional construction, the book helps owners and contractors develop realistic cost expectations for projects and avoid surprises. Building officials and plan checkers will be able to detect potentially inadequate foundation proposals prepared by those who do not fully grasp the complexities of designing pre-engineered building foundations. Owners and facility managers will understand the risks involved in accepting some lowest-cost foundation solutions that make the building difficult to renovate in the future.
