Design FAQ


Back ] Home ] Up ] Next ]

Listed are questions relating to the design and production of engineered plans for post-tensioned slab projects.

What information is required in order to design a post-tensioned slab  foundation?

  • Complete architectural drawings with structural calculations.
  • A current soil report for the site by a qualified Geotechnical Engineer.
  • A grading plan for the site if located upon a hillside or where cut/fill operations have been performed.

Is a conventional foundation plan adequate for the basis of design?

Yes provided it is accompanied by the appropriate structural calculations or loads.  However it must be followed up later with elevations &  etc..

Are PTD's drawings suitable for plan-check and construction?

Yes.  Our drawings consist of both the engineered design and shop drawings which are suitable for tendon fabrication and placement.
