STEEL BUILDINGS stand out with their durability, low costs, low maintenance needs and easy installation, but when it comes to the land they stand on, they are the same as any other building type: the land that your steel building is constructed on needs to be perfectly level to ensure the safety and the stability of the building. There are several ways to achieve the level base that you need for your steel building:
- Manual digging – the method is rarely chosen these days, but if the steel building you are about to erect is small, it can make sense;
- Excavation – levelling the ground with the help of powerful machines is the most common way to level the ground on which a building will be erected. You can use conventional excavators for the purpose or you can choose hydroexcavation, a very efficient method that moves the soil with the power of pulverized water and simultaneously the slurry generated with the help of vacuum;
- Using a ground-mount platform – if your terrain does not allow for digging or excavation, you can build a platform that gives the level surface for your building. The solution requires you only to dig out the poles for the poles of the platform on which the building will be mounted.
