Formco Foundations, West Jordan, Utah

On a mountainous lot in The Colony residential development in Park City, Utah, lies the foundation that Formco Foundations considers its “basement from hell” for 2000.

Kirby Justesen, president of Formco, which is located in West Jordan, UT, gave us the statistics on this job: 698 yards for the foundation walls, 408 yards for the footings, and 123,000 pounds of rebar!

The foundation includes walls of four different heights, from 14 feet to 22 feet high. Total number of linear feet of foundation was 1,387. Details include 800 feet of shelf; 77 corners with an average of 16 feet; and 68 weld plates and moment frames.

Footings were in two sizes; 315 linear feet of 36″ x 12″ footings and 1,033 linear feet of 24″ x 12″ footings. There were 60 pads.

This residence and many others show the current architectural style of many different wall heights and angles in upscale residences.
