Precast concrete foundations are designed and prefabricated to
suit existing soil conditions and local code requirements. After the foundation area is excavated, our pre-manufactured
foundation is set on a compacted sub grade, infilled and prepared to receive
the PortaCon precast floor and concrete block wall unit.
Floor and Wall Construction
PortaCon floors are built using a 12” thick precast concrete base equipped with a
stepped and recessed joint to eliminate the possibility of water intrusion
at the base to wall connection
and to provide the structure with a more aesthetic exterior appearance. Floor bases are manufactured with 3,500 psi concrete and are equipped
with lifting points for handling and future relocation of the structure if

standard wall construction consists of 8” concrete masonry units (CMU)
reinforced both vertically and horizontally. All concrete block walls are filled with a pea gravel concrete to provide added strength and
insulation to the structure. Exterior wall finishes include Split Face Block, Standard
Concrete Block, Full Size
Brick or Thin Set Brick wall finishes.
Vents, fans, doors and windows are all pre-installed within the prefab walls to
guarantee proper fit and to reduce on site installation time.
Interior electrical boxes and panels, wiring chases and piping
components are typically pre-mounted prior to shipment. Final connections are made on site and ensure that your PortaCon
Structure is up and running in minimal time.
