Step 1: Determine the number of 8.5 inch or 12 inch Waffleboxes in the foundation.
This can be estimated by taking the total sf of the foundation footprint and dividing by 4.15. This results in an upper-end estimate of the number of Waffleboxes in that foundation. Alternatively, have the licensed engineer doing the design, provide the exact number of Waffleboxes from the completed foundation design plans.
As the Western USA struggles with one of the most severe droughts on record, new use practices must be put into action by individuals, governments, and businesses. In the construction industry, the tasks of over-excavating, recompacting, and presoaking foundation pads in preparation for building utilize more water than any other part of the building cycle. However, with the Wafflemat foundation system, you can save thousands of gallons of water, per home, during the construction process.
