Four Steps to Estimate the Volume of Concrete Used in a Wafflemat Foundation

Four Steps to Estimate the Volume of Concrete Used in a Wafflemat Foundation

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.

Lowering the Carbon Footprint When Using Wafflemat

Lowering the Carbon Footprint When Using Wafflemat

A Climate Change Gas Emissions Analysis on the Production, Transportation, and Use of Concrete in Slab Foundations. “Use of the Wafflemat foundation-forming system in residential home construction can reduce the level of climate change emissions by 20% [the equivalent of 4 to 9 tons less CO2 released into the atmosphere of an average 1,800 sf home] when compared to the use of conventional slab foundations. Other emissions reductions are also projected.”
