Simple Ring Foundation
The more towers you build, the more you will value the Atlas CTB™’s simple ring foundation. It offers exceptional economies in materials, time and labor while augmenting tower performance.
- Uses only 40–60% of the concrete needed for a multi-section monotower footing
- Reduces excavation work dramatically, lowering equipment and labor costs while compressing the construction and erection schedule
- 1 meter excavation minimizes complications from seasonal conditions (rain) or terrain issues (ledges)
- Foundation ring thickness is 1 meter or less, offering tolerances that are contractor friendly
- No mass concrete pours needed, and therefore, no thermal cracking concerns
Precast Reduces Structural Material Costs
The ideal economic and environmental choice, precast concrete is made of natural and recycled materials offering a reduced carbon footprint compared to steel. But not all precast is Tindall precast.
TINDALLCAST® components are cast under roof, delivering the consistent quality and efficiencies of repetitive, factory-intensive volume production. This reduces structural material costs. The Atlas CTB requires no costly heavy gauge steel or labor-intensive rolling or welding.
And the multiple stave design means the precast pieces transport easily by road or rail, allowing for longer hauls to any region.
Save Time and Money with Precast Components
Construction and erection schedules are more easily compressed when using precast components. Atlas CTB staves and components are manufactured and transported to the site while the foundation is prepared.
Once on site, the rapid erection sequence of the Atlas CTB compresses the schedule even further. Capitalizing on a lower labor component and lighter-duty equipment, project owners will appreciate the added budget benefits and faster start to their ROI.
Made to Last, Maintenance Free
Designed to endure, the Atlas CTB is virtually maintenance free throughout its expected service life of 50 years or more. Concrete offers an attractive, durable finish that never needs painting. And the base itself has no bolts requiring periodic tightening, because the large footprint enables the stave assembly to sit securely on foundation dowels without bolts.
This lower mass, wide-load distribution footprint also makes the simple ring foundation less sensitive to settlement issues.
