During this process, crews will strategically lay over 88,000 pounds of reinforcing steel to ensure the foundation’s concrete structure keeps its shape and is able to support the anticipated weight of the facility.

Once this phase has been completed, crews will pour approximately 1.5 million pounds of concrete into the steel foundation over the course of 8-12 hours without stopping. After allowing the concrete to cure for about 4 weeks, the foundation’s 30 to 35 foot walls will be installed.
