The Foundation of a great job
CAST-IN-PLACE CONCRETE FOOTINGS, WALLS AND SLABS
Thorsland Concrete + Construction provides concrete contracting services throughout Western North Carolina and Upstate South Carolina. Whether you are building a high-end custom home, a lakefront cottage or a commercial building, you can trust the foundation experts at Thorsland Concrete + Construction to get the foundation right the first time. We are not satisfied with simply providing a basic service. Rather, we strive to provide a level of expertise that gets the job done right, resulting in work you can rely upon for years to come.
We begin every job by carefully studying the blueprints and modeling the entire project in CAD to ensure accurate quantity take-offs of all materials. We then load the CAD file directly into our Total Station so all field measurements are accurate to an eighth of an inch. We follow all building codes and safety regulations, order and manage inspections, and work closely with architects, designers, and contractors to meet changing design requirements.
I’ve been swinging a hammer since I was three, and by twelve I was helping my dad frame houses. I understand the concept of getting things right from the start. The whole project depends on the pour you make in the beginning. So we stick by the numbers one hundred percent of the time. Our responsibility is to follow the print and make sure nothing’s rounded off. If it’s going to be close, it may as well be exact. We work in tenths and we catch things before they’re a problem from the builder’s perspective. It’s the way I was brought up in the trade and it’s what makes us different from other folks.
