Re: Column leveling plates

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think a combination anchor bolt template and leveling plate, the same size
as the column base, (the anchor bolts fastened to the template/leveling plate
with double nuts and enough thread for final adjustment) is a way to get a
good job and that it is a standard practice. There should be enough of a gap
between the level plate and the footing to get a good drypack job. The gap
depends on how big the column base is. The coordination is also better between
the concrete and steel contractors.
