Steel Panel Foundations Signs Licensing Agreement with Leading Northeast Contractor.

Sanford Contracting Will Employ Steel Panel Foundations In Its Building Projects

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Steel Panel Foundations and Sanford Contracting today announced a licensing agreement to manufacture and produce Steel Panel Foundations' innovative end-to-end steel foundation system, the alternative to conventional cement foundations. Steel Panel Foundations will provide Sanford Contracting with the technology to construct the steel foundation system in its residential and light commercial building projects.

The agreement will provide opportunities for Sanford Contracting to install the Steel Panel Foundations system in its steel framing building projects in the Northeast. A leader in the steel framing construction and finishing, Sanford Contracting will integrate the Steel Panel Foundations system, which employs modular, water-tight construction and enables builders and developers to construct watertight basement foundations year-round in less time and at lower cost than conventional cement foundations.

"Sanford Contracting has clearly been in the forefront of installing sustainable steel building and construction techniques and materials," said Chuck Forner, chief product manager for Steel Panel Foundations. "We look forward to a successful relationship in integrating the Steel Panel Foundations system into Sanford Contracting's wide range of residential and commercial steel building applications."

"We are pleased that Steel Panel Foundations will be a key element of Sanford Contracting's growing number of renewable steel building projects," said John Palange, vice president for Sanford Contracting. "This agreement will answer the demand for a foundation system that can be quickly and cost-effectively installed year-round in an environmentally-friendly way."

As part of the agreement, Sanford Contracting will be fabricating the Steel Panel Foundation system components and assembling the system at installed building sites. The materials are made from 16-gauge studs for load-bearing walls and meets all foundation-bearing pressures. Its 16-inch on-center construction is fastened into the concrete footing. It is coated with polyurea for additional moisture resistance and is easily adaptable to meet various wall configurations, full load-bearing walls, daylight walls, frost walls, bridge-ledge walls, interior walls and multiple-above ground configurations.

Because Steel Panel Foundations is dry, there is no waiting for curing to take place and installation can take place year-round.
