    Default Concrete Guys - How Much for a Pad?

    Hey guys, a little help here.

    How much would it be for a 40'X60' concrete pad for a steel building (the DIY type buildings).

    Any rough ideas?

    Your going to need a footing as well as a pad depending on the building you choose.

    I just recently priced some concrete out here for a pad for my shop. Not sure how much different concrete prices are on the west coast, but I can tell you what I found out.

    A yard of concrete covers 80 square feet at 3 inches deep. Concrete prices here ranged from $90 to $110 per yard, some with other fees added on. A 40x60 pad is 2400 square feet, so you would need around 30 yards of concrete (about $2700 - $3300) not including footings and labor for any grading or finish work.

    Monolith foundation work here is between 3.75-4.25 a square foot. That includes set up, and material. That does not include any additional fill that may be needed or the use of a pumper. Thats for 2400psi crete.

    Standard slabs are 4" thick.

    Depending on what the building is used for, slab might need to be 6" thick. Also turndown footing along sides might be required for structural support of the columns. Find out what the building manufacture requires or have it engineered. Also check local codes as they might require more than the building manufacture.

    Permitted or not lags need to be in a footing or the first big wind and the buildings gone.

    What area are you in? Here in So Cal the new codes require 2' deep min footing without soils report. That would put you at about 42 yards. I would say 15 to 20 grand(no grading). I hear that concrete in the IE is going for as low as $85 per yard.

    The slab and footings we are doing for the wineries go for around $7.00 a sq foot. Probably a little more than what you need due to the forklift traffic.

    The building manufacture is going to tell you he will not warranties his building unless you have an engineer design the footings and I would go no less than 6 in slab if you are planing on vehicles being on it. $6.00 to $7.00 a sq ft would be close if done right.
