Caisson Foundations Drilled in stable soil, no shoring required, filled with reinforced concrete. Add for belled bottoms, if required, from the following section. Equipment includes a truck-mounted A-frame hoist and a power operated auger and a concrete pump. Concrete is based on using 3,000 PSI pump mix delivered to the job site in ready-mix trucks and includes a 5% allowance for waste. Spiral caisson reinforcing is based on using 3/8" diameter hot rolled steel spirals with main vertical bars as shown, shop fabricated, delivered ready to install, with typical engineering and drawings. Costs for waste disposal are not included. Refer to Construction Materials Disposal section and add for same. Use $15,000 as a minimum charge, including 200 LF of reinforced concrete filled caissons and cost for moving the equipment on and off the job.
