Fortress Foundation System

The Fortress Foundation is our fully integrated, poured concrete building foundation designed to withstand mother nature's incredible hurricane forces. The Fortress Foundation is storm-proven to keep a house ready for immediate occupancy as soon as the storm passes. Tested by Hurricane Ike along the Texas Gulf Coast, homes built with our Fortress Foundation system survived the storm with minimal cosmetic damage.

Building to this higher standard requires experts in engineering knowledgeable in the effects of coastal flooding, building methods required to resist hurricane-force winds, and depth of knowledge of coastal floodplain regulations.  The engineering team for the Fortress Foundation is LCF Engineering Associates, a partnership of skilled engineering experts who know and practice high wind engineering and develop coastal flooding solutions for elevated coastal buildings. These partners are licensed Professional Engineers that have designed thousands of elevated buildings in coastal locations including those utilizing concrete foundations; they have helped write the wind engineering standards used in building design; they have developed solutions to difficult coastal foundation problems, and they have extensive practice in building to meet FEMA coastal construction regulations. There is no firm with stronger coastal foundation design experience than that provided by LCF Engineering Associates.
