Foundations of the three main building structures are all independent of each other will be designed to meet or exceed all local building codes. The foundation types are of typical industrial construction and are designed to support vertical and lateral building loads.

Foundations in the Auxiliary and Turbine Buildings follow the typical design for power plant installations with equipment independently supported on individual foundations and a building slab designed to support heavy loads.
Deep Foundation Type: Drilled shafts / driven piles
Shallow Foundation Type: Reinforced concrete footings
Slab Type: Reinforced concrete monolithic slab
Soil Load Bearing: <2,000 psf
