Posted about 6+ months ago when I only had 94 State code violations … can link you to them on another site if you like. Lots of Structural issues that I believe are due to a flexing foundation that ALMOST is out of code itself. Slab is post-tension, 54’ x 40’, and last measure w/Compu-Level put one portion at 1.6" above center of home. I have edge-lift front and back, stair-stepped crack on exterior, 5 of 13 interior doors either won’t shut at all or won’t latch once shut. Going thru “SIRP” process, towards the end and the Lawyer that LENNAR/NuHome has hired is denying a LOT. I have no reason to believe (9 others in this new addition with similar problems, others we haven’t heard from yet as well) that the Builder will stand behind their product at this point.](*,)
My current question:
Engineer that designed the slab stated on printout:
PVR + 1-4" Plasticity index is 50 (“Q” at 5000)??
I know that plasticity index is mega huge, the slab is approved via plan to be 4" thick with perimeter 24" deep. This is not a pier/beam but a post-tension. I can see the sag in my exterior brick courses on the east and west walls, etc.
Does that slab sound like it is properly engineered (4"??) for this type soil? :shock:
