Has anyone dealt with a printing press foundation before? I know this is way beyond the scope of this forum but I am just taking a chance that someone has dealt with these and know if the presses require detailed dynamic foundation design or whether they run smooth enough where the design for the static load is adequate.

I have a situation where the press is used and is coming from Scotland (the country) and the work is being coordinated through a company from Manilla. Therefore the communications with this company have been between the contractor (local concrete guy) and them via telephone calls and I have nothing written. I have asked for more information and am awaiting it but thus far all I know is that the Heidelberg 4 color sheet fed press weighs 54,000 pounds and they plan to put it on a 12" 10' x 42' pad of concrete...I have no idea thus far if this is on legs or transfers its loads uniformly.

Again, just a stab in the dark that someone reading this has dealt with these and can tell me how much concern to have.
