CMU Piers Concrete Masonry Units
(CMU) are modular concrete blocks that can be stacked to the required height. The CMU piers, which bear on a continuous concrete footing, are reinforced with vertical rebar and grout. Anchor bolts are cast into the top of the pier to securely fasten the fl oor system to the foundation. CMU piers should only be used for houses elevated less than a full story.
