Subject: QUESTION re: Grouting Equipment bases

1) Do you do foundations for equipment such as pumps, compressors, engines, vessels, etc.?
2) Do these typically feature grouting of some arbitary space between the base of the equipment (base plate, base angle, base frame, etc.) and the foundation?
3) Are you responsible for instructions for the people doing that grouting, and how do you instruct them if so?
An argument between a colleague and myself is pending.
