I AM WANTING TO ERECT A 30X50 METAL BARN/WORKSHOP. HOW THICK DOES THE SLAB NEED TO BE? I WILL BE PARKING A SMALL TRACTOR AND A CREW CAB TRUCK IN IT. OTHER THAN THAT, JUST SHOP EQUIPMENT AND TOOLS. ALSO, WHAT ABOUT PARAMETER BEAMS, HOW THICK & HOW WIDE. SHOULD THERE BE BEAMS DOWN THE CENTER OF THE SLAB AS WELL?

There are too many factors involved in slab design to give specific guidance on your project. The best thing to do is order this publication about home and farm concrete by the Portland Cement Association: Farm and Home Concrete
