Pier Plans and recommendations

I plan to install a pier soon, to support my 10” LX200, with a structure of sorts to cover the entire assembly. I have a friend with all the necessary equipment to fabricate the pier, so I am looking for plans/guidelines suitable for my needs (cement pad dimensions, metal thickness, etc.). The possibility of using a larger scope is highly possible, so I do want to build the pier to accommodate the larger SCT.

Also, I will be using the Meade Super wedge.

Thanks for all your help.
