USING GROUND SCREWS ON YOUR TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT BULDING PROJECT

TEMPORARY FOUNDATIONS FOR TEMPORARY & PERMANENT BUILDING PROJECTS

Helical ground screws can provide strong and stable foundations for a wide range of temporary and permanent buildings. Their high point load of over 75kN per screw allows them to provide a comparable, if not superior foundation to traditional concrete and their ease of install can help you get your project off the ground quickly and more cost effectively.

We use RADIX professional ground screws for all installations, galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461: 2009 giving them a long life expectancy, they provide a high load bearing capacity perfect for building foundations.

There are numerous applications for helical ground screws within your next building project.

USE GROUND SCREWS IN YOUR NEXT BUILDING PROJECT FOR:

EXTENSIONS

Great quick and easy sustainable foundations for single story extensions to any building.

OUTBUILDINGS

Perfect for stand alone single story outbuilding structures such as chalets, cabins and lodges.

PLATFORMS

Secure foundations for raised ground floor platforms, balconies and terraces, great on sloped sites.

TEMPORARY STRUCTURES

Such as material and equipment storage, temporary accommodations and site hoardings, remove with no mess or fuss with minimal damage to site.

PERMANENT STORAGE STRUCTURES

Such as car ports, garages and workshops, simply install ground screws and begin building your structure on top same day.

OFFICE AND STUDIO SPACE

Great foundations for that new garden office, private art space or even a spa or hot tub space.

There are multiple benefits to using ground screws as foundations for your project, the most attractive being their ease of install; there’s no need to undertake messy and intrusive groundwork or formwork before install. Speed of install is another benefit to using helical ground screws as foundations, ground screws are ready to take load straight after installation, meaning you can continue with your project without having to wait for concrete to cure.

Ground screws are also great foundation alternatives on a sloped uneven site, or a site that is difficult to access, making erection of a structure possible in areas where concrete foundations are extremely expensive or unable to cover the whole ground.

Unlike concrete foundations, ground screws can be installed in heavily wooded areas and with ground surveys can be installed missing any tree roots.
