USING GROUND SCREWS ON YOUR TEMPORARY OR PERMANENT BUILDING PROJECT

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 our installations. Galvanised to BS EN ISO 1461:2009, these screws have a long life expectancy and 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-storey extensions to any building.

OUTBUILDINGS

Perfect for stand alone, single-storey 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

Ideal for material and equipment storage structures, temporary accommodations and site hoardings. Remove with no mess or fuss with minimal damage to site.

PERMANENT STORAGE STRUCTURES

Excellent foundation choice for car ports, garages and workshops. Begin building your structure immediately after install.

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 in choosing to use ground screw foundations for your building project. The ease of install, using handheld equipment or light plant, means there’s no need to undertake messy and disruptive groundworks on site. Our ground screw installations can also often be fully completed within one day and are ready to take load straight away, meaning valuable savings on your construction programme.

Ground screws provide a great foundation option for sloped, uneven or difficult to access sites, making erection of a structure possible in areas where the use of traditional foundations is prohibitive. We can complete installations in wooded areas, working around tree roots and other obstacles. Ground surveys and pre-installation load testing can be undertaken to determine the optimum screw length and layout for your ground conditions and site requirements.
