Effective alternative to traditional foundations

Screw piles can be used for foundation connections of timber, steel or concrete. The connection detail varies depending on whether you want to connect to a concrete slab, bearer or post.

Once the pile locations have been determined by the engineer or builder, the installation of the piles is quick and easy. We can have the piles installed for a standard house in half a day. We will arrive once the pile locations have been marked out, unload and start installing. The piles are drilled in one or two meter extensions - there is no limit to the depth, just the Kn, and we will recored the Kn and depth of each pile for your records. 

The fixing to the top section of the pile (at ground level) can vary. It can be encapsulated into a concrete strip or small pile footing which the structure can then be bolted to, or have a connector attached allowing individual posts or joists to be fixed. This method does not necessarily require any excavation, and is ideal for sensitive sites where minimal disturbance to the ground and surrounds is permitted.
