Ground Sun installed 8 screw pile foundations for this extension where there was restricted access, poor ground conditions and many tree roots in the area. Handheld machinery was used and the piling was completed in one day. Ground Sun also installed pile caps, steel grillage and beam and block floor – all completed in 5 days.
Without screw piles traditional strip foundations would have been required at circa 2.7m deep. Driven piles may have damaged the many buildings in the area and it was simply not possible to get a traditional larger piling rig on to site. Screw piles were a perfect solution and saved our client circa 3 weeks on the programme whilst saveing thousands of pounds as well
