Commercial Ground Screw Projects

A Trade Client to us is one that requires a reliable service at regular intervals. In return for repeat bookings our trade clients can expect to receive the most competitive price band to our full range of Load Testing Services and Ground Screws.

We also welcome one-off Trade projects for high quantities of Ground Screws or for the operated Hire of our Hydraulic Installation Driver, capable of installing 250 + Ground Screws per day and Higher Load capacity Ground screws.

Modular Build

The primary benefit of modular construction is time saving and faster return on investment. Since modular construction allows for industrialised assembly that happens concurrently with site preparation, the total time it takes to build a structure can be dramatically reduced.

Modular Structures can be a Pre fabricated assembly for swift, on site assembly. Others are built entirely off site and delivered complete then simply placed into their desired location. Some good examples of this are Shipping Containers, Welfare Units and Portakabins, with structural integrity usually factored in, they often incorporate landing legs or similar foundation points, perfect candidates for Ground Screw Foundations.

Commercial Structures

Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Construction.  Primarily Steel framed and traditionally bolted into Concrete Pad footings.  In this scenario a single Ground Screw, could replace 2-3 Tonnes of Concrete, can be installed in minutes, not days and has no negative impact on the environment.

The Larger, FIRST BASE 114mm Diameter Ground Screws can be load tested to suit the calculations of the structure and installed accordingly. For this type of Installation our Hydraulic Driver would be deployed, a 3T Tracked based machine and similarly sized to the equivalent weight Excavator.

Residential Housing

New Home Builders in the UK are now obliged to seek out more environmentally friendly solutions.  Our current rate of concrete consumption is not sustainable but it’s not going to be phased out overnight with the demand for new houses so high.

The use of Ground Screws with concrete is a huge stepping stone to lowering that consumption.  With similar fundamentals and purpose to the traditional concrete pile, Ground Screws can instead be used and better still we can supply comprehensive, site specific testing to ensure its performance.

Annexes

Sometimes referred to as the ‘Granny Annex’! Self contained living accommodation units, often built to ‘Mobile Home’ specification or to the ‘Caravan act’ to comply with minimal or no planning requirements.

Our foundation System is highly favourable to these types of structures in need of a low – impact foundation solution.  Ground Screw foundations are permanent and temporary.

"Maggie" Hydraulic Installation Driver

Hydraulic Installation Driver

Purpose built for us and Developed by FIRST BASE Ground Screws she is affectionately known as ‘MAGGIE’.

This machine opens up our Professional Installation Capacity for 3 main reasons:

  • Larger Quantity Installations: Maggie can easily install 250 + Ground Screws per day!

  • Larger Type / High Load Ground Screws: In a recent project we installed some 114mm Diameter Ground Screws and later tested them to withstand loads in excess of 100kN!  Maggie’s on board Computer and Live Torque Readout showed she was operating at just 25% capacity installing these ground screws, a great comfort to know she has much, much more to give.

  • Separate Rock Drilling Head: Beside the main driver head, Maggie has an additional Rock, Hammer Drilling head, with an inlet for compressed air she can blast through Ground types unsuitable for direct Ground Screw installation.
