We are able to accommodate up to 6″ screw pile foundation solutions, in addition to providing custom engineered designs and stamped drawings, we also custom manufacture helical piles and install the piles. The main benefits of screwpile foundations include: shorter project times, ease of installation, ease of access, reduction of the carbon footprint, ease of removal when the foundations are no longer required, reduced risk to the workforce, and reduced costs.
Screw piles also called Helical piles, are a steel screw-in piling and ground anchoring system used for building deep foundations. The pile shaft transfers a structure’s load into the pile. Helical steel plates are welded to the pile shaft in accordance with the intended ground conditions. Helices can be press-formed to a specified pitch or simply consist of flat plates welded at a specified pitch to the pile’s shaft. Many industries use screwpile foundations due to the cost efficiencies and – increasingly – the reduced environmental impact. ‘Screwing’ the foundations in the ground means that there is less soil displacement so excess soil does not need to be transported from the site, saving on transportation costs and reducing the carbon footprint of the project.
