Supply and installation of ground screw foundations for two bespoke off-grid cabins in the Scottish Borders.
The Scottish Borders, Scotland
53 nr. RADIX EXT 89 Ground Screws
Bespoke Secure Fittings
No More Digging Scotland
This project required access over rough grounds within a remote location of the Scottish Borders. Additionally, it needed all materials and installation equipment to be transported by hand to each plot.
Ground conditions were made of peat formations, requiring ground screws to be installed to greater depths of between 3.1m and 4.1m across both plots to achieve good load-bearing capacity and stability.
Ground screws were installed using our portable handheld turning machines, offering the flexibility and capacity to install each cabin’s foundations to the required depths in this remote location without disruption to the surrounding landscape.
The client was able to begin building the bespoke off-grid cabins immediately after the successful installation of the foundations.
Plot One: 29 RADIX 89mm Extendable Ground Screws were installed to a depth of 3.1m
Plot Two: 24 RADIX 89mm Extendable Ground Screws were installed to a depth of 4.1m
