Why use ground screw foundations?
Ground screws are an innovative foundation solution that bypasses the need for traditional foundations like concrete and offer the perfect solution for projects on sloping, uneven ground or in hard-to-access areas.
As well as being more environmentally friendly, ground screws offer several benefits over concrete:
- no digging or excavation required
- no mess or damage to your site or the surrounding area
- ground screws are 70% faster to install than concrete – and you can build on them straight away
- we can install any time of the year, in any weather, without concerns of frost or rain delaying installation
Ground screws offer both permanent and temporary foundations for hard-to-access areas and sloping ground conditions and are an excellent choice in preservation areas. Here is a project we completed in the Cairngorms National Park.
Ground screws are also perfect for all sorts of commercial and private projects, offering a low-carbon alternative to concrete-based foundations that are not only better for the environment but they’re better for your pocket too.
Available in an extensive range of lengths and diameters, ground screws can achieve the desired load-bearing capacity in different ground conditions and to suit your application.
