The area of ground for this site’s installation is subject to heavy waterlogging and is regularly saturated. We needed to contend with varying ground levels up to 550mm, including a large dip in the middle of the site.
A short programme of works was required to ensure a rapid resolve and installation, with minimum disruption for our client.
A pre-installation survey was completed, with site-specific testing to check load-bearing capacities. To contend with the ground levels and saturated ground, a range of our 1.5m and 2.0m long ground screws were deployed to ensure a stable, level foundation was created, penetrating deep enough to meet with the performance requirements.
Installation was completed in five working days, ready for Solar PV panels to be installed without delay.
