Ground Sun installed 46 screw piles in a white city terraced house basement, an extreme example of the restricted access Ground Sun are capable of installing this foundation system in.
Previously Ground Sun were contracted with the installation of underpinning screw pile foundations to support the building during the digging out of the basement.
The client wanted to maximize the size of his basement on his small London plot, Ground Sun’s screw pile solution enabled the basement to be dug to the same footprint as the rest of the property. Pictured below are the piles, exposed after the excavation, supporting the building. Here you can see that Ground Sun’s solid steel piles can support the wait of a building whilst exposed. This wouldn’t necessarily be the case for hollow piles.
