At Screwpile, we use a combination of helical piles and a specially designed series of brackets to quickly and efficiently underpin any building that has subsided. As an additional feature in some instances the bracket can jack up the building to its original position.
We have underpinned modern walls and older masonry walls up to1200mm thick using this method
New Builds, Renovations and Extensions
Screwpile provides very competitive solutions to piling for one-off or indeed to housing estates. We recommend that piles in any form should be used rather than rafts or strip footings to provide a permanent solution and avoid any expensive geotechnical problems
Power, Rail and Telecoms
Screwpile has extensive experience in the use of helical piles on contracts for Irish Rail. Since 2016, we have used helical piles as a suitable alternative to CFA piles, electricity pylons and telecom masts
Helical piles have extensive uses in commercial applications particularly piling in restricted access locations or where programme is accelerated.
Screwpiles are uniquely suited to temporary works situations in particular props for retaining structures,they are now being used in areas where contaminated soils are an issue due to the fact that they do not produce bore spoil and thus eliminate the costs associated with the containment and disposal of same.
