Bassett Road, London

Screw Piles

Located in Bussett Road, London, the owner of this property had concerns regarding the effects of the ground’s instability around the house.

Project Details:

Completion Date: September 2020

Project Type: Screw Piles

Location: Bassett Road, London

The Problem:

This residential property had its front area and lower ground floor sink due to subsidence which occurred as a result of the trees located on the public footpath in front of it. In these instances, subsidence occurs due to the trees which absorb moisture from the soil.

The Solution:

In order to repair the problem, we had to remove the steps going down to each side of the property and excavate along the front as a means to reach down low enough to where was needed. We then proceeded to install screw piles into the ground which were placed down to approximately 8 metres in depth – the depth at which we encountered firm sub strength. The screw piles were then connected to the existing property foundations with special bracketry. In between the screw piles, we cast a ground beam. In the same vein, we cast reinforced concrete in between the screw piles which spread the load and strengthened the work even further.
