Screw Piles in London

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

Solutions: 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.
