Design and installation of pile foundations

Recently the construction of grain elevators and granaries on ground screws has become widespread. Since ground screws for grain elevators can be installed anywhere even on slopes and wetlands this choice is the best solution for the construction of a stable and reliable foundation.
The foundation for grain elevators on ground screws guarantees the stability of the whole structure, does not sink in and is not sensitive of the ground movement. The foundation for elevators on ground screws is a very good choice for “extreme” construction on moving and water-saturated soils.
The foundation for grain elevators on ground screws has many advantages:
One ground screw is installed in up to 15 minutes. You can start the construction of the building immediately after finishing with ground screws. Foundation of the house on the ground screws does not require shrinkage, because after screwing up the soil is compacted and as a result the soil is capable of supporting the weight of the house.
The possibility of mounting on sites with a complex landscape or on a slope, where the concrete foundation requires enormous labor and financial costs.
It is possible to install the foundation within several days. Involvement of complex construction equipment and excavation as concrete works are not required.
Galvanized piles are practically not corroded, which allows its use in water-saturated soils and even in reservoirs.
Installation of the ground screw foundation is carried out using a mode, in which there remains a minimum of construction waste at the end of the work.
Compared to strip foundations, the pouring of it in winter time requires additional costs bound on thermal insulation of concrete. The installation of ground screws can be done in the normal operating mode.
In order to get optimal solution for the construction of the foundation the customer must provide a geological survey of the site and provide a construction project. Considering these data experts make conclusions about the properties of the soil and the loads of the future construction.
Based on the data obtained our engineers prepare a calculation of the required number of screws and the distance between them, as well as the depth of it’s immersion. Depending on the collected loads for the foundation of the house, the optimal diameter and required length for ground screws are selected.
Screw foundations for low-rise buildings are installed in a short time. Depending on the complexity of the object, there are three options for screwing in: manual, electromechanical and hydraulic. After the ground screws have been installed at the required in design depth, the headstrap is strapped.
