Angus Glens, Scotland
Holiday Glamping Pod Foundations
Site Survey and Load Testing, Ground Screw Installation
30 no. RDX PRO RF140 76mm Ground Screws with Secure Fittings
The location for this project is situated within the Angus Glens, and it was essential to maintain the natural rolling landscape with minimal damage and disruption to the environment.
Three glamping pods were to be situated on the elevated ground, meaning it was critical secure fixings would withstand the windy conditions that the valleys of rural Scotland frequently experience. Installation was to be completed in the winter when weather conditions can be a further challenge.
Site Survey & Load Testing
Our team completed a site visit to determine the ground composition for each glamping pod and liaised closely with the glamping pod manufacturer to determine the appropriate location for ground screws to support the main load-bearing points.
Ground Screw Installation
Thirty RDX PRO RF140 76mm ground screws in 1250mm and 1550mm lengths were installed with a range of adapter plates to provide robust platforms for the glamping pods prior to their delivery. All without digging or damaging the landscape.
Each pod was hoisted onto their level foundations on arrival without any delay and securely fastened, all ready for their first visitors.
