Overcoming access issues with low-impact, portable equipment
This project sits within a remote location of the Scottish Borders. With access limited and over rough ground, all materials and installation equipment required transporting to each plot by hand.
Ground conditions were made of peat formations, resulting in ground screw installation to greater depths of between 3.1m and 4.1m across both the plots to achieve good load-bearing capacity and stability.
Achieving load-bearing depths with minimal impact
All ground screws were installed with the deployment of our portable handheld turning machines, offering the flexibility and capacity to install each cabin's foundations to the required depths in this remote location without disruption to the surrounding landscape.
- Plot 1: 29 no. RDX EXT V3 89mm extendable ground screws were installed to a depth of 3.1m
- Plot 2: 24 no. RDX EXT V3 89mm extendable ground screws were installed to a depth of 4.1m
The building of the bespoke off-grid cabins commenced immediately on the successful installation of the foundations, each plot completed in one day.
