Partners, Red Leaf Group, are taking advantage of RADIX Screw Piles to secure renewable energy projects across the UK and significantly reduce programme times.
Bespoke galvanised platforms were designed, manufactured and installed by Red Leaf Group, with each 12m platform holding up to 10 tonnes of equipment.
Delivered in a turnkey solution and with the efficiency benefits of our screw pile foundations, Red Leaf Group completed the project in just seven days, cutting the project’s programme length by 60% compared to the carbon-heavy and weather-dependent alternative of concrete.

In addition to the various battery energy storage systems and solar arrays Red Leaf Group has delivered, their expert teams have successfully completed the installation of specialist foundations on RADIX Screw Piles for a 60-tonne transformer, allowing for its connection within the tight programme of work.
We supplied the 15 RADIX PRO RF220 114mm Screw Piles that were specified for the project following load-testing and structural calculations, which Red Leaf Group installed without delay to provide robust foundations for the bespoke structural steel platform and transformer to be secured.
As well as being the efficient foundation solution, our screw piles offer a low-carbon alternative to concrete, with less than 50% of the embodied carbon in steel screw piles than a comparative concrete base.
With 10% of the world’s carbon emissions coming from cement production, RADIX Screw Piles are saving more than time and money. They’re changing the foundations of construction and positively impacting our environment.
