Our specialist teams can support you during and ahead of planning applications.
By attending and completing site investigations and site-specific ground tests, we can provide empirical data to determine the ground screw specifications and confirm load-bearing capacities to meet your project requirements.
With capabilities to record compression values up to 200kN and tensile forces up to 120kN per helical screw pile, we can either test to achieve the required loads as specified by your engineers per helical screw pile or test to failure if the required loads are not yet known.
Ground screws can be tested on-site for compression, vertical uplift, and horizontal load-bearing capacities to engineers' specifications and to EN 1997-1 (EC7), deploying ground screws of various diameters and lengths specific to project requirements.
At RADIX, our technicians carry out tests using our range of precise site testing equipment.
Site-specific tests include recording load-bearing values while carefully taking measurements of the fluctuation in the ground screw. Values are transferred to a digital graph for reference, delivered within a comprehensive report outlining typical ground conditions and highlighting any issues to report for subsequent sign-off by the project engineer.
