Among many materials that help in construction, screw piles also take an important place. It helps to make foundations strong. Using this material become cost effective and environment friendly. Screw piles installation reduces displacement of soil, this helps the environment, plus it helps savings on soil transportation cost, which in turn reduces the number of trucks on the streets which produces harmful gasses such as Carbon monoxide. Thereby we are contributing towards the protection against environmental pollution by making a awesome choice to install screw piles and in a way we are participating in the project of reducing carbon footprint.
Other material used for pilling:
Concrete piers are another material that is used to strengthen foundation to the ground. These products are mainly used to construct wooden decks. This is achieved through pouring liquid concrete into the holes to the ground. The weight that underlying soil can hold determines the number and the size of the piers. The standard design load in the International Residential code is assumed to be 40 pounds.
Benefits of using screw piles in commercial constructions:
Depending on the stratum of the soil and the pile load, cost savings can be calculated. The screw piles performances are equal to the performance of concrete or grout piles. But cost wise screw piles have a better advantage, especially depending on the load; for examples, when the piles intended to be installed in unstable or water charged grounds. Screw piles installation is comparatively faster when compared with other types of piles. Further this kind pile rigs do not need a working platform. Considering all these benefits, it is advisable to use screw piles in problematic sites such as filled land, water saturated or charged soils, deep sands and low head height areas, which gives greater cost benefits.
Consult the experts in the field:
Experienced contractors dealing with screw piles are exactly aware of all contributing factors before they suggest the solution. So it is always advisable to meet with them and understand the requirement and then decide on the installation plan. Agents who have many number of years’ experience will know how to do a clean job and delivery on time as per agreement. These experts work together with Engineers who advise them on the designs and the construct character. So meet with your piling contractor as soon as possible so that your constructions get completed on timeAs we are living on this earth, each one of us is responsible towards protecting it. So lets’ start doing whatever we can, and be a part of the sustainable environment. Try and avoid using material that consumes more energy and resources and use products that have an environmental advantage.
