The mining and resources boom in Australia has seen an explosion in the modulated transportable building industry.
For 14 years Screwpile Australia has been designing, manufacturing and installing cost effective foundation and tie down ground anchoring systems for mining camps and accommodation villages throughout Australia and overseas.
Today these buildings are manfactured in a number of ways; prefabricated stud wall buildings, flat packs and converted sea containers. Typically these buildings are between 20' (7.2m) to 40' (14.4m) in length. Buildings are manufactured locally and imported from Thailand and China. Some seatainer frame based modules are now designed for double story construction in cyclonic regions.
All can be modulated to create complex facilities such as a kitchen mess, gyms and laundries. Foundation engineering will take into consideration the wind region and terrain catagory applicable for the location.
Screwpile Australia provides a turnkey approach to design supply installation and engineering certification for cyclonic tie down ground anchor foundations that are simply faster, reusable and more cost effective that any other ground anchoring method. Our expetise goes back to when we supplied screwpiles for the first mining accommodation village camp located in Wedgefield, Port Hedland which was constructed by NOMAD for P&O Catering. Since then we have provided expert advice and solutions for all kinds of remote camps and housing needs throughout Australia and South East Asia.
Screwpile Australia's patent pending Qwik-Connect bracket between the buildings sub-floor beams and the screwpile is the fastest method of connecting and disconnect buildings to screwpiles. Combined with its patent pending Qwik-Loc installation system contractors are supplied with a system that has economic and speed advantages beyond compare.
One important overall foundation design consideration is the future decommissioning costs associated with camp and village accommodation building removal. The decommissioning costs for buildings that are on mass concrete or bored concrete piles are significantly higher than those that are installed on our screwpile system.
Our foundation system provides for easy and simple decommissioning. Buildings connected to our screwpiles with our QWIK-Connect clamping system can be unbolted and removed in less than 15 minutes and foundation removal takes less than one hour.
