Screwpiles are often specified for these structures simply because of speed of installation and economics. Structure installations may be in challenging locations or poor grounds or subjected to high wind loads. There is no other foundation system that can compete with screwpiles with respect to the versatility, speed of installation, none-disruptive eco-sensitivity and cost effectiveness.
Renowned sculpture artist and bronze figure casting expert Mr Charles Smith along with renowned consulting structural engineer Mr John Colley have engaged Screwpile Australia on a number of occasions to design and install screwpiles to support their sculpture projects in locations of loose soils and high wind regions.
Projects such as:
Multi-Story Apartments with Basement
This new Psaros development in Highgate required tanking of an underground basement carpark. The site needed to be sheetpiled and have over 85 combined 500kN SWL compression/tension screwpiles to cater for the hydrostatic uplift and construction loads. The tension component of the piling was to prevent the basement from lifting once the dewatering was turned off and the next construction phases commenced. Compression loads would develop as construction continued.
