Top Things to Expect When Having a Screw Pile Foundation Installed

Industrial & Manufacturing Blog

You might be having a construction project completed, and you might want to be a big part of the entire process. For example, now that the foundation is being installed, you might want to know what is going on all throughout. Of course, what you should expect will depend primarily on the type of foundation that is being installed. If you are having a screw pile foundation installed — which is a common choice when a deep foundation is needed, such as if the soil quality is not ideal or if the structure that is being built is big and heavy — then these are some of the things that you should expect.

The Process Should Go Pretty Quickly

You might have heard that it takes a while for foundations to be installed. This might be something that you are worried about since you might be hoping that your construction project will be completed as quickly as possible. The good news is that screw pile foundations are actually typically installed pretty quickly, as long as the crew that is installing the screw piles knows what they are doing and has the right equipment on hand for the job.

Installation Might Be Done on Soggy and Wet Soil

If your building site currently has saturated, wet soil — such as if your area has just gotten a lot of rain — then you might assume that the foundation installation process will be delayed because of it. However, you should know that screw pile foundations are often installed on wet soil, so this shouldn't put off your project getting started or completed at all.

The Property Probably Won't Look as Messy as You Think

You might assume that if you visit your building site while the screw pile foundation is being installed that you will see big piles of dirt and other big messes everywhere on the property. Big messes are common with some foundation installation types, but you shouldn't have to worry about your property is a big mess at all when the installation is being done. This is because this is one foundation installation method that actually causes as little site disturbance as possible. As you can probably imagine, this is better for the environment, and it can make landscaping the property a whole lot easier after the building project has been completed.

If you're new to screw pile foundation installations, then you might not know what to expect. Keep the things above in mind, and you will know a little more about what to expect during the process.

John's Industrial and Manufacturing Blog

Welcome to my piece of the internet. My name is John, and I imagine you found this blog while looking for information about industrial or manufacturing concepts. I recently decided to start this blog because I needed somewhere that I could share my research. I recently moved to a small town, and I'm trying to attract factory owners to set up shop there. As a result, I have done an immense amount of research into these fields. I figure the more I know the easier it will be to pitch our town to business owners. Anyway, this blog is a separate project to that. It's just a space where I want to share tips and ideas related to manufacturing. I love writing, and I hope that you enjoy reading my posts. More importantly, I hope they help you make your business more productive. Thanks for reading!
