Ground Screws for Building & Deck in South London

This project was entrusted to a local builder with clear specifications outlining the imperative need for the structure to adhere to building regulations and undergo stringent building control scrutiny. To ensure compliance with these standards, we initiated a comprehensive ground screw test as a crucial first step in the construction process. The primary objective was to accurately determine the optimal positioning of the screws, taking into account the specific load-bearing requirements for the type of ground on which the building was to be erected.

By conducting the ground screw test, we aimed to obtain precise data that not only aligned with building regulations but also provided a reliable foundation for subsequent construction phases. The test results served as a crucial reference point, offering a readout that unequivocally demonstrated compliance with building control standards. This outcome not only reassured the builder about the structural integrity of the project but also instilled confidence in the client, emphasising the commitment to delivering a secure and regulation-compliant structure.

It is worth noting that the request for adherence to building control specifications was particularly pertinent in this case, as the intended usage of the building and deck involved regular occupancy as a residence. Recognising the importance of ensuring the safety and longevity of the structure, our team meticulously marked out the ground screws based on the loadings determined through the test. This meticulous process was executed with efficiency, as the entire procedure, from conducting the ground screw test to marking out the screws according to loadings, was successfully completed within a single day.

In summary, our conscientious approach to the ground screw test not only facilitated compliance with building regulations and control requirements but also expedited the construction process, allowing for a swift progression to subsequent phases of the project. The efficiency and accuracy demonstrated in the execution of this crucial step provide both the builder and the client with the assurance that the completed structure meets the highest standards of safety and regulatory compliance, ensuring its suitability for regular residential use.
