RD Residential – Garden Studio

This project involved the construction of a timber-built garden studio in West London.

Screw piles were a preferred choice for the foundations, as the proposed location for the structure was at the base of a mature tree and in a tree root protection area.

The access to the site was also restricted allowing only hand held equipment to be used.

Both the customer and contractor for the build were new to screw piles and had been referred to us by their structural engineer, all the information was provided to each party and the system and method was approved.

The 60R product range was chosen due to the loading and the structure, and the unique 400H Hand Held anchor driver was chosen for the installation. The ground conditions varied across the site so additional extensions were used to achieve the required torque for the design load.

The foundations for the garden studio were successfully completed and the contractor was very happy with the service received:

“From start to completion ABC Anchors were a pleasure to deal with, very supportive, and easy to talk to when queries arose.  We would highly recommend both their products and service and will definitely be using them again for any piling needs we have.”

CLM – Ferry Bridge

Ferry Bridge is an historic suspension bridge in Burton on Trent which was in need of refurbishment work during October 2015.
In order to carry out the repairs to the bridge a scaffolding system was required to be set up to allow access for the contractors. The Scaffold system would rely on the screw piles to act as the full support. The loading on the anchors would be both the weight of the system and also the side loadings from the river current and any debris floating down stream.
