The Groundscrew Foundation System
Metal groundscrews reduce the demand for concrete by providing an alternative to concrete and driven pile footings. They are installed quickly thanks to their threaded design, and can be installed in challenging soil conditions without the need for digging. Once installed, infrastructure can be immediately installed—an advantage over concrete, which requires time to cure. Through used most often in solar installations, this technology is increasingly being used in large-scale construction projects. Another major advantage of this product is its reversability, reusability, and recyclability.
The metal composition of threaded ground screw allows for reuse or recycling after the life cycle of the construction.
