All of our spaces use screw piles as the foundation system. Screw piles are a steel screw-in piling system used for building deep foundations, making them a suitable foundation system for majority of soil types and landscapes including sloping sites. Screw piles have a reduced environmental impact because they are ‘screwed’ directly into the ground meaning there is less soil displacement. They are also able to be easily removed if you ever decide to move your Space!
