We design, manufacture, supply, install and certify screw piers. These can be for a diverse range of building and construction projects, all the way to 200 tonne load bearing installations.
Steel Screw Piling is necessary for building foundations where the ground is not compacted, or strong enough or of variable capacity to carry the structure, for example in sand, mud or reclaimed land.
Steel screw piling is a deep foundation support system that transfers the weight of a building onto the stronger founding layer below. We can use screw piles for loads up to 200 tonnes and the length of the screw piers can exceed 20 metres.
To install them, we use an excavator with a power head and drive system designed by Russell Heale.
Steel Screw Piles offer significant advantages over other piling types. If your job specifies concrete or timber piles, we can quote the steel screw pile equivalent.
Our piles have been installed for many different applications and we have successfully completed many jobs around Australia in locations such as Port Kembla, Port Douglas, Portland (VIC), Ballina, Rockhampton, Townsville, Emerald and many other locations.
Our Principal Operator for pool installations is a highly experienced Excavator Operator for over 22 years in the housing industry, being licensed in both NSW and QLD.
by doing the excavation and pile installation with the one machine, saving additional delivery and standby costs. As well as offering an all in one process, he also has a generator welder which is permanently mounted on the truck and carries additional pile extensions in case they are required.
Russell Heale Group has completed numerous jobs using limited access machines and barges to deliver equipment. If you have a job where access is a problem, we are happy to do a site inspection to ensure you receive an accurate quote.
