Our installations are fully engineered on a project specific basis, factoring in local conditions.
Yes, a Ground Screw can be installed in any type of ground condition, including saturated soils like shore sides, marshlands or lake bottoms.
The BAYO.S Ground Screw features an engineered extendibility feature, that allows for on site length extension of the Ground Screw shaft. This allows the Ground Screw to be installed deeper, until the required ground resistance has been achieved and a stable foundation support has been created.
The BAYO.S system also features add on helical blades that can be utilized in extremely wet conditions, providing additional compressive strength in weak soils.
In our daily operations, we service the GTA, Simcoe, Muskoka, Haliburton, Peterborough, Dufferin, Gray, Parry Sounds, Manitoulin, Cochrane, Thunder Bay, Northumberland, Lennox & Addington, Hastings, Prince Edward & Vancouver Island.
The main difference lies in the threading mechanism. The Ground Screw features continuous fine threading much like a woodscrew, while a helical pile features a large helical blade as found on an auger.
The Ground Screw forms a tight bond with the surrounding material and does not disrupt the soils natural strength, therefore achieving foundation stability with much less required soil penetration.
The Ground Screw will try to go the path of least resistance and try to work around smaller roots without much obstruction or deflection. Should a larger root be encountered close to a large tree, it may be possible that the Ground Screw will be refused.
