Today we’re launching our new cast helix to further enhance our off the shelf residential screw pier. Our R&D team and engineers have spent the last 12 months researching and testing the helix. The new helix has increased the capacity of the residential screw piers by more than 20% with a designed capacity of 85kN.
In May 2014 we began work on the amenities building for Australand Property Group who are redeveloping the Ashlar Golf Course in the Blacktown NSW. The development called Fairwater is planned to build approximately 1100 homes. Ideal Foundations worked with Australand to develop a fixed price solution for the project. With the project now under the new brand of Frasers Property Australiain we’re in full swing installing screw piers. To find out more visit http://www.frasersproperty.com.au/NSW/Fairwater.
In 2010 Ideal Corp assisted Spantec (one of the owners of Ideal Corp) in helping a family in Penrith NSW on the TV show Domestic Blitz. We completed a geotechnical investigation and supplied & installed screw piers to support an elevated Boxspan steel floor frame for a granny flat.
For those who remember the channel 9 show, it was hosted by Scott Cam and Shelly Craft. We think Scotty was pretty impressed with what we did on the show because he decided to get us to install our screw piers raised out of the ground to support a bearer and joist floor for his house in Mudgee – his new country escape.
