The development of sewer screw piles in 1996 by Screwpile Australia created a quite revolution in the way buildings & structures foundations were piled within WaterCorp easements.  Prior to then concrete piles were the norm.  Sewer screwpiles eliminate inherant construction problems associated with concrete piles such as, high water-tables, hole collapse and caverning, and hard ground penetration, all resulting in difficulties to achieving the minimum specified pile depth to below the sewers invert level.

Screw Pile Boardwalk Install - Swan River Foreshore - Garvey Park, Ascot

Garvey Park foreshore on the Swan River, Ascot in Western Australia is currently undergoing an enhancement program.  Part of the improvements include new steel fabricated walkways & a beach deck ramp for the boating/kayaking club.  Foundation Engineering was asked to come up with a pile design that would deliver practical installation as the shoreline consisted of very loose-sandy-peaty mud.
