Ground Screw Foundations

For the garden room foundations, atHome uses ground screws which are a low carbon alternative to concrete, with a raised timber-framed cassette floor on top. The beauty of our system is that it makes it simple to level an uneven site - so no digging or groundwork is required beforehand. 

Ground screws offer a complete foundation solution that provides a strong, level base for our projects. As well as taking less time to install than traditional concrete foundations, ground screws provide the following benefits to our customers:

  • Install on sloping and uneven ground
  • Install in hard-to-access and off-grid areas
  • Install any time of the year, in any weather
  • No mess. No damage. No concrete

Concrete is the 2nd highest, most consumed substance on Earth after water and 10% of carbon emissions is a result of cement production globally. RADIX and No More Digging have developed a foundation system that provides a low carbon alternative to concrete. Ground screws use fewer resources and cause less damage to the environment. They also make hard-to-access areas accessible, with minimal impact, damage or disruption to the environment. 

The ground screws are made of strong, structural steel, galvanized to BS EN ISO 1461: 2009 for long-lasting protection and life expectancy. They are also designed for load resistance tested to BS EN ISO 6892-1:2016 - perfect for garden room constructions.
