Providing foundation solutions for transmission towers
Transmission towers are a vital part of the power supply infrastructure within the UK and when existing pylons are ungraded, there is the requirement to renew or install new foundations to support the existing superstructure.
We carry out site surveys to determine the size and depth of the existing foundation and take the findings in order to design a suitable solution. If we are able to retain the existing foundations these will be reinforced, otherwise we will develop a bespoke design.
Due to the location of the transmission towers, it is difficult to transport material to site, so we use all-steel solutions to reduce the requirement for wet works, which can cause great disruption to the local environment.
We are able to carry out these works with the tower remaining in place and no disruption to the electricity supply.
