SCOTS FIRM REVOLUTIONISES CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
A company focused on developing low-carbon alternatives to concrete claims its new products will change the face of the construction industry.
Dundee-based RADIX is the largest manufacturer, stockist and supplier of UK ground screws, boasting unrivalled construction, engineering and manufacturing knowledge and expertise.
Whether a holiday park or a housing development, foundations present the most significant time and cost constraints of any construction project.
RADIX’s range of ground screws and structural base systems deliver a robust and low-carbon alternative to concrete foundations, providing substantial environmental, financial and operational benefits.
With installation possible all year round, in any weather, ground screws prevent costly and timely delays.
They are ideal for hard-to-access and off-grid areas, over sloping and uneven ground. They are also the perfect solution for agricultural ground and remote, rural landscapes.
In the last twelve months, RADIX has supplied around 20,000 ground screws across the UK, providing foundations for everything from garden rooms and holiday lodges to house extensions and modular homes.
RADIX is also in talks with a local authority considering swapping concrete for ground screws for an ambitious social housing development project.
The company is now expanding and moving into new 3,000 square foot premises in Dundee, accommodating dedicated office space for its growing team.
Managing Director, Callum Milne, states RADIX is on a mission to challenge the status quo of traditional construction methods.
He said: “Ground screws offer a more efficient and sustainable alternative to concrete, by avoiding the need for excavation, mess and delays.
“They’re a real game-changer and set to transform the face of construction across the UK.
“Our team has spent significant time working with our partners on the research and development of our ground screws, including independent testing and verification.
“We are now seeing the demand from countless sectors over the country. “With years of technical knowhow and manufacturing expertise at our fingertips, we are preparing to innovate further, allowing construction projects across the UK to up their game and build faster, with less mess, cost and disruption.”
