Ground Screws for Glamping and Events

Low impact foundationsBased in the West Country, with a network of regional installation partners, FIRST BASE Ground Screws UK is a young and fast-growing company supplying bespoke, instantly loadable foundations for modular and steel/timber framed constructions such as lodges, pods, staging and tent/awning anchors, even on heavily sloping ground.

New for 2022, FIRST BASE has introduced its PRO-V series of extendable screws to the UK market, which are perfect for poor ground conditions, sand and areas prone to high moisture content. The recent collaboration in the Netherlands on the Marker Wadden nature reserve created screw foundations for timber-framed accommodation buildings, standing on sand, clay and silt extracted from the Markermeer. Closer to home, FIRST BASE is currently supplying screw pile foundations and project support for eight eco-lodges around a lake near York, among many other projects.

Ground screws offer a simple and cost-effective alternative to concrete bases, with many sustainability benefits too. Installed in minutes, they cause minimal disruption or vibration to soil structure, and tree roots just grow around them. If structures ever need to be moved, the screw piles can simply be unscrewed and re-used!
