GRUNDOMAT moles the tool of choice for Glenthorne

09.12.19 - Chesterfield-based Glenthorne Property Services Ltd provides innovative piled foundation solutions for domestic and commercial building projects. Tailored to each client’s specific needs the company works with clients throughout the UK to provide augured piles, top and bottom driven piles, reinforced ground beams and heave protection systems. Over the last 25 years a variety of projects have been completed, from industrial buildings, household-name fast food outlets and coffee shops –  to foundations for home extensions and conservatories, many of which are carried out on behalf of well-known companies including Anglian Home Improvements Ltd.
Restricted access piling is a particular speciality and for this purpose Glenthorne Property Services uses two GRUNDOMAT moles of 95mm and 130mm in diameter for projects in tight and awkward spaces. The moles are used vertically, rather than horizontally, to pile down to depths of between 2m and 15m depending on the loads to be imposed. Domestic projects are regularly undertaken in household gardens where foundations for new conservatories or home extensions are required. It is common to find ground conditions are not sufficiently stable to take the weight of the new structure and space is almost always at a premium. In these circumstances the team from Glenthorne completes the foundation with a steel reinforced concrete ground beam which not only uses less concrete but minimises earth removal off-site. The family run firm was started by Nigel Middleman in 1988 and today his two sons, Adam and Joshua have key roles in the business, along with the wider family. A long term customer of TRACTO-TECHNIK UK, manufacturer of the original GRUNDOMAT mole, the company is a huge advocate of trenchless technology.
 
“We have been using moles for approaching 20 years; they are fantastic pieces of kit and have helped to cement our reputation for providing stabilisation solutions in poor ground conditions. Our system of piling with the moles is the most efficient in restricted spaces and we can ensure absolute accuracy and on-the-job customisation. We have a structural engineer who provides calculations and drawings to meet all building regulations prior to us arriving on site and we pride ourselves on our innovative approach to each and every job we undertake. In our experience local building control inspectors are highly appreciative of the system and recognise the benefits of the loads being transferred deep underground away from any potential issues such as dry summers.  The GRUNODMAT Mole system never ceases to amaze us; from its tremendous penetrating power to the reliability of driving it deep underground for it to return safely and efficiently when we put it into reverse. It is an outstanding bit of equipment.”
 
GRUNDOMAT moles have a multitude of other uses including property service connections, under crossings, pipe ramming (from type 130 on), dynamic pipe renewal (from type 95 on) and the extraction of steel pipes. For more information please visit TRACTO-TECHNIK UK LTD.
