Installation Specialists

FLI Installation Crews

FLI Structures has complete in-house capabilities to install any steel structure, from gantries to 300 metre masts. FLI towers and masts have been installed by our teams around the world from the Falklands to Norway.

The cost and risk benefits to customers achieved by one company providing a turnkey solution are significant.

Project Management

FLI has a large team of in house project managers. Each order received is assigned to a manager who will remain the lead for that project until completion. Our Project Managers have a can-do attitude, ensuring that the customer receives goods to specification and on time.

Pile Installer Training

FLI screw pile training courses take place at FLI's premises and are carried out by our structural engineers, with sessions covering the theory of screw piling, practical hands on work and trouble shooting discussions. There is a test taken before competence certificates are issued and we audit trainees on real sites.  Separate courses are run for hand held piling and performing screw pile tension and compression tests.

Torque Motor Hire

In addition to training, FLI has torque motors available to hire for installing our screw piles. These range from the small PD15 hand held motors all the way up to FLI's very powerful PD210.

Pile Testing

FLI is able to test screw piles to ensure an installation has been carried out in accordance with the design.  FLI offer helical pile tension testing up to 150% of working load.  Compression or lateral screw pile testing is also possible. We are able to conduct tests in line with ICE specifications and can carry out maintained load, cyclic load and constant rate load tests.

Geotechnical Investigation

We carry out full Geotechnical Investigations. By tailoring these precisely to the requirements of the product we are able to reduce costs while lowering the risk of either pile refusal or the need for longer piles.

FLI produce Desk Study reports including GDR (Geotechnical Design Reports), GIR (Geotechnical Investigation Reports) and Contribute to the GFR (Geotechnical Feedback Report). Where required we can work in accordance with HD 22/08 and with BS EN 1997-2.
