Ideal screw pier system is the ideal foundation for your residential project!
The Ideal screw pier system is different to other foundations on the market due to the modular design. The Ideal pier is an off the shelf system with a patented male/female locking connection including the helix. The interlocking connections allows installation of variable lengths with no delays. This system gives the builder greater control when dealing with inclement weather, eliminating collapsing trenches, and any unforeseen site conditions. Gaining this control at such an early stage is critical in streamlining your building process.
Cost effective for residential foundations 1.5m and deeper!
It wasn’t that long ago when the average residential lot classification was done by a hand auger, going down a metre below the surface, which gave limited soil information to the engineer. These days residential geotechnical reports are far more comprehensive with geotechnical rigs able to drill down many metres below the surface to get a far clearer picture of the soil profiles below. This provides the engineer with detailed information to complete the design of your slab and footings.
Ideal screw pier foundations are designed to achieve the required capacities that are specified by your structural engineer. With a range of screw piers in a modular form we are able to respond with short lead-times allowing your project to keep moving. See how they’re manufactured
Ideal screw piers are marked and set out to your plans. Every screw pier is installed to the designed depth and capacity, with readings logged and documented for each screw pier. Screw piers are numbered according to plans with the installed capacities achieved. Each installation is reviewed and signed by our engineers.
We have in-house civil & geotechnical engineers and we are aligned with a number of independent engineers. Independent certification can be provided for all installation work.
WE CAN SET OUT YOUR JOB!
Rod Tillet from Retire Australia shares his thoughts on the Ideal Foundation process.
If you’ve built before or watched any building show on TV you know that getting out of the ground with your foundations can be tricky with unforeseen surprises. It’s also common for cost blowouts at the foundation stage. Find out if your house foundations qualify for a fixed cost solution.

Remove any off cut waste off your site
Ideal Foundations can meet your supply only needs. We have experience in supplying piers internationally, interstate and intrastate. Many of our piers do not require welding and are a shelf item allowing us to provide a timely turnaround of product.
We’ve exported to Asia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and Manius Island.
