FLI Structures, part of the Haley Group, has been presented with a Birse Rail Supply Chain Award for Innovation in recognition for its pioneering Hand Install Foundation System.

This FLI system was used by Birse for the construction of refuge platforms on the West Coast Main Line. It comprises of screw piles installed with a hand held motor and interface grillages that are light enough to be carried.

The system is quick and easy to install, and allowed Birse to carry out work which would normally have required time-consuming and costly track possessions. It can be used to support lighting columns, refuges, LOC and other platforms, CCTV masts, and can also be used for embankment stabilisation or for soil nailing projects.

FLI says its screw pile foundations and grillages are an “all steel” sustainable foundation solution – a prerequisite to meet today’s demanding environmental standards.
