Design documentation for any structure

GroundPlug International ApS is the inventor of the no-digging anchor system “GroundPlug Foundation”. Our experienced engineering team will find the best GroundPlug foundation setup for any required structure.  All steel foundations offered by GroundPlug International are based on calculation using:
EN 1990, EN 1991-1-1, EN 1991-1-3, EN 1991-1-4, EN 1991-2, EN 1993-1-1, EN 1993-1-3, EN 1993-1-5, EN 1993-1-8, EN 1993-1-9, EN 1993-5, EN 1997-1, EN 1997-2, EN 1794-1.
Using advanced methods of analyses such as FEM (Finite Element Method) together with practical test, GroundPlug ensures high quality products with long service life.

Practical testing (in situ test) was based on ASTM Standard (ASTM D1143, ASTM D3689, ASTM D3966) for compression, tension and lateral loading on single piles. Testing were performed by Applied Foundation Testing (AFT), USA, and CLT THOMPSON INC, USA. Additionally, GroundPlug International has invented unique soil testing system (GPST) for quick indication of soil parameters on the construction site.

For standard foundations’ design situation, our team has elaborated a software for analytical calculation of soil and foundation capacity which has been verified by LPILE by Ensoft Inc.
More information about our foundation systems can be found in PRODUCTS and ABOUT US tabs.

Our engineering team can provide design documentation for any structure based on European Design Standards (Eurocodes 0-9) with applied National Annexes. Calculations can also be performed based on valid American and Australian Design Standards. Our engineers have experience for all construction process, from concept design through engineering calculation, prefabrication of elements to installation and site managing. Our engineers are experienced (but not only) in the following types of structures:

The GroundPlug International engineering team is experienced in a variety of buildings and structure designs. Steel structures are our main field of expertise due to our scientific backgrounds. Based on close cooperation with European technical universities, we can provide technical opinions and expertises for structures and buildings at any stage of their development.
