Screw Pile installation for lamp posts

Normally, installing light standards for road and parking lots requires the expense of excavating and putting in the concrete piers. Not only is that expensive, but it prolongs the project because of all the time it takes to excavate, pour the pier, wait for the concrete to settle, and backfill the excavation.
