Siting made easy
Swift Group has teamed up with Swift Foundations to provide 3 kits to make the siting of your S-Pod or S-Pace quick and easy.
4 x Swift Plinth Plus modified specifically for the S-Pod and S-Pace
Swift Plinth Plus provides a cost saving and strong alternative to traditional concrete foundations. Swift Plinth can take loads from 1 tonne to 2.5 tonnes per plinth making it ideal for the S-Pod or S-Pace. It has the advantages of being quick and easy to install, with adjustable leveling and provides excellent air flow to the base of the structure.
Pea gravel and retaining grids
The Landscaping Kit allows you to dress the site where your S-Pod/S-Pace is installed making it ready for immediate use. Recycled ground reinforcement grids click together to form a rectangular frame around the perimeter of the pitch, demarking the pitch from the surrounding land. Pea gravel is then brushed into the grids, and under the chassis of the S-Pod/S-Pace, providing good drainage and reducing rainwater splashback onto the underside of the S-Pod/S-Pace.
4 x ground anchors, cables and connectors
The Anchoring Kit allows you to anchor your S-Pod/S-Pace into the ground to resist movement by sudden gusts of wind. Four anchors are driven into the ground immediately below the S-Pod/S-Pace using a special drive tool before strong wire rope is used to connect the anchors to four designated points on the underside of the S-Pod/S-Pace chassis.
Planning permission and site access for domestic homes
The S-Pod has living, sleeping, cooking (except S-Pod 4) and washing facilities and is certified as a holiday home caravan which is designed to be connected up to services such as bottled gas, electrics and water, so if you would like full electrics and water connecting you should contact your local authority to check whether it requires planning permission. Even if you don’t plan on connecting the S-Pod up to services you may still want to check with your local authority on planning permissions as they may require your S-Pod to be a certain distance from your neighbours property.
The S-Pod is of rigid construction and not flat pack assembly so site access needs to be considered and the S-Pod may require craning into your property. Please check the dimensions of your garden to ensure you have an area to put in a suitable base to site the product on.
The S-Pace is not classified as a holiday home and is designed to be connected to services such as electrics. It therefore may not require planning permission, however, it is advisable to check with your local authority on planning permissions as they may require your S-Pace to be a certain distance from your neighbours property.
Again the S-Pace is of rigid construction so like the S-Pod may require craning into your property. Please check the dimensions of your garden to ensure you have an area to put in a suitable base to site the product on.
