Soil Stabilisation

Cost effective ground solutions

We are experts at using lime, cement & other binders to enhance the geotechnical properties of weak soils

Time Saving

We can shorten the construction period via minimising site preparation requirements, alongside importing and tipping activities

Quality Control

Work carried out on in situ soil is typically more cost effective than digging and moving soil, which incurs costs of vehicle movements, importation of additional aggregate and possible landfill taxes

Cost Effective

We hire our own engineers to monitor quality throughout the process alongside regular external checks from testing companies

Levels of Treatment

There are two main levels of treatment in our soil stabilisation process, these are:

  • Improvement/ modification – We reduce the high moisture content in generally passible materials to allow the excavation, placing and compaction of land fill in a cost effective manner.
  • Stabilising – We mix the host material with binders and water to create a product with long term durability and weight bearing strength. Engineer checks are used to ensure this mix meets required standards.
