Ground improvement uses various innovative techniques to change the basic engineering properties of soils to allow for more efficient and cost-effective design. They are an essential component of many construction projects that involve major underground work, unsuitable soil conditions, liquefiable strata, and/or unstable existing structures. Selecting the appropriate ground improvement technique for a project requires knowledge, hands-on experience and skills in a variety of ground improvement approaches. Subsurface conditions can vary greatly within a single site and the characteristics of the in-situ soil play a crucial role in determining which ground improvement method to use.
At 100%SOLUTIONS, we have decades of experience in dealing with the design and construction of the following ground improvement techniques:
- Preloading for soft clays
- Rammed stone columns or gravel piles
- Deep dynamic compaction
- Cement Grouting
- Site and structure-specific innovative techniques
