Ground Improvement Solutions
Bi-Modulus Column Rigid Inclusions
Robust vertical ground improvement elements with a rigid inclusion topped with a compacted granular column.
Controlled Modulus Column Rigid Inclusions
Robust vertical ground improvement elements made of a rigid inclusion installed using a displacement tool.
Large diameter Columns formed by driving into the soft soil granular material by dropping a 15 to 30 tons weight from 30 to 120 feet.
Corrugated pipe wrapped in a filter fabric installed with a vibrating mandrel in a grid pattern.
Rapid Impact Compaction
Shallow ground densification using energy waves from a hydraulic hammer weighing 7.7 to 9.9 tons that rapidly and repeatedly impacts the ground at 40 or more blows per minute.
A mechanical blending of in-situ soils with cementitious materials and other admixtures. It’s used to mitigate risk of liquefaction; support and enhance stability of earthen embankments, dams and levees; create stable working surfaces; and bind contaminants.
Vibro Stone Columns/Aggregate Piers
Columns of compacted granular material installed in fine grained soils to increase rate of consolidation, densify surrounding soils and improve the load bearing characteristics of a soft soil.
The in-situ compaction of loose granular soils by penetration of vibratory probe or vibroflot resulting in overall improvement of the characteristics of the surrounding soils.
A band-shaped plastic core wrapped in a geotextile fabric—installed by both static or vibratory methods into compressible saturated silts and clays on a triangular or rectangular grid spacing.
