New buildings require a stable foundation to ensure superior construction and long-lasting durability. A structure’s foundation must rest on soil that can sufficiently transfer the building’s entire load. Weak soil often compacts and eventually swells, leading to the floors shifting and the walls buckling.
Soil stabilization techniques for roadways strengthen subgrades for streets, parking lots, and similar structures. When unstable soil swells, it can cause bumps, cracks, and fractures that can present hazards, like accidents on roadways and airfields.
Some of the specific ways our soil stabilization methods benefit a construction project include:
- Potential reduction in pavement or slab-on-grade thickness
- Potential reduction in stone base thickness
- Use of in-situ materials, which may eliminate undercutting and haul-off of unstable soils. This may also eliminate the time and cost associated with the importation of fill material.
- Reduction in weather dependency. Stabilized soils can provide all-weather access to project sites and building pads.
