Soil Improvement


Scarce available open land in densely developed metropolitan areas and the inherent challenges posed by undocumented fills, demolition debris or soft floodplain deposits are a few of the driving forces behind recent innovations in soil improvement. With the advent of new technologies, sites ignored in the past can now be developed using economical shallow foundations and conventional slab on grade instead of costly pile or caisson foundations and structural ground floor slabs. Detailed subsurface investigations are critical to the selection and proper use of any soil improvement technology.
Options for large-scale, in-place densification of granular soils include intensive proofrolling, dynamic compaction, and other densification/compaction techniques. Post-construction settlement of soft, saturated silt and clay deposits, on the other hand, can be mitigated through preloading. For marginal sites, a combination of methods may be the best approach. Lightweight fills can also be used to actually offset structural loads and essentially “float” a building. GeoStructures has extensive experience in the design, testing and monitoring of the following soil improvement methods:
