Soil Stabilisation & Modification has many attractions in today’s construction market and often offers the only economic solution to poor ground conditions. Adding a stabiliser to soil can be hugely beneficial by allowing local material to be recycled and remain on site. This provides logistical and environmental benefits.

Typical applications include:

  • Waterlogged Sites
  • Car and Lorry Parks
  • Road Construction
  • Airport Runways, Taxiways & Aprons
  • Building Slabs
  • Trench Backfill
  • Hard Standing Areas & Compounds
  • Piling Platforms
  • Temporary Access/Haul Roads
  • Embankments
  • Reclamation/Remediation of Contaminated Land

Benefits

Environmental Advantages:

  • Substantial reduction in transport movements
  • Minimum use of landfill facilities
  • Minimum requirements for quarried stone
  • Reduced local area environmental impact

Cost Savings:

  • Minimum off-site material costs
  • Minimum stone imports
  • Reduced surfacing tonnages
  • Winter working

Soil Stabilisation & Modification Process

  1. A specialist binder spreader is used to apply lime or cement to the area to be treated.
  2. The volume used is determined by independent engineers who test the ground and make recommendations on how best to treat the area.
  3. Typically the ground is treated in 300mm layers until the finish level is achieved, which can then be trimmed to fine grades.
  4. The stabilisation mixing drum thoroughly incorporates the binder to the required depth and specifications.
  5. Regardless of the type of sub-grade material used, the tractor-towed stabilizer dependably converts it into soil of permanently high bearing capacity, highly suitable for placing and compacting.
