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
- Reclamation/Remediation of Contaminated Land
- Substantial reduction in transport movements
- Minimum use of landfill facilities
- Minimum requirements for quarried stone
- Reduced local area environmental impact
- Minimum off-site material costs
- Minimum stone imports
- Reduced surfacing tonnages
- Winter working
Our Services Include
- Site Investigation
- Feasibility Study
- Design Requirements and Specifications
- Independent Laboratory Testing

Soil Stabilisation & Modification Process
- A specialist binder spreader is used to apply lime or cement to the area to be treated.
- The volume used is determined by independent engineers who test the ground and make recommendations on how best to treat the area.
- Typically the ground is treated in 300mm layers until the finish level is achieved, which can then be trimmed to fine grades.
- The stabilisation mixing drum thoroughly incorporates the binder to the required depth and specifications.
- 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.
