Bearing Capacity and Settlement Control
Bearing capacity is the capability of the soil to support foundation loads and is closely related to the settlement experienced by a structure. Insufficient bearing capacity can lead to intolerable total and differential settlements, or even foundation failure. Menard Canada offers many ground improvement methods for increasing the bearing capacity of a variety of soil types. These ground improvement methods include compaction techniques such as Dynamic Compaction, consolidation techniques such as Vacuum Consolidation and soil reinforcement techniques such as Controlled Modulus Columns, just to name a few. By offering a wide array of techniques, Menard Canada can provide our clients with the most appropriate ground improvement technique (or combination of techniques) based on soil, structure and performance requirements.
