Foundation Solutions That Stand the Test of Time

The design of foundations for large industrial developments such as gas, power oil, hydroelectrical powerplants, and wind farms is often very complex. Because, in many cases, you are building a foundation on varying soils in different areas of the sites with low bearing capacities. Furthermore, hefty machinery, storage tanks, warehouses, and large main operations buildings pose specific geotechnical risks, the most common being differential (non-uniform) settlement occurs when a structure’s foundation settles unevenly, leading to significant structural damage over time.

Your Challenges

Energy sources are considered one of the essential resources that countless people worldwide rely on every day. That’s why it’s crucial that no matter what type of structure is being built or where it is located, it needs to perform without any interruption, quite literally 24/7. In short, there is no room for error when developing a site for any type of plant.

That’s where Menard Canada can help you most, by effectively taming your worst site soils, simplifying your project, and helping you utilize the very best in ground improvement techniques to benefit your project by:

  • Reducing the risk of soil liquefaction
  • Controlling differential settlements
  • Removing the risk of bearing capacity failure
  • Avoiding deep foundations

Our Solutions

Menard Canada’s ground improvement systems are an effective, economically efficient, and environmentally-sound replacement for deep foundations or excavate and remove methods, which are highly disruptive to existing structures and the environment. It’s all about ensuring that you get a value-engineered foundation solution that you and your team can count on to support the heaviest structural loads and deliver on our promise of a reliable and maintenance-free foundation that can stand the test of time.
