Ensuring Long-Term Stability Through Ground Improvement
Guaranteeing the long-lasting performance of this infrastructure is vital, so it’s important to ensure that the soils that they will be resting on are stabilized and appropriately reinforced to avoid costly and damaging soil settlements over time. Ground improvement is a practical, economical, and efficient approach to the unique demand’s that both railways and roadway projects face when encountering poor soils. Our ground improvement approaches help to reinforce the soils in place without having to create a lot of excess soils, which is a positive from both a project budget perspective and from an environmental point of view, helping to protect area wildlife and wetlands from being disturbed.
Transportation networks, such as roads and railways, are critical infrastructures and are heavily relied upon. Consequently, both must perform as expected over time, regardless of the day-to-day demands placed on them. However, one of the biggest challenges for most transportation infrastructures, especially with associated slopes, embankments, and retaining walls, is that they are often built-in areas consisting of highly compressible and weak soils with low bearing capacities, stability, and extreme settlement characteristics.
