Looser soils characterize many areas in the United States. Some areas that have never previously been built upon are more prone to soil disturbance and the increased potential of structural failure. Methodology used today has been greatly improved with the advent of technological tools created in just the last decade. Composition, density and support characteristics as needed for the individual project are tested before construction begins. Now it’s possible to accurately determine stress factors long before any cracks begin to appear.
Structural grouting is used extensively in the building of tunnels or other underground structures. It’s particularly useful in areas that have been mined, filling space between material disturbed or unearthed and new manmade structures. Use of structural grouting fills cracks and aids the integrity and stability of soils. There are a variety grouting options including contact grouting, modified contact grouting used with inflow reduction, annular space and backfill grouting, grouting with aggregate placed previously, grouting for specific cracking or concrete defects, a veritable plethora of potential uses. Unique structural grouting applications are developed for individually challenging environments and for the performance of certain task specific endeavors. Experience with the formulation of grout to meet a multiplicity of uses is a major advantage. We possess that type of experience with in house testing to assure our grouting meets all the needs that each and every job requires. Operational planning and a vast array of equipment aide in our unmatched capability to deliver any and every type of grouting solution your project needs.
