Ground Engineering Awards 2021 – Finalists
We’re delighted to have been shortlisted as a finalist in the UK Project with a Geotechnical Value of up to £500K , for our Bristol Temple Meads Ground strengthening works.
Geobear was contacted to provide a solution that would improve the bearing capacity of soils below the proposed foundations for a scaffold structure at Bristol Temple Meads train station. The scaffold spans several live tracks and platforms, and as such the loads are high and soil improvement is required prior to foundation construction and scaffold erection.
The material beneath the area consists of made ground that was not designed to support the scaffolding loads and a solution was required to improve the load-bearing capacity. Geobear was brought in to inject one of its structural geopolymers into the existing fill to provide the necessary bearing capacity. The fast implementation and minimally intrusive techniques saw Geobear improve the load-bearing over the Christmas shutdown for the station and during possession working over New Year.
