Geobear Selected as Finalist for Ground Engineering Awards

(August 18, 2021)

Geobear is delighted to have been selected as a finalist at the 2021 Ground Engineering Awards.

We have been selected following an entry relating to our work at Bristol Temple Meads railway station over the 2020 Christmas period. 

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 consisted 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.

Geobear has also been shortlisted for the British Construction Industry and Construction News Specialist Awards 2021.
