Geopolymer v Piling – a comparison
(May 10, 2019)

This short animation looks at the comparative methods of remedial work for sinking concrete slabs. The film illustrates the benefit to the customer of using Geobear’s fast, non-disruptive solutions.



In the video, we outline the differences between the two methods so that you can understand which would benefit you most. Below we overview the key statistics of each system.

Traditional piling solution:

  • This process takes from 3 to 4 weeks to remove slab, pile and new slab
  • Causes significant noise and dust, prompting considerable health and safety requirements
  • Causes major disruption to business
  • Has a potentially significant lead-in period
  • Internal and external protection works are often required
  • Waste produced must be removed to landfill
  • Produces additional delivery/collection/mobile plant considerations
  • Businesses will incur additional costs to provide temporary premises
  • Takes around 20 days with full business closure
