Ground Improvement Solutions
Perhaps you’re planning a new project, but the ground you’ve got to work with just won’t be able to withstand the increased pressure that it’ll be subjected to. We are experts at soil and ground improvement and our resin is perfect for improving the strength of foundation soils in a way that is faster and less disruptive than other methods.
Our Ground Improvement solution is an engineered procedure, whereby the bearing capacity of foundation soils may be continuously improved down to considerable depths – or just at a specific depth – by the injection of expanding geopolymer resins. The procedure allows densification and compaction of the soil directly under a building, without excavation, vibration or mechanical force.
Geobear ground improvement can be a fast and cost-effective alternative to piling and underpinning. It’s achieved by the controlled application of the forces generated by the expansion of unique Geobear geopolymer. Ground improvement, carried out by the team at Geobear, is a convenient and reliable process which enables customers to continue their normal operations during remediation works, saving you time and money.
The process for Ground Improvement solutions starts with surveying the soil conditions to determine how deep into the soil we need to inject the geopolymer. The composition of the soil also needs to be thoroughly analysed, so that any obstacles in the soil are uncovered before injection begins.
Next, a series of small holes is drilled through the slab or soil to facilitate the injection of the geopolymer resin. Geopolymer is then injected to the desired depth directly below the foundations, binding with the underlying soil and, where appropriate, raising the foundations to the desired height. Our solution is durable and effective, resulting in ground improvement that will last.
