What is Ground Stabilisation?

Ground stabilisation is a technique used to enhance poor ground bearing fill to provide a suitable load bearing capacity. Ground stabilisation is cost-effective and reduces the need to carry out excavations and intrusive piling. This technique can be used to stabilise roads, embankments, buildings and domestic properties

The stabilisation process involves installing lances into the ground to the desired depth, structural polyurethane resin is then injected into the ground having a cohesive effect to the ground in order to transform it into a rock-like substance. The ground enhancement treatment has an immediate effect allowing construction immediately after the installation.

Ground stabilisation cost benefits

Total specialist maintenance’s ground stabilisation system offers many cost benefits over traditional ground stabilisation techniques such as

  • Piling
  • Mini piling
  • Jet grouting
  • Lime stabilisation
  • Traditional underpinning

Ground stabilisation eliminates the requirement to prepare the site, also cutting down on excavations, exporting of materials and importing of large volumes of materials. Sites construction and programme delivery can be significantly reduced therefore offering savings.

The environmental benefits of Total Specialist Maintenance ground stabilisation solution

The reduction of plant and vehicle movements needed to complete a construction project will save money and CO2 emissions Construction vehicles consume large amounts of fuel.

Traditional ground stabilisation techniques usually require cement-based products that require large vehicles to transport them to the site which has a major impact on carbon emissions and they also take up significant amounts of space on site having a disruptive effect. Total Specialist Maintenance ground stabilisation technique is extremely portable with the geopolymer resin volumes requiring significantly fewer volumes than traditional methods.

Traditional ground stabilisation techniques usually require cement based which when curing emits a significant amount of CO2 into the atmosphere whereas our geopolymer resin emits significantly less than cement-based products

Total Specialist maintenance geopolymer resin (MC injekt 2700L) has been approved for safe use in drinking water and groundwater within subterranean environments.

Total Specialist Maintenance geopolymer resin (MC injekt 2700L) has a rapid gel time eliminating runoff or product dilution that is associated with traditional cement-based solutions making it safe to use around water courses, rivers and canals.
