Ground Improvement

Deep injection Uretek

Our ground improvement solution is an engineered procedure, whereby the bearing capacity of foundation soils is either continuously improved down to considerable depths or just at one specific depth, by the injection of expanding geopolymer resins. The procedure allows densification and compaction of the soil directly under a building, without the need for excavation, vibration or mechanical force.

Groundtek 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 geopolymer. Ground improvement, carried out by the team,, is a convenient and reliable process which enables customers to continue their normal operations during remediation works, saving you time and money.

How it works

Subsidence stabilization

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.

How do we resolve subsidence in just 2 days?

step1

OUR EXPERTS DRILL HOLES IN THE AFFECTED AREA

At just 16mm they're typically the size of a 10p and often we don't even need internal access.
step2

WE INJECT A SPECIAL GEOPOLYMER RESIN

In a quick and easy process we inject a special geopolymer that will expand and harden to support the property.
step3

THE RESIN INSTANTLY HARDENS LIKE CONCRETE

Within just 15 minutes the geopolymer has expanded to fill any voids and stabilise the ground and is already 90% cured.
step4

THE PROPERTY CAN BE LIFTED AND FOUNDATIONS STABILISED

You'll see the results instantly. Often cracks disappear and doors unstick as we raise the property.
