The Solution: A Resin Injection Process
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 Groundtek geopolymer. Ground improvement, carried out by the team at Groundtek, 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.

The Benefits of Groundtek’s Solution
The Benefits of Groundtek's Solution
Our solutions provide the same benefits for commercial, industrial, residential and public buildings, as well as infrastructure and historic structures.
No Disruption to Everyday Life
Our systems and solutions offer an almost distraction-free site allowing residential, business and commercial buildings to keep running with no downtime. This saves you both time and money as everyday operations can continue running at full capacity.
Our systems are built on efficiency. Every step of the stabilisation process is expedited and some projects can be completed in just a single day. Some of the alternative subsidence and ground repair methods can take weeks and even months to finish.
Designed to Last
Our rapid services have a proven track record when it comes to reliability and stability. Our technologies have been providing long lasting solutions throughout Europe, The Americas and Australia for over three decades with durable and time-tested results.
Adaptable and Functional
Our systems provide a new level of support to uneven slabs, repairing damages that have occurred over a number of years. We offer services for all types and sizes of building. Groundtek can revive foundations back to their original quality and capacity, no matter the type or purpose of the building or structure.
Fully Manageable Systems
Unlike traditional techniques, our geopolymer approach doesn’t rely on an abundance of hydraulic pressure which can sometimes get a little uncontrollable. Instead, boundaries are raised with complete control resulting in a much-reduced chance of damaging or breaking slabs.
Strong Structural Capabilities
Technology from Groundtek allows for massive lifting capabilities. Our systems provide a solution for even the most demanding of circumstances. Anything up to 40 tonnes per square metre (400kPa) can be delivered by our incredibly strong and vigorous remediation solutions.
Thanks to the advanced nature of Groundtek’s solutions, buildings don’t always have to be lifted to be repaired. In some cases, a number of very small sized holes can permit geopolymer resins to be injected through floor coverings and finishings should lifting not be a feasible or necessary option.
All services, solutions and products have been officially certified as having no negative impact on the environment. They also require no excavation or disturbing of laying ground resulting in a more eco-friendly underpinning method than the excavation-heavy alternatives.
