Ground Modification

Infrastructure projects often must be constructed on unstable ground that may settle, collapse, or be subject to slope failure. Using the latest ground modification techniques and materials, we improve current and future cost-effectiveness and reduce risks associated with new construction and rehabilitation of highways, railroad tracks, facilities, landfills, and mines on unsuitable ground.

Our Expertise

What We Do
Our specialists use densification, soil reinforcement, and soil strengthening to improve ground conditions and stabilize slopes.

What You Can Expect

Innovative Techniques
Performed alone or with other retention methods, these ground modification techniques are just some of those we use to ensure the best possible geotechnical solution:
  • Installation of rigid or semi-rigid inclusions for strengthening and bridging weak ground
  • Prefabricated vertical drains (wick drains) and grouting in transportation infrastructure projects
  • Soil mixing for strengthening weak ground conditions or creating low permeability barriers
  • Soil nailing for slope failure.
