We have a proven track record of delivering ground improvement works for industrial buildings providing great beginnings through strong floor support systems.
If specific solutions are not applied, warehouse structures that are located within poor soil areas may be subject to excessive total and differential settlements under the footings and floor slabs. Ground improvement for warehouses optimises in-situ ground usage to satisfy settlement criteria, this removes the need to bridge poor soil conditions with structural piles and a thick structural slab. Our technologies are well adapted to the loads induced by factories and warehouses, such as slab-on-grade and isolated footings. Typically, the load intensity is not too high and the floor area to be treated is large.
For structures to be built on noncohesive soils, dynamic compaction or vibrocompaction will most likely be the ground improvement method selected. The reinforcement method using either dynamic replacement, stone columns or Controlled Modulus Columns (CMC) is more suited for structures to be built on saturated cohesive soils. CMCs is by far the most suitable method due to its speed and cost-effectiveness
