Ground improvement is called for in soils of low bearing capacity, when the properties of existing soil cannot fulfil the desired requirements. An additional factor in bringing ground modification techniques to the forefront are environmental concerns regarding depleting natural resources. Land is being reclaimed using ground modification tech-niques.
A combined solution of ground improvement and piling works can be implemented to improve the lateral stiffness of piles and subsequently reduce the amount of used steel reinforcement.
Dutch Foundations offers economical solutions for ground improvement through three distinct techniques:
Ground improvement is called for in soils of low bearing capacity, when the properties of existing soil cannot fulfil the desired requirements.
Vibro Replacement – Stone Columns
Very weak, cohesive and organic soils that are not suitable for standard vibro techniques can be improved by the installation of vibro replacement.
Dynamic Compaction & Replacement
Dynamic compaction is a method that is used to increase the density of the soil. This technique aims to improve the mechanical properties of the soil.
