Soil Stabilisation

The growing use of brownfield sites and the focus on sustainability issues bring increasing recognition of the benefits of soil stabilisation

Helping the construction industry

get building more quickly and with less expense.

Benefits

Speed of project completion, reduced use of imported aggregates, less local construction traffic, reduced project costs

And more..

The provision of an economic and effective subbase, the ability to deal with sulphate-bearing soils

Sports Stadia and Circuits

Soil improvement and stabilisation are used extensively to bring projects in on time and to budget - see Applications page

Housing

Soil improvement and stabilisation are used extensively on all sizes of project - see Applications page

Transport

Soil improvement and stabilisation are used extensively on roads, rail and airports - See Applications page

The growing use of brownfield sites and the focus on sustainability issues bring increasing recognition of the benefits of Soil Stabilisation:

  • Speed of project completion
  • Reduced use of imported aggregates
  • Less local construction traffic
  • Reduced project costs
  • The provision of an economic and effective subbase
  • The ability to deal with sulfate-bearing soils

Stabilising land with the use of lime, cement or other binders is an extremely cost effective method of converting areas of weak soil into a useable and environmentally sound construction material.

This means that virtually any soils found on site can be improved for bulk fill applications and to build roads, pavements, embankments, reinforced earth structures, railways, housings and industrial units.

By stabilising available on site material, construction can be carried out cost effectively, quickly and with less environmental impact than 'dig and dump. Even using recycled aggregates requires disposal of the unsuitable on site material.

Within the the SSTG there are three sub-groups:-

  1. Promotions
  2. Remediation and Recycling of Construction Materials
  3. Technical, Research and Development
