Ground Improvement

Ground improvement uses various innovative techniques to change the basic engineering properties of soils to allow for more efficient and cost-effective design. They are an essential component of many construction projects that involve major underground work, unsuitable soil conditions, liquefiable strata, and/or unstable existing structures.  Selecting the appropriate ground improvement technique for a project requires knowledge, hands-on experience and skills in a variety of ground improvement approaches. Subsurface conditions can vary greatly within a single site and the characteristics of the in-situ soil play a crucial role in determining which ground improvement method to use. 

At CENGRS, we have decades of experience in dealing with the design and construction of the following ground improvement techniques:  

  1. Preloading for soft clays
  2. Rammed stone columns or gravel piles
  3. Deep dynamic compaction
  4. Cement Grouting
  5. Site and structure-specific innovative techniques

Some of the major projects on which we have successfully done ground improvement and foundation strengthening include:
