Lime & Cement Stabilisation

In-situ soil stabilisation is used throughout the building and civil engineering industries. This is a quick and cost efficient method cheaper to modify existing soils with binders such as lime and cement to create pavement and ground slab foundations, than the traditional method of disposal and import of materials to profile a construction site.

Most cohesive and granular sub-soils can be stabilised. Natural soils as well as made ground and recycled materials can be utilised. Stabilisation eliminates the removal of unstable or unsuitable material from the site, such as soft clay or wet sands and gravels, utilising materials onsite to stop import and export of material. Instead the soil is can be treated with lime/cement to increase strengths, reduce MCV’s required for structural fill and capping/sub-base layers dramatically reducing the requirements for stone.

Cement stabilisation (HBM)

We have developed methods of hydraulically binding existing or imported granular material to act as hard standing areas, recycling yards, haul roads etc. With the use of binder materials a slab can be created with very high durability, fibres can be added if required for extra strength leaving a re-enforced concrete slab up to 300mm thick. Once the process is completed the material is trimmed, compacted and power floated to leave a solid, sealed, impermeable surface.
