Soil Stabilisation Design

The practice of soil stabilisation has been a construction industry standard for many years. The effective reuse of site won materials has widespread mechanical, financial and environmental benefits; so, the accurate testing of materials is essential.

Initial analysis is used to determine the physical, chemical and organic makeup of soil, to establish its suitability for stabilisation or reuse. Subsequent samples are gathered and analysed to establish the site-specific mix required to make the material suitable for re-use (if appropriate).

Post-stabilisation testing may also be required, to ensure the finished materials meet design and compliance obligations.
