Ground Improvement Solutions

SAU Ground Improvement Solutions avoid the need for excavation by using a ground injection method which improves the strength of the ground beneath foundations. We do this by injecting materials underneath the current foundations, adding essential ground strength that can withstand additional loads up to 350kn/m3

Ground Improvement & Why It's Important

SAU caters to a variety of project types including commercial and private buildings, commercial warehouses and more. At SAU, our resin injection process provides invaluable support to projects that need additional ground support due to increased pressure. Our team of experts focus on providing clients with a far more efficient method of ground improvement.

Ground improvements are key to avoiding future problems with foundations. Common problems that arise due to this are:

• Building settlement
• Swelling
• Voids

The problems listed above can have catastrophic implications if not corrected early by proper ground improvement. Early detection and proper planning can save the need for issues such as; structural damage, subsidence or settlement, all of which can be extremely costly to correct. This is why having a strong structural base is key for any load bearing surface.

Resin Injection Ground Improvement

The Solution: A Resin Injection Process

The process used at SAU involves injecting the bearing capacity of the foundation soils with expanding resins. This is done at a considerable depth which compacts the soil and allows for densification directly under the building. In turn, this methods avoids the need for a costly excavation.

The savings provided by the use of our Resin Injection are substantial. As well as this we also provide a much faster alternative to piling and underpinning. The scale of the job becomes greatly reduced when customers use Resin Injection with SAU. This allows for customers to benefit from the fact that normal work can continue on site due to the method of application we use. This method includes the injection of expanding resins into the foundation soils, and is a far more cost efficient, and disruptive method of ground improvement.

How it works

Before any ground improvement work is provided by SAU, we carry out a thorough survey of the soil beneath. Our surveying process includes:

• Depth measurements prior to injection
• Analysis of soil composition for obstacles

Once the soil conditions have been surveyed, it is time for the resin injection. We start by drilling small holes through the slab or soil and injecting the resin below the foundations. The resin will then bind with soil beneath and the foundations will rise to the required level.
