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
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
• Building settlement
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.
The Solution: A Resin Injection Process
The process used at SAU involves injecting the bearing capacity of the foundation soils with
resins. This is done at a considerable depth which compacts the soil and allows for densification
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
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
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.
