What is Soil Stabilisation?

Soil stabilisation is the process of making a reliable foundation for building and construction works. By making changes to the soil, we improve the weight bearing capabilities of the foundations, making it far safer and stronger. Resin injection is the most modern and effective method of soil and ground stabilisation.

The Modern Approach - Resin Injection

Older methods of soil and ground stabilisation such as underpinning are far more intrusive and cumbersome approaches. Underpinning is often costly, time consuming and disruptive. The scale of the project when underpinning is used is far greater, the huge amounts of concrete are expensive and the excavation work is labour intensive. Resin injection with SAU offers a far more convenient approach. Our straightforward method of resin injection does not require any excavation, and yet provides a superior outcome.

Stabilisation Through Resin Injection

At SAU, we use resin injection to stabilise buildings, this is imperative when making foundations secure and preventing any further sinking.

Our method involves the injection of our resin materials into the ground without the need for excavation. Once injected into specific areas beneath the slab, pad or foundation, the resin will expand to fill any gaps in the underlying soils. Resin injection is known to be an effective alternative to other ground stabilisation approaches, and is widely used in properties, roads, airports and railways.

Ground Stabilisation: How it Works

The approach taken by our team at SAU depends on the ground type or foundation. Once the correct approach has been identified, a specific type of slow-expanding resin is used. The team of experts then use an extremely precise monitoring system which guides the process and ensures that the ground beneath has been stabilised.

After injection, the wet resin is absorbed by the soil beneath and the materials bind together. As the resin dries, it will then expand to fill any voids.

Resin injection is much more efficient and less invasive method of stabilisation as it avoids the need for excavation and does not add mass to the existing foundation.
