In many parts of the UK and Ireland large areas of land are unsuitable for construction because the soil is too wet, too cohesive, or simply too weak to provide a stable base. It is common practice to remove unsuitable soil and replace it with new material. However, this is an increasingly costly approach and construction companies are under increasing pressure to use more sustainable building methods.
Soil Stabilisation enables contractors to maximise use of the site’s materials and obtain the properties that they need without removing unsuitable material and importing aggregates. This reduces overall cost, as well as waste, transport movements and carbon emissions.
