Industrial facilities ground improvement: What is at stake?
Industrial facilities are heavy structures that are prone to risk. In order to ensure safe construction and performance throughout the operational life, we must build solid foundations.
Ground improvement may be necessary to meet various objectives: to improve bearing capacity and reduce the settlement of soft ground, prevent liquefaction in the event of an earthquake, control groundwater, stabilize the base of an excavation, prevent deformation of the surrounding ground, or clean up contaminated ground.
Our ground improvement solutions include preliminary geotechnical investigations, soil consolidation techniques, environmental protection, temporary consolidation, dewatering and more.
A combination of ground investigations and ground improvement solutions can help optimize cost-effectiveness and strengthen the safety/security of industrial sites.
