Las Americanas Hotel Permeation Grouting - Los Angeles, CA

Learn more about our recent case study on how EagleLIFT utilized permeation grouting to elevate the base of Las Americanas Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. Contact us today!

Project Challenges

• Collapsing sands in the basement of the hotel were preventing the excavation of a proposed elevator shaft

• Elevator shaft design was to excavate 8 feet below basement grade which would be 19 feet below parking lot grade

• Only access to the basement was down a staircase which made installing shoring impossible

Design Approach

• Geotechnical engineer recommended grouting sand to prevent collapse

• Eagle Lift proposed permeation grouting using a one-part Deneef SoilPure grout to a depth of 20 feet

• 2 rows of injections were strategically placed on 18” centers. Grouting was performed in 1-foot lifts


 Project Support

• Geocon West, Inc on project design who was the geotechnical EOR on the project

• Walton Construction GC for the project

• Pre-con meeting with GC, Geo, and excavation subcontractor.


• The SoilPure grout permeated the sands as anticipated and successfully “glued” the sands together allowing the excavation crew to safely excavate the elevation pit without collapse.
