EagleLIFT’s soil compaction
Soil compaction plays an essential role in the success of any construction project. Loose or disturbed soil strata can move during work and after project completion, which can negatively impact structural support and cause further damage. Properly compacted and densified grounds, however, provide the necessary flat base used to support buildings, foundations, pavements, roads, and other structures.
EagleLIFT’s soil compaction and densification services is quick to set and does not require soil excavation, removal, or replacement. We plot out multiple injection locations and introduce the polymer with precision. The material fills up the impacted area evenly and cures into a strong, stable, and long-lasting replacement base material in a matter of minutes.
All projects our teams take on are expertly designed, and the soils they address and thoroughly studied. Sectors of society that can benefit from our services include:
- Future construction
- Commercial foundations
- Municipal infrastructure
- Industrial or manufacturing facilities
- Dams and levees
- Multi-family dwellings
During construction of a structure, processes such as excavating, grading and trenching can disturb soils. As a consequence, air and water are introduced into the soil mass, which increases soil volume and creates voids. Our specialized soil compaction and densification process work to reinforce existing soils and remove voids, which offers the following benefits:
- Increases load-bearing capacity
- Improves durability
- Bolsters deformation resistance
- Decreases frost damage
- Increases stability
- Reduces permeability
Our qualified technicians stabilize soil using an innovative polyurethane injection technique, which helps to better support structures above. A high-density, structural polyurethane is injected into base soils through 3/4” metal rods, and it quickly moves throughout the aggregate and expands. Its characteristics include:
- Grows up to 25 times its initial volume
- Environmentally inert
- Not biologically reactive and will not decompose
- Increases soil weight-bearing capability
- Displaces trapped water
- Not compromised by wet conditions during or after installation
- Seals leaks and misaligned joints
- Not impacted by contamination, microbial corrosion and or high acid levels
