Large sites underlain by loose materials can be effectively treated using our dynamic compaction process.
The technique involves dropping heavy weights (8-40 tonnes) from heights of up to 30m to create very high energy impacts, which results in the immediate reduction of void spaces improving both bearing capacity and settlement characteristics.
Enhanced bearing capacity
A reduction in the total and differential settlements
Particularly suitable to non-organic, non-homogeneous fill, made ground, and reclamation areas with variable characteristics
Underground obstructions (e.g. boulders) do not hinder the process
Ground bearing foundations can be adopted following treatment
High coverage making it economical for large areas
Commercial/industrial foundations and floor slabs with high tolerances
Infrastructure schemes including embankments, water treatment plants and windfarms
Ports and reclaimed land
Treatment of landfill sites (volume reduction)
