Great Construction Projects Begin With Soil Stabilization.
It’s a known fact that soil stabilization improves the performance properties of the soil. Even the Romans understood the value of treatment. Today we can build upon the technical advancements in equipment and engineering to leverage the possibilities even more.
No matter what performance you need out of your site soils, stabilization will provide predictable results. Whether it’s a nonexpansive fill requirement or 300 psi unconfined compressive strength, treating the soil with cement, lime or a blend will get you the results.
Properly matching the reagent with the soil classification will guarantee predictable results.
When winter hits, construction sites are susceptible to rain delays that cost both time and money. Project Managers turn to the only proven method for site winterization – chemically treating surface soils with a lime and/or cement-based reagent.

No export, no import. This is where your project efficiency and cost savings become paramount. With stabilization the in-situ soil parameters are permanently improved to meet the most stringent of project specifications. In most instances, soil modification with treatment immediately corrects adverse conditions and permits construction activities to proceed on schedule.
Soil stabilization also provides additional soil performance over traditional aggregate base products, such as lower plasticity, lower permeability and high gravel factor values.
The age-old problem of replacing bad material with good material creates environmental impacts on all projects. Furthermore, the good material is running out, or is farther away which adds more impacts to your project. These reasons are causing owners and designers to consider more sustainable methods to building todays infrastructure.
Soil stabilization and pavement recycling are the go-to solution to repairing our crumbling roads. Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) always shows reduced impacts when soil stabilization options are incorporated into the design.
