Specialty Grouting

What is Specialty Grouting?

Specialty grouting is a ground improvement technique that involves injecting a grout mixture into the soil to improve and enhance its load-bearing capacity.

The grout used in this technique is typically a cementitious or chemical mixture that solidifies and reinforces the soil. The injection is carried out under pressure, allowing the grout to permeate through the soil pores and cavities. As the grout cures or sets, it creates a stabilized mass within the soil, improving its strength, reducing permeability, and providing additional support.

Grouting is commonly employed to address various geotechnical challenges, such as stabilizing loose or soft soils, mitigating settlement issues, improving foundation bearing capacity, and controlling groundwater flow. It is a versatile technique used where soil stability is a critical factor.
