Vibro ground improvement will enhance the bearing capacity of the existing soils through densification and reinforcement and provide improved settlement performance. This will allow the construction of standard shallow reinforced foundations and ground bearing slabs generating further cost savings. Vibro stone columns are ideal for when building on large areas of weak ground.
Vibro stone columns is a ground improvement technique that can be used in the residential, commercial and industrial sectors and infrastructure, including:
Employing two types of method for this technique, we utilise the rigs we have customised and engineered to deliver an effective solution. These methods are:
Used when an open bore becomes unstable due to the presence of very soft soils or with a high-water table. In this case, stone aggregate is fed into the column through a tube attached to the vibroflot which supports the bore as the flot remains within the ground while constructing the stone column.
Typically used where an open bore can be formed by the vibroflot which remains stable and can be filled with stone aggregate from working platform level.
