As a consequence of urban development and congestion across the globe, competent ground is scarce. Even marginal land is now valuable to both owners and developers. Problem is, building on marginal land requires application of specialist engineering and construction methods.
Our firm is at the forefront of those specialist engineering and construction methods. We are heavily involved with construction on marginal land consisting of highly compressible and/or collapsible soils. In addition, we provide engineering and construction services with structural foundations.
Our innovative ground-improvement techniques provide attractive alternatives to costly traditional solutions such as big-diameter piles, excavation and replacement and heavy slabs. Different techniques are available to enable construction on problematic soils by improving their material properties.
The selection of the most appropriate technique depends on the particulars of each project; loads, subsurface conditions, project duration and budget.
Our experience and expertise provides solutions for existing structures, new buildings, underground structures including transit facilities and waterfront structures. Our firm is engaged in the following four sectors:
