Blackwell provide soils stabilisation and treatment as part of their earthmoving services under their operating brand of Geofirma.
The benefits of in-situ soil stabilisation are revolutionising site preparation throughout the building and civil engineering industries. Put simply, it is far quicker and cheaper to stabilise existing soil with binders such as lime and cement to create pavement and ground slab foundations, than the traditional method of disposal and import of materials to profile a construction site.
Soil stabilisation is a modern and efficient method of recycling and strengthening inert and contaminated soils and other construction materials for foundation to buildings and vehicular paving, offering substantial benefits to the developer and contractor alike. Most cohesive and granular sub - soils can be stabilised. Natural soils as well as made ground and recycled materials can be utilised. Soil suitability depends primarily on chemical constituents.
