Foundation stability is the bedrock of any construction project. It ensures the longevity and safety of structures, preventing future complications such as settlement and structural failure. At Milan Groundworks and Civil Engineers, we recognise that a stable foundation is not just a requirement but a guarantee of the integrity of your entire project.

Erosion Control Measures

To prevent soil erosion, which can lead to water pollution and land degradation, we implement a variety of control measures:

  • Silt Fencing: We use silt fences to prevent sediment from leaving the site during rainstorms.

Soil Remediation Techniques

When dealing with contaminated soil, we employ remediation techniques to ensure the land is safe for future use:

  • Bioremediation: utilising natural organisms to break down pollutants in the soil.
  • Soil Washing: Physically removing contaminants from the soil using specialised equipment.
  • stabilisation: Adding materials to the soil to chemically immobilise contaminants.
