At Milan Groundworks and Civil Engineers, we specialise in addressing and overcoming the unique challenges presented by complex ground conditions. Our approach begins with a thorough assessment, utilising advanced techniques such as ground probing radar (GPR) and borehole testing to gain a comprehensive understanding of the soil composition and structure. This initial analysis is crucial in developing a strategy that is both effective and efficient.

Strategies for Layered or Problematic Soils

For projects involving layered or problematic soils, we employ a range of specialised techniques:

  • Pre-auguring: To loosen dense soils and facilitate easier pile driving.
  • Jetting: utilising water jets to reduce soil friction and improve pile penetration.
  • Vibrodriving: For reducing friction in challenging soil conditions, ensuring minimal disruption.

Each method is selected based on the specific requirements of the soil and the overall project goals, ensuring the best possible outcome.

Overcoming Space Constraints and Ground Movement

Space constraints and ground movement are common issues in urban environments and areas with active infrastructure. Our solutions include:

  • Mini-piling rigs: For restricted access areas, ensuring that even the most confined spaces can be serviced.
  • Real-time monitoring: To track ground movement and adjust our approach as needed, ensuring structural integrity.

Demonstrating Problem-Solving Capabilities

Our problem-solving capabilities are best illustrated through our case studies. For instance, a recent project in a densely populated urban area required the installation of deep foundations amidst a network of underground utilities. By employing mini-piling rigs and real-time monitoring, we successfully completed the project without disrupting the surrounding infrastructure.

  • Urban Piling: Navigating tight spaces and existing utilities with precision.
  • Monitoring and Adaptation: Continuous adjustments to ensure project success.

For you, the client, this means that no matter the complexity of your project’s ground conditions, Milan Groundworks and Civil Engineers has the expertise and technology to deliver solutions that are both innovative and reliable.

At Milan Groundworks and Civil Engineers, our piling and jacking services are meticulously designed to reinforce the structural integrity of buildings. We understand that the foundation is the cornerstone of any structure, and our advanced solutions are tailored to ensure that your building stands strong against the tests of time and nature.

Advanced Solutions for Subsidence and Soil stabilisation

Subsidence and unstable soil conditions can pose significant risks to structural integrity. We address these challenges head-on with:

  • Resin Injection: For lifting and stabilising slabs, as well as strengthening weak soils.
  • Void Filling: utilising materials like pumped gravels, cement, and resins to stabilise the ground beneath structures.
  • Root Barriers: Preventing tree root damage in clay soils, which can lead to subsidence.

Ensuring Long-Term Durability

Our commitment to durability is reflected in every aspect of our work. We ensure long-term stability by:

  • Quality Materials: Using only the highest-grade materials for piling and jacking.
  • Expert Techniques: Employing proven methods like panel pressing in heavy clays and jetting for soil friction reduction.
  • Regular Assessments: Conducting thorough post-installation inspections to monitor and maintain the integrity of our work.
