Ground Improvement

Suppose you need to improve the strength of the ground beneath the foundations of a structure in order to add loads. In that case, Geobear provides a fast ground injection solution to achieve this without any excavation. We use PLAXIS to design ground improvement schemes, whereby we inject our material beneath the existing foundation, whether it be a strip footing, pad foundation or slab – this will improve the ground strength to withstand additional loads up to 350kn/m3.

Importance of Ground Improvement

Ensuring the stability and strength of the ground is crucial before embarking on any construction project. At Geobear we specialise in ground improvement, ground engineering, and strengthening using advanced finite element analysis techniques. Our goal is to achieve desired outcomes for ground improvement schemes, enabling vertical expansion and creating robust foundations for various structures.

When faced with the challenge of ground that may not withstand increased pressure, our expertise comes to the rescue. By employing innovative soil and ground improvement methods, we can enhance the strength of foundation soils quickly and with minimal disruption. Our team utilises resin-based solutions, proven to be faster and more efficient compared to other traditional methods

We inject geopolymer beneath existing foundations to enable them to withstand greater loads

Where can ground improvement be applied?

We can improve existing foundations to withstand up to 350kn/m2 of loads. Ideal if you want to add another storey to a building.

We can increase the load capacity of a concrete slab to withstand loads to accommodate a mezzanine structure.

Our powerful material can be injected under a concrete slab to facilitate the installation of heavy machines.

Some commercial space was not designed to withstand high loads such as aeroplane engines, our material provides the ground strength.

When the ground strength is weak prior to construction, our deep injections can add greater strength.

How the process works

Our ground engineering and improvement solution is an engineered procedure, whereby the bearing capacity of foundation soils is either continuously improved down to considerable depths or just at one specific depth, by the injection of expanding geopolymer resins. We model a design solution based on soil investigation analysis and other site variables. The procedure allows densification and compaction of the soil directly under the foundation, without the need for excavation, vibration or mechanical force.

Geobear ground improvement can be a fast and cost-effective alternative to piling and underpinning. It’s achieved by the controlled application of the forces generated by the expansion of unique Geobear geopolymer. Improvement, carried out by the team at Geobear, is a convenient and reliable process that enables customers to continue their normal operations during remediation works, saving you time and money.
