Samples of chemically treated soil will be handed out to show its inert effect on the environment as well as its strength/weight ratio.
The presentation will provide a review of case studies of chemical grouting applications using national infrastructure, commercial, and residential cases. Technical calculations, timelines, safety, logistics and cost savings will be analyzed for each case study to check for feasibility. The course will conclude with a Q&A session for comparisons to current and historical projects for the attendees.

I want to make sure that my home is sturdy, but I’m not sure how to go about it. It makes sense that I would want to get my home underpinned. That seems like a great way to make my home way more sturdy.

I can see how a business could really benefit from getting the right kind of underpinning for their building. Having the work done by a professional could allow them to be safer. it was interesting to learn about how they can stabilize the soil without excavating the area.
