Last week, we completed the first phase of soil stabilisation at our project in Blackburn.
Soil stabilisation is a technique that combines lime and cement with the existing formation to improve the bearing capacity. The use of soil stabilisation has many benefits, it reduces the quantity of material removed from the site and the number of aggregates imported. This in turn reduces the use of landfills, vehicle movements, and quarrying activities. All of which contribute to reducing the environmental impact of the works we complete.
