A foundation is traditionally made using concrete or by improving the soil. With GeoCrete®, the transformation of soft soil with cement into a structural foundation is possible. It avoids the unnecessary displacement, storage and transport of soil.
In combination with the available soil or clay, a stable foundation with elastic properties and good force distribution is created. Unlike broken materials, this foundation is not sensitive to variations in humidity, vibrations or shearing, thus increasing the sustainability of the structure. Because the material properties are measurable, they can be included in the design of the structure, which means that the use of concrete or asphalt or other construction materials can be reduced or is no longer unnecessary.
The additive increases the tensile strength and elasticity of a cement-based stabilisation. The surface of the foundation has a high bearing strength and a better distribution of forces towards the subsoil. It is possible to build a steel structure on a GeoCrete® stabilisation.
The main reasons for opting for a GeoCrete® structural stabilisation are cost savings and the significant increase in the sustainability of paved surfaces and structures.
