Multifamily Mixed-Use Building

Discover how our vibro stone column (VSC) solutions improved the ground beneath a mixed-use building that sat next to a river.

Ground Improvement—Installing Vibro Stone Columns

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The client planned to build this six-story building next to a river. However, the ground on the site was extremely inconsistent—some parts of the soil were extremely hard while others were extremely soft. They needed to find a way to reinforce the soil and give it consistency while keeping the project on schedule.

REQUIREMENTS AND CHALLENGES

We supplied vibro stone columns (VSCs) as rigid inclusions that the project’s engineer could adapt to different installation methods. The engineer and the site superintendent installed the rigid inclusions in different ways depending on the soil’s changes throughout the site.

SOLUTION AND RESULTS

Our VSC solution helped the project stay on time and within budget. The project maintained its timelines because the engineer determined the soil’s needs and the potential project results quickly, resulting in a speedy installation. The general contractor and site superintendent were both satisfied with these results. This client now wants to work with us again on another project.
