Geotextiles are designed to have specific characteristics that enable them to perform various functions in geotechnical and environmental projects.   The primary function of geotextiles is to provide reinforcement, […]

The Transformative Power of Heavy-Duty Geotextiles and Geogrids: Enhancing CBR Results

very weak ground

Introduction: The engineering and construction industry constantly seeks innovative solutions to improve the performance and longevity of infrastructure projects. One such breakthrough is the application of heavy-duty geotextiles and geogrids, which have proven to significantly enhance California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test results. By preventing aggregate displacement and facilitating effective load distribution, these geosynthetic materials contribute […]

Alternative solutions to achieve abutment and embankment stabilisation

For embankments or bridge abutments to be effective, stability and longevity are key. To provide support and be resistant to soil erosion from water run-off and adverse weather, they must be carefully planned and executed during construction works then maintained on completion. A number of methods are available to deliver stable, long-lasting solutions, including: soil […]

Key considerations when building an access road

Access routes are an integral part of all new construction sites Providing access for staff, contractors, equipment and materials, they are essential to efficient project management and delivery.
