Comprehensive Ground Improvement Services in the Columbia, SC, Area
If you’re a business owner or developer looking to build a structure on a plot of land in Columbia, South Carolina, you’ll first need to make sure that the soil in that area is stable enough to support the weight of the structure. When a building is constructed on weak or shifting soil, it’s only a matter of time before the foundation begins to sink or settle unevenly, which can lead to costly foundation repairs and can even compromise the structural integrity of the entire building. To ensure that your new building will have the support it needs to stand strong long into the future, turn to the professionals at Engineered Solutions of Georgia for ground improvement services.
What Is Ground Improvement?
Ground improvement is the process of using mechanical means, such as machinery and other equipment, to prepare a plot of land for construction. This often entails:
- Filling in subterranean voids to prevent sinkholes from forming
- Compacting loose, granular soil so it can support the weight of the structure being built
- Leveling the earth so that there is an even surface on which to build
- Building soil nail walls or retaining walls to prevent nearby soil slopes from collapsing
- Ensuring that the ground is properly pitched to prevent flooding when it rains
