Case Study : Innovative Use of Wet Soil Mixing Technique

March 2018 saw our compact and versatile ABI Mobilram TM 14/17V rig head down to the Kent coast.

This was a three month contract assisting Deep Soil Mixing Ltd (DSM) with their ground improvement works at the St Mary's Bay redevelopment site.

The ABI rig was coupled with a VDW 8360 Double Auger Head for wet soil mixed foundational support across this brown field site. An approach was required to provide cohesive support for new structures across variable ground conditions, as well as to improve and consolidate the existing coastal defences. The developers were seeking a solution that was not just time and cost effective, but also one with least environmental impact. The technique employed here is not commonly used across sites of this nature – but we’re happy to report that DSM were able to shave at least 18 months off the time allowed for this portion of the site redevelopment.
