What is Compaction Grouting?
Compaction grouting is a process of stabilizing the soil prior to construction. This is accomplished by drilling to a pre-determined depth below the surface and injecting a low-slump, low-mobility soil/cement grout into the ground. The grout mixture creates a pocket deep below the surface that grows as more grout is forced into the ground. As the pocket of grout expands, it compacts the soil around it, causing it to become more stable for building. In almost all cases, several “stacked” pockets of grout are created, stabilizing the soil over a depth that will support the intended structure.
