Compaction Grouting Project | Vista, CA
Portion of a two story office/industrial building in Vista, California settled by about three inches which resulted in frequent machinery misalignment.
A study done by the owner’s consultant showed that the soil below the settled portion is due to soft soils down to twenty feet below grade.
Geotechnical Stabilization, Inc. Solution:
Our team was contacted to perform compaction grouting for the building. Without removing the soil or any part of the structure, Geotechnical Stabilization, Inc. placed grout injection points on a grid pattern over the area to be grouted and advanced grout injection casing down to the firm soil layer. The grout was then injected in stages from bottom to up to about five feet below grade to tighten/densify the soft soil. After tightening/densification of the soils the compaction grouting was then injected at depth to bring the building to level. The settled portion of the building was now level which prevented machinery realignment.
