WHAT IS GROUND INSTABILITY?

Ground instability is a propensity for the ground to experience upward, downward or lateral movement. This can cause soil movement and slippage which often requires stabilisation prior to conducting excavation for buildings.

WHAT CAUSES GROUND INSTABILITY?

Instability often occurs naturally as a result of the Earth’s constantly shifting crust. However, instability can also be caused or exacerbated by soil compaction, a reduction in ground moisture, excessive excavation or erosion.

UNSTABLE GROUND DAMAGES BUILDINGS

If ground instability occurs beneath a building that has already been constructed, it can cause movement in the building. This movement creates internal and external wall cracks, jammed windows and doors, sunken floors and more. It is important to remedy the problem immediately to risk further damage to the structure and decrease the likelihood of potential hazards.

PROVIDING LONG-TERM SOLUTIONS

Without soil stabilisation, building damage is likely to reoccur. This problem is especially prevalent in large industrial sites where embankment slippage can lead to further erosion and building damage. We stabilise your building, repairing current damage and helping ensure its structural integrity in the future.
