Our Role

ByrneLooby's role on the project was to appraise the initial ground improvement solution, prepare the earthworks and ground improvement specification, review the contractor design, build proposals and tender returns, review the ground improvement works, and review the compliance reports. Following the tender process, a soil stabilisation solution of lime and cement stabilisation was selected as the most suitable solution.

 

ByrneLooby supervised the construction works, visiting the site, and reviewing in-situ and laboratory testing to verify that the works met settlement criteria and project design specifications. When the works were finished, we conducted a detailed review of the compliance report to independently verify that the works were completed to the required specification and standards.

Solution

Variable soft cohesive and loose granular materials were encountered within the initial 3m to 4m below ground level during the ground investigation. A ground improvement scheme was proposed at the site to reduce foundation costs over traditional piled/ bulk dig and replace solutions.
