Soil Stabilisation for Apartment Block Construction in Hampton, Victoria

Client: Balmain & Co Pty Ltd.
Location: Hampton, Victoria, Australia

Project Overview:

In 2023. Rectify Group undertook a significant construction project in Hampton, Victoria, involving the development of a multi-story apartment block with an underground basement. As a crucial aspect of the construction process, our team was tasked with ensuring the stability of the soil and preventing any potential soil collapses during the construction of the basement. To achieve this, we implemented a soil stabilisation solution using chemical resin injections.

Client's Challenge:

The client faced several challenges in the construction of the apartment block, primarily related to the soil conditions in Hampton. The area had a history of loose and unstable soil, making it essential to take proactive measures to ensure the safety and integrity of the construction project. Without proper stabilisation, soil collapses could pose significant risks to the construction workers and the structural integrity of the building.

Solution:

After thorough soil analysis and consultations with geotechnical experts, we determined that the most effective solution for soil stabilisation in this context was the injection of chemical resin. This method would not only stabilise the soil but also fill voids and strengthen the subsurface layers. We planned a comprehensive injection process at three different depths: 1.0 meters, 1.5 meters, and 2.0 meters below the ground surface.

Project Execution:

  1. Site Preparation: Our team conducted a detailed site survey and prepared the construction site for the stabilization process. Safety measures were implemented to protect workers and ensure the project proceeded without any incidents.

  2. Soil Analysis: Geotechnical engineers carried out a thorough soil analysis to determine the exact composition and conditions of the soil. This analysis was critical in designing the injection strategy.

  3. Injection Process: Using specialised equipment, we injected the chemical resin at the specified depths. The injection process involved drilling holes into the ground at the predetermined locations and injecting the resin under pressure. This allowed the resin to permeate through the soil, bonding with particles and creating a stable, reinforced subsurface.

  4. Quality Control: Our team conducted continuous quality control checks throughout the injection process to ensure that the resin was distributed evenly and that voids were adequately filled. We also monitored soil stability during and after the injections to verify the effectiveness of the stabilisation.

  5. Project Completion: Once the injections were completed and stability was achieved, we conducted a final assessment to confirm that the soil met the required engineering specifications. This marked the successful completion of our soil stabilization work.

Results and Benefits:

  1. Enhanced Safety: The risk of soil collapses during basement construction was effectively mitigated, ensuring the safety of construction workers and preventing costly accidents.

  2. Improved Soil Stability: The injected chemical resin improved the stability of the soil, increasing its load-bearing capacity and preventing subsidence.

  3. Long-Term Durability: The stabilised soil is expected to maintain its strength and stability over the lifespan of the apartment block, reducing the need for future maintenance or repairs.

  4. Cost Savings: By addressing potential soil stability issues proactively, the client avoided the need for costly emergency remediation measures that could have arisen from soil collapses.

  5. Timely Completion: The successful soil stabilisation work allowed the construction project to proceed on schedule, minimizing delays and financial losses.

In conclusion, the soil stabilization project in Hampton, Victoria, exemplifies our commitment to ensuring safety and structural integrity in construction projects. Our expertise in soil engineering and innovative solutions like chemical resin injections contributed to the successful completion of this critical phase of the apartment block construction, setting the foundation for a safe and stable building.
