Building Pad Preparation

Soil stabilization is a technique used on roads, parking lots, and on site development projects to meet engineering requirements. Stabilizing soil is completed to increase the load capacity of sub grades. For example, your building site may be below grade and need to have dirt brought in. This loose fill dirt would need to be stabilized before a building could be constructed. There are many situations where soil stabilization is utilized and many types of stabilization methods for different types of soils.

In the Louisville, Ky and Southern Indiana area, our clay soil type typically only requires one method of stabilizing, mechanical soil compaction.

Mechanical Soil Stabalization

Changing the physical properties of your soil with mechanical compaction techniques requires heavy equipment such as a large roller or sheeps foot roller.

Using mechanical equipment applies weight and pressure to force soil particles to interlock. Just like you see construction crews using a compactor to compress aggregates before pouring concrete, we use the same concept, only with dirt. Dirt Works Unlimited has the experience in soil compaction and building pad prep to get the job done right. Our team is just a phone call away.
