Stabilisation

Mainmark specialises in soil stabilisation and ground stabilisation to improve support for residential buildings, commercial and industrial facilities, public and heritage buildings, and infrastructure such as roads, bridges and powerlines that are suffering from ground instability.

What is ground instability and the causes?

Ground instability is the upward, lateral, or downward movement of the ground which can cause the movement of a building or structure.

It can occur from natural factors, such as earthquakes which are due to the Earth’s constantly shifting crust, and can also be exacerbated by issues such as soil compaction, ground moisture levels, poorly executed foundations and ground vibrations from passing traffic or excavations. This can lead to subsidence, the gradual downward movement of a building or structure, which can have a huge impact on building operations and safety.

Subsidence can result in unexpected structural damage to the building, internal or external cracks in the walls, sinking floors, the inability to open and close windows and doors, failing drain systems and other severe defects. As mentioned above, this can seriously affect the building’s operations and also have an impact on insurance.

It’s important to act quickly at the first signs of subsidence so remediation work can begin and the problem doesn’t deteriorate, which will then impact the safety of the building.

How Mainmark can help

Mainmark specialises in soil stabilisation and ground stabilisation to improve support for a range of buildings and structures including:

  • Residential
  • Commercial and industrial facilities like shopping centres, warehouses and power plants
  • Public and heritage buildings such as churches and museums
  • Infrastructure such as roads and bridges, railways and airport runways
  • Commercial and industrial facilities like shopping centres, warehouses and power plants
  • Public and heritage buildings such as churches and museums
  • Infrastructure such as roads and bridges, railways and airport runways

We treat the ground beneath to secure foundations and raise, re-level, and re-support structures using cost-effective, time efficient and non-invasive solutions.

Our advanced JOG Computer-Controlled Grouting technique for ground stabilisation and level correction is a unique process that has been used by Mainmark for many years. It is an extremely precise method for re-levelling large and complex structures, stabilising soil, consolidating weak ground and lifting foundations.

Teretek® Engineered Resin Injection Solution is also an advanced solution for ground and soil stabilisation that delivers a non-invasive means of remediation likened to key-hole surgery. Small diameter holes are drilled through the ground slabs and foundations to allow injectors to be inserted in order to strengthen the ground and lift the building back to its correct level. This is a much cleaner alternative to traditional concrete underpinning, which is a much slower and costly process.

Benefits of Mainmark’s stabilisation methods

  • Fast, non-invasive and overall cleaner alternative to traditional underpinning
  • Suitable for a broad range of buildings and assets from warehouse slabs and houses, to roads, railways and airport runways
  • Cost-effective and value-added outcomes
  • Low carbon footprint methods
  • Environmentally inert
  • Minimal extra weight imposed on stressed ground

For more than 20 years, Mainmark has been delivering ground engineering solutions around the globe. Our ground stabilisation and soil stabilisation methods will raise, re-level and restore your building or structure back to safety. To find out more, contact our experienced team.
