St. Louis Soil Stabilization Solutions

Soil stabilization is the permanent physical and chemical alteration of soils to enhance their physical properties. Stabilization can increase the shear strength of a soil and/or control the shrink-swell properties of a soil; therefore, improving the structural capacity of the soil.

Stabilization can be used to treat a wide range of sub-grade materials from expansive clays to granular materials. Stabilization can be achieved with a variety of chemical additives including lime, fly-ash, and portland cement, as well as by-products such as lime-kiln dust (LKD) and cement-kiln dust (CKD).

Proper design and testing is an important component of any stabilization project and our soil stabilizing experts at Byrne & Jones can determine the most effective solution for your property. They will establish design criteria as well as determine the proper chemical additive and admixture rate to be used to achieve the desired engineering properties
