GSI’s specialized fleet of purpose-built limited-access rock drills, combined with our staff of engineers and rock remediation...

  • Compaction Grouting Services

    Compaction Grouting Services

    Compaction grouting is a ground improvement technique that improves the strength and stiffness of the ground by controlled, high pressure injection of low-mobility cementicious grout. As the grout mass expands, the soil is displaced and compacted. If injected properly, the grout does not flow away from the injections zone or significantly permeate the surrounding soil. The result is a series of very stiff, bulbous grout columns surrounded by soil of...
