Soils often need treating to support the weight of a building or to withstand the loads imposed by a piece of infrastructure. This can mean improving the ground or putting in foundations to transfer the loads to deeper more competent layers.
Weak, compressible soils may require structural elements, specifically heavy foundations, that transfer loads through to underlying competent soils or rock. Whether an open site or inside an existing structure, Keller can provide the optimal heavy foundation solution for your project.
Liquefaction is a common problem in earthquake-prone areas where soils lose strength due to the ground motion and behave like a viscous liquid, damaging overlying structures.
Subsidence, the gradual downward movement of a building or structure, can result in damage to buildings. Keller can apply releveling techniques to bring buildings back to their correct levels, strengthen any weak ground under and around the foundations and avoid any recurring sinking issues.
Seepage control involves the creation of barriers in soil, rock, or below-grade structures to restrict the movement of water. Keller provides the optimal solution to tackle each difficult groundwater control challenge.
Underpinning provides additional support to existing foundations that are unable to safely support existing or future loads. Keller can provide the optimal repair or solution to remediate the structure.
Slope stabilization is often required to retain soil in a natural, unstable slope or in man-made excavations. Keller draws on its extensive experience with the full range of techniques to provide optimal slope stabilization solutions for various projects.
GEO-Instruments, a Keller affiliate company, provides geotechnical, structural, and environmental monitoring services. These services help owners, infrastructure operators, and construction engineers identify and mitigate risk,…
During construction it is often necessary to form a stable excavation and to ensure that any associated movement will not damage neighboring structures or utilities. Keller offers flexible solutions to solve even highly complex excavation support problems both in a temporary or in a permanent…
