Ground Improvement Techniques and Related Foundation Economics for Private, Industrial & Transportation Structures
It's not a pile, it's a pile alternative!
From wick drains and dynamic compaction to vibro stone columns and controlled modulus columns, ground improvement is a proven cost-effective alternative to pile systems in soft, compressible soils. As a leader in geotechnical contracting, Menard has provided an array of value-engineered design-build foundation solutions to owners and their agents. Whether you are a General Contractor, Architect, Geotech, Structural or Civil Engineer, the topics and local case histories presented in this half-day program will demonstrate the total system and schedule savings these techniques offer compared to conventional deep foundations.
Ground Improvement Techniques and Foundation ROI for New Construction
Stop burying your money in conventional foundations.
Many Commercial/Industrial/Mixed Use sites are developed in areas with soft, compressible soils. Deep foundation systems are traditionally specified for these typical fill conditions. The success of ground improvement techniques like the Menard Controlled Modulus Column (CMC) is changing conventional design thinking. As a leader in design-build geotechnical contracting, Menard's patented ground nclusions continue to provide owners and their design agent’s significant savings compared to conventional pile foundations.
