The "geosynthetic-reinforced soil on piles" foundation system is virtually settlement-free and thus ideal for rapid embankment construction. The soil reinforcement for the soft ground is provided by a combination of piles, and earthworks reinforced by high strength geogrids (e.g. Fortrac) and geotextiles (e.g. Stabilenka).


Advantages:

  • settlement free during construction and operation
  • Immediate operation/serviive possible
  • no preloading or consolidation times required required
