Did you know that every construction project requires environmental site works? You can’t develop a road, railway or embankment over soft soil without subgrade ground improvement actions to improve its bearing potential. W.F. Botkin Construction Ltd. undertakes various environmental site works such as silt fencing installation and soil stabilization in Saskatchewan. Our people have the knowledge and experience to guide your stabilization project from the start to finish. If you want to hire us to provide you with the best economic solution by utilizing the newest and advanced equipment in the market today, get in touch with us.
What is Soil Stabilization?
Due to the amount of clay in Saskatchewan, soil stabilization has been one of the fastest-growing techniques used to stabilize bases in Western Canada. Soil stabilization helps to enhance the physical properties of soil, contributing to its shear strength and helping control shrinking and swelling properties. It also improves the subgrade’s capability to endure heavy loads. Without the stabilization process, structures and surrounding features can potentially experience problems such as pavement failure and foundation settlement.
Environmental Requirements in Construction
Construction projects have an ever-increasing number of environmental preservation requirements to meet for their contracts. This generally involves things like installation of silt fencing to protect sedimentation of nearby waterways, installation of erosion control membranes and blankets to prevent washouts and slope failures, capturing fish and releasing them elsewhere, preserving bird nesting areas, and soil stabilization.
Oftentimes, land developers and contractors will learn about our environmental services of the land on their job site prior to demolition, in order to evaluate the condition of the soil. This procedure provides a better understanding of how to best handle the demolition strategy.
Soil Stabilization Services
One of the larger environmental site works we undertake is the excavation and hauling of contaminated soils. This is usually the result of hydrocarbon spills or leaks on service station sites but we also sometimes deal with chemical spills or disposal areas and organic sludge lagoon areas.
W.F. Botkin Construction Ltd. specializes in the excavation and disposal of contaminated soil, as well as site remediation. We use precise safety measures when handling, processing and transporting contaminated soil to a government treatment facility.
