Soil Stabilisation

An overriding objective of Britpave is the development and forwarding of industry best practice.

The growing use of brownfield sites and the focus on sustainability issues underlines the benefits of soil stabilisation. Stabilising land using lime, cement or other binders is an extremely cost-effective method of converting areas of weak or contaminated soil into a useable and environmentally-sound construction material.

Particular benefits of soil stabilisation include:

  • Speed of project completion
  • Reduced use of imported aggregates
  • Reduced construction traffic movements
  • Minimal environmental impact compacted to ‘dig-and-dump’
  • Provision of an economic and effective subbase
  • Ability to deal with sulfate-bearing soils

Members of the initiative-specific working groups include contractors, consulting engineers, plant equipment and material suppliers and associated industry organisations. Together, they provide a sector-specific focal point that:

  • Develops and encourages industry best practice
  • Promotes the benefits of soil stabilisation
  • Reviews and updates relevant standards and specifications
  • Undertakes research and development
  • Publishes industry technical guidance
  • Provides a forum for the exchange of industry expertise and experience
