In construction, everyone knows that the stability and “health” of a building or roadbed is only as good as the soil it sits upon. Often when a new project breaks ground, the soil under the surface simply is not healthy enough to support the new building, roadway, or parking lot.
At Terra Firma we believe that being environmentally responsible while conserving resources is a good thing. One of the ways to utilize materials at job sites is the process of full depth reclamation... creating roads with a better surface, improved stability, and longer lasting.
It is common during new or reconstruction projects to run into subgrade soil that needs to be modified. This is especially true in areas that can stay wet, or have a soil makeup that creates problems once a building, road, or parking lot is stationed above it.
Soil modification, soil stabilization, and full deep reclamation all require different treatments to maximize the long-term stability and strength of your project’s base. Gravel, sand, silt, loam and clay all have very different properties and challenges. Our experience and cutting-edge technology provide Terra Firma a step up from the competition. We thoroughly analyze and test your soil and materials so the best possible plan can be designed for additives, modification, and grading. This attention to detail assures that the reconstructed roadway or substrate for a building you install is stable, solid, and durable. Our reclaimed and treated roadbeds stop cracking, prevent water percolation and damage, and provide a more stable, distributed weight-bearing surface. Our results speak for themselves.
