Ground Stabilisation and Soil Improvements using Lime and Cement is a long established tried and tested technique in the UK.
These techniques can be used to provide Cost Effective, High performance capping layers for Highways, Piling Platforms, Temporary Haul Roads and Compounds.
By its very nature of using the in-situ soils to create the capping layers, Stabilisation offers other real Benefits such as Reduced Excavation and Disposal and Reduced Imported Aggregates to your site.
JJMac Ground Engineers and Consultants will undertake Testing and Analysis of the current subsoils on site. Once testing is complete, our soil engineers and Design Consultants will provide the Optimum Design and Methodology to achieve the required Performance Specification for our client’s application.
ADVANTAGES OF GROUND STABILISATION
Reduced Excavations and disposal costs associated with foundation works.
Health and Safety hazard reduction with less vehicle movements to and on site.
Utilising site won and in-situ materials to form structural sub-base layers.
Environmental benefits through reduced disposal and imported Primary aggregates.
Reduced imported materials required in construction process.
Simple and Quick process which Saves Time on Construction Programme over traditional construction process.
JJMac have the abilities to deliver packages that can meet your requirements. Our capabilities are, but not limited to:
- Waterlogged or Winter Working Platforms
- Haul Roads Construction
- Piling Mats
- Highway Pavement Construction
- Car Parks
JMac are experts in Ground Stabilisation using lime, cement and other binder materials. Ground Stabilisation geotechnically enhances waterlogged or weaker soils and allows for greater weight bearing for construction materials. JJMac can provide an exceptionally cost-effective construction method for improving the weight bearing properties of any soil found on site and at a competitive rate.

GROUND STABILISATION AND SOIL IMPROVEMENT
Stabilising and Improving soil with Lime and/or cement is a very cost effective and efficient way of converting weak soils into a usable construction material. This method is widely used in the construction of Permanent and Temporary works such as:
- Highway Roads and Pavements
- Car/Lorry Parks
- Foundations for Floor Slabs
- Remediation of Contaminated lands
- Haul Roads
- Piling Mats
- Working platforms
Lime and Cement treated soil effectively increases the Strength (CBR Values), Durability and Compressibility of soils on site.
GPS CONTROLLED GRADING AND COMPACTION
GPS Equipment fitted to all Grading equipment for precision leveling tolerances.
GPS Equipment fitter to lime and cement spreader to accurately
control and monitor required spread rates in accordance with design specifications. Data from the spreading can be downloaded to verify compliance with JJMac QA
DESIGN AND ENGINEERING
Design Guidance for Road Pavement Foundations allows pavement designers flexibility within Highway Works. (MCHW)
Performance Foundation Designs and Restricted Foundation Designs allow for Capping and Subbase layers to be Designed and Performance tested, giving full consideration of the existing materials on site.
JJMac Ground Stabilisation Geotechnical Partners will carry out a desktop study of the existing site using any existing Ground Investigation information available and undertake Field Testing where required to ensure the most robust and cost-efficient pavement designs are produced.
QA Performance testing is carried out at every step of the process and QA reports produced with all works – Permanent and Temporary.
