Deep Soil Mixing

Deep soil mixing involves mixing a binder into the soil to enhance its strength and / or to reduce its compressibility and hydraulic conductivity.  We use deep soil mixing in a wide variety of applications including slope stabilization, excavation support, cut-off walls, seismic stabilization, foundation support, environmental stabilization and general ground improvement, deep soil mixing of provides an efficient solution to many issues. 

At Pacific Ground Engineering we principally use Cutter Soil Mixing (CSM), which incorporates aspects of trench cutter (hydrofraise) technology to excavate, mix, inject, and blend the binder materials in a highly effective way, creating rectangular deep mixed elements that are structurally and financially efficient.  We use a variety of large diameter auger techniques for deep mass stabilization projects, or more general ground improvement schemes.
