Installation of In-Situ Grout Wall for Florida Department of Transportation
In this video, Bob Moody, URETEK’s Florida President, narrates the process and procedures for installing a 290 LF in-situ grout wall utilizing URETEK’s 486STAR rigid structural geotechnical polymer.
URETEK performed 490 injections at 58 points. This created a hydraulic barrier that restricted groundwater movement from a contaminated site to a construction site where drainage features were being installed by FDOT. This removed delays to the project as construction dewatering would have been impacted by the contamination.
The FDOT team received the Prudential-Davis Productivity Award for this project for utilizing an innovate process to minimize contamination impacts. They also saved approximately $900,000 in costs.
