Injectable Barrier Walls
Ground Works Solutions provides a unique, innovative solution for integrating an injectable barrier wall system to create subsurface curtain walls, retention walls, and grout barriers. A significant and costly challenge for environmental planners is the impact on the construction process when a contamination source is identified on or adjacent to a construction site. Due to the proximity of the groundwater to land surface in low-lying areas, installation of shallow underground structures routinely requires the use of dewatering methods before installation.
An Innovative, New Application
This innovative application involves the deep injection of a geotechnical polymer in a strategic grid pattern as a means of restricting groundwater flow from one area to another by creating an Injectable Barrier. This application may be implemented as a form of seepage control to remediate leakage around dams, dikes, levees and water control structures, or as a means to control or contain movement of contaminated groundwater from one area to another by reducing the transmissive properties of the surrounding soils
As a licensee of URETEK’s processes, Ground Works is able to utilize URETEK’s rigid structural geotechnical polymer to provide a structurally solid solution that can be implemented in an expedient, post construction manner. This patented Deep Injection Process gives Ground Works Solutions the ability to pump the grout along multiple injection points to solidify the structure and implement a congruous curtain for retention or solidification under the surface.
