Green Orange Construction Professionals provides design-build services for your soil stabilization needs.
We implement different methods to stabilize soils, eliminate settlements, strengthen foundations, and
stop water leaks. Through soil improvements, we change the mechanical properties of the soil itself,
without using additional structural elements, making it a more competent material to either excavate or
to bear loads.
When changing the properties of the soil is not feasible, another option may be the use of
structural elements, often a combination of concrete and steel that is capable of bearing loads or
transferring loads to better soils. Finally, where problems are caused mainly by elements such as wind and
rain rather than poor soils, we can prevent unstable situations by limiting the exposure of these soils to
such elements, using erosion control systems.
Our services consist of cementitious and chemical grouting to improve the geotechnical
and geo-mechanical properties of the soil. The different type of grouts infiltrate into the spaces between
the particles, cementing the soils and stopping water infiltrations. The selection of the proper grout and
grouting technique is the function of the soil type, consolidation history, permeability, and volume of voids.
The main grouting techniques we use are permeation grouting (the grout permeates in the voids between particles), compaction grouting (the grout particles are bigger than the space between soils particles, therefore when injected with high pressure the grout will compact the surrounding soil increasing its density), fracture (claquage) grouting (used to hydraulically open cracks in dense soils to compensate settlements on the surface), fill grouting (used when there are large voids in the soil, or for annular space grouting, consisting in simply filling a relatively large void), and jet grouting (consisting in creating columns of concrete and soils, to increase the stand-up time of the soil prior an excavation or to improve the bearing capacity of a large foundation).
involves installing structural elements rather than changing the soil structure, which
is done in grouting. The solutions offered are a wide variety of retaining walls including Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls, modular block walls, pile and lagging walls, gabion walls, R-rap walls, temporary walls, wire panels walls, gravity walls, soil nail walls, tieback walls, concrete shotcrete walls, cantilever walls, and anchored walls. We install walls in the mining industry as primary crusher walls, as well as serving the commercial and residential industry with final retaining walls, support of excavation, earth retention, and shotcrete installation.
Green Orange construction provides services for slope stabilization, consisting in reinforced soil slopes, soil nail slopes, tieback revegetated slopes, piles, micropiles, and helical piles. These structures are often required as landslide rehabilitation and emergency work, creek bank protection, portals access, and roadway protection.
An important aspect of the services Green Orange Construction Professionals provides
as part of its overall soil stabilization services. By offering design-built support we are able to custom fit
the best solution to solve our client’s challenges. We install light revetment like anchored turf reinforced
mattresses and heavier solutions such gabions, reno mattresses, articulated concrete blocks, rip-rap,
and other type of revetments to prevent erosion. Typical applications for these solutions are creeks and
channels bank protection, ponds and spillways for new residential and commercial developments,
drainage structures in general, and culverts protection.
