If you are looking to keep settlement within tolerable limits, enhance bearing capacity, mitigate the risk or liquefaction, or increase slope stability, Menard USA has a solution for your project. Working with you to understand the challenges at your site and the type of support that you need, we select the most cost-effective solution for your project. We offer a wide range of ground improvement solutions that are custom designed to meet the needs of your project. Whether your issue is soft compressible clays, loose liquefiable sands, variable fills, or any other geotechnical challenge, Why Settle? OUR SOLUTIONS

Dynamic Compaction Steel weights, known as pounders, are dropped from predetermined heights in a set grid pattern to impart vibration into the ground. The technique is used to densify loose soils and fill materials and to collapse or compress voids in rock or landfills. Wick Drains Wick drains provide a preferential drainage pathway to reduce pore water pressure and expedite consolidation drainage for embankments, fills, and pre-loads. Earthquake Drains Earthquake drains’ high flow capacity allows for excess pore pressure to rapidly dissipate during an earthquake, providing sufficient discharge capacity to mitigate liquefaction and reduce post-earthquake settlement. Soil Mixing Large diameter columns of mechanically blended in-situ soils with cementitious materials and other ad mixtures to increase stiffness, improve settlement characteristics and, in some cases, reduce permeability. Soil mixing mitigates the risk of liquefaction, supports and enhances the stability of earthen embankments, dams, and levees, creates stable working surfaces, and binds contaminants.

Controlled Modulus Column (CMC)® Rigid Inclusions These elements are installed with displacement techniques that generate a minimal amount of spoil. Combined with a load transfer platform, these inclusions provide excellent settlement control and increased bearing capacity in very soft soils. Stone Columns Columns of compacted stone are installed with a vibratory probe or by tamping. In granular soils, the installation process densifies the surrounding ground. The columns are commonly used for settlement control, increasing bearing capacity, liquefaction mitigation and shear reinforcement. Bi-Modulus Columns (BMC)® Vertical ground improvement elements that are comprised of a Controlled Modulus Column (CMC)® rigid inclusion that is topped with a compacted granular column. By incorporating CMCs and stone columns, BMCs are designed to offer the distinct advantages of both types of vertical elements.

Additional Solutions: Helical Piles, Mass Stabilization, Geotextile Encased Columns, Vacuum Consolidation, Vibrocompaction, Dynamic Replacement
