Factories and Warehouses


We ensure the proper development of your Factories and Warehouses projects.










Ground improvement technologies are well adapted to the loads induced by factories and warehouses, such as slab-on-grade and isolated footings. Typically, the load intensity is not too high and the floor area to be treated is large. For structures to be built on non-cohesive soils, the Dynamic Compaction and/or Vibro Compaction will be the ground improvement method selected. The reinforcement method using either Dynamic Replacement, Stone Columns or Controlled Modulus Columns is more suited for structures to be built on saturated cohesive soils. In fact, the Controlled Modulus Columns is by far the most suitable method due to its speed and cost effectiveness. Typically, the objectives of ground improvement works for factories and warehouses are:

  • To allow uniform loads over large areas of 25 t/m²;
  • To allow isolated loads up to 300 tons;
  • To reduce differential settlements to less than 1/500.
