Commercial and Residential Buildings


We ensure the proper development of your Commercial and Residential Buildings projects.










For the construction of low-rise commercial and residential buildings on marginal soils, especially over thick soft compressible soils, the typical foundation system will be using piles to transfer the loads from the structures to the competent soils below the compressible soil layer. There are opportunities to use ground improvement methods for these buildings to provide savings in terms of construction time and cost. A wide range of ground improvement technologies such as Menard Vacuum Consolidation, Dynamic Replacement, Stone Columns and Controlled Modulus Columns can be adopted. The Controlled Modulus Columns stand out as the preferred choice due to its high load carrying capacity and speedy construction. Using the Controlled Modulus Columns, the following objectives can be achieved for the foundations of commercial and residential buildings:

  • To allow uniform loads over large areas of 25 t/m²;
  • To allow isolated loads on a footing up to 400 tons;
  • To reduce differential settlements up to 1/1000.
