Loose, saturated and cohesionless soils are potentially liquefiable during a seismic event. Soil liquefaction can result in significant settlement and lateral displacements, as well as a potential catastrophic loss of bearing capacity. Soil improvement techniques such as Vibro Replacement, Vibro Compaction and Dynamic Compaction can be very effective in reducing liquefaction potential by using vibration and displacement to densify loose granular soil. With two Menard Canada offices located in high seismic areas of Canada, we have extensive experience utilizing ground improvement techniques to control the potentially damaging and life threatening risks related to soil liquefaction.

Ste. Anne's Elementary School ExtensionOttawa, ONThe project involved the construction of an extension to the existing Ste Anne’s Elementary School located at 340 York Street in Ottawa, Ontario. Due to the poor existing ground conditions encountered at site a soil improvement program was required prior to beginning construction. Menard Canada proposed a ground improvement approach consisting of Rapid Impact Compaction (RIC) to compact the soil with... Read More
