Soil Stabilization

State-of-the-art equipment and techniques allow Kelchner to perform soil stabilization to provide superior subgrades for street, parking lot and under-slab construction. The resulting water-repellant, stabilized base offers many advantages for developers, owners and contractors.

Kelchner uses the latest, most productive equipment available with features that ensure quality, consistency and productivity.

  • Significantly Reduces costs of well pad construction (Not Including Geogrids)
  • Reduces trucking volume by up to 40% (GREATLY enhancing Safety, while reducing the adverse effects of  Traffic, RUMA, and our Carbon Footprint)
  • Reduces long term maintenance
  • Recaptures/Reclaims more of the crushed aggregate base during reclamation (Additional Truck Trip Reduction)
  • More predictable project completion – Kelchner can work in rain and muddy conditions
  • Speed of delivery – Kelchner can stabilize a typical well pad in 12 hours
  • Better sub-base with increased durability; improves questionable sub-grades
  • Reduces ‘Tripping’ Hazards on Well Pads due to minimized rutting

The following series represents a 24-hour time-lapse capture of our soil stabilization process.

 

  • What they are saying…

    The word from the CAT execs is that they were ‘stunned’ to see how much was being done to the site when they were there last week. Great job, guys!

    In my work over the past 30+ years on new construction projects, I have worked with many of the earthwork contractors in the Ohio River Valley region. Kelchner’s performance on the Amazon River Ridge project was among the best I have seen.
