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
