Accelerated consolidation of soft soils by using prefabricated vertical drains (PVD), and using Geosynthetic Encased Columns to ensure the columns transfer loads vertically.
With stone columns traditionally used to improve bearing capacity and reduce settlements, using Geotextile Encased Columns (GECs) can resist bulging and ensure the columns transfer loads vertically, with the lateral support being provided through the reinforcement.
Prefabricated vertical drains (PVDs) are used to shorten the horizontal drainage path in low permeability soils enabling full consolidation of soil in months.
Colbonddrain prefabricated vertical drains (PVD) can achieve full consolidation of weak soils in months rather than years.
