Embankments on weak soils and areas prone to subsidence

Stabilising soft soils

OVERVIEW

Accelerated consolidation of soft soils by using prefabricated vertical drains (PVD). 

Prefabricated vertical drains (PVDs) are used to shorten the horizontal drainage path in low permeability soils enabling full consolidation of soil in months.

They can be combined with horizontal drainage mats or reinforcements.

Colbonddrain prefabricated vertical drains (PVD) can achieve full consolidation of weak soils in months rather than years.
