Hanover, MD (PRWEB) June 25, 2014

Hayward Baker and Chemical Grouting Co. present BioJet TechnologyHayward Baker Inc. (HBI) announces the formation of a strategic alliance with EOS Remediation, LLC (EOS, Raleigh, NC) and Chemical Grouting Co., Ltd. (CG Co., Tokyo, Japan) for the commercialization of the BioJet™ technology.

BioJet technology provides a solution for one of the most difficult challenges of environmental remediation in low-permeability (clays and silts) contaminated soils. The technology uses high velocity jetting tools and CG Co.’s geotechnical analysis to create intimate contact between the engineered remediation products by EOS and the contaminants by “cutting” circular slots in the soil and allowing effective distribution of the remediation products throughout the low-permeability soils.

VA Company Uses NCFI’s TerraThane Geotech Foam System to Save Parking Lot, Time, and Money for NC Municipality

TerraThane and Concrete Jack Fixed this Parking Lot

MOUNT AIRY, NC—Concrete Jack, Inc. of Williamsburg, VA, a company specializing in concrete leveling and foundation repair along the Eastern Seaboard and the South, used TerraThane Geotechnical Foam system to help save the parking lot of a Wake Forest, NC auto repair business.

"Parking lots are notorious for sinking from failed storm water structures," says Kirk Roberts, division manager for Concrete Jack. "Water causes erosion around the structures, voids form, voids enlarge over time then the parking lot just collapses. Sinkholes can shut down businesses and cause damage to customer vehicles."

Roberts says the municipality’s public works department determined the joints between the four foot sticks of pipe had been improperly gasketed, or seated, during installation. The pipe saw a continuous flow from a small stream entering at an end wall and discharging into a box culvert crossing a public street. The drop inlet at the downstream junction between the RCP culvert and box culvert also failed at the 18-inch RCP culvert feeding it, which had been repaired multiple times using open trench excavation.

DFI Forms New DFI Technical Committee: Subsurface Characterization for Deep Foundations

DFI_LogoHawthorne, NJ (May 28, 2014): DFI announces the formation of a new, 16th technical committee focusing on site investigation for deep foundation design and construction.

The Subsurface Characterization for Deep Foundations Committee was formed to increase awareness of the importance of complete and competent site investigation in deep foundation practices. The specific goals of the committee will be defined by the committee members, however, initially the committee will discuss and define subsurface characterization needs from the point of view of the entire geotechnical/foundation industry. This will facilitate getting correct and comprehensive information to the end users (designers and contractors) and minimize change condition issues/debates. The committee will liaise with associated committees from other organizations and agencies to broaden the discussion within the engineering community. The objective is to find the common ground that allows the entire geotechnical industry and all project participants to minimize disagreement during construction, align expectations, and improve communication and understanding among related parties.
