Soil Improvement incorporating Lime

Found a good document here from The British Lime Association titled Earthworks Improvement Using Quicklime.

The document looks at how “unsuitable earthworks materials can be improved with quicklime to enhance geotechnical properties, resulting in a reduction in moisture content, improved bearing capacity, reduced plasticity, less shrinkage or swelling” which allows weak materials to “be handled more easily by earthmoving plant, be compacted to a high standard, support construction traffic and be treated with other binders for even greater strength“.

The document discusses the history of Soil Improvement using lime and the techniques used along with the benefits.  Have a look and let us know what you think. For more information on how Lime Stabilisation could benefit your project give us a call on 01254 238700 or send us an email to
