Lime Modification at Speke
After successfully carrying out Soil Stabilisation on many projects in the North West in the past EWS, T R Stabilisation were once again contacted to assist on a Commercial Development in Speke where EWS were carrying out works for Marshall Developments.
We were provided with a specification to treat the Sub-Grade and Bulk Fill to CBR 5% using quicklime.
Site samples were collected and taken to a UKAS accredited independent laboratory for analysis and for a mix design to be carried out to establish the correct quicklime addition.
Once the correct binder addition had been established works commenced on site. EWS prepared areas for treatment in 300mm layers and then quicklime was applied to the area using a tractor towed Streumaster Spreader. The treated area was then mixed using a Wirtgen WR2500S Mixer.
Once the material had been treated it was compacted using a Hamm 3520HT Roller. Stone was then laid on top of the area by EWS ready for final trim.
The works ran inline with the programme without any delays.
