Sports Surface Soil Stabilisation

Soil Stabilisation proves cost-effective, environmental solution

Soil Stabilisation, a technique which firms and stiffens a site’s sub-soil by adding a lime and cement mixture, has proven highly effective on many of Thornton Contract’s recent sports surface installations.

At sites where there are poor or unstable ground conditions, this technique works well, as illustrated at recent projects for Westholme School in Blackburn and Gainsborough Educational Village.

Furthermore, as the technique reduces the aggregate depth required, it can prove very cost-effective in locations experiencing very high value aggregates, as found on our recent projects at Black Lion Leisure Centre in Gillingham and Bexhill High School.

By reducing the aggregate amount required, and subsequently lowering the number of vehicle movements to transport that, this technique is both environmentally-friendly and cost-effective; benefitting Thornton Sports, our clients and the environment.
