Grouting has many different applications as identified in EN 12715:2000 Execution of Special Geotechnical Work – Grouting. Works completed by Substruck Ltd. are one or a combination of the many procedures where the introduction of cement grout is required either with or without displacement of the ground, depending on the nature of the host medium and the desired result.
We have the resources to mix and pump both particulate and colloidal grout suspensions. Our Colcrete Eurodrill CX 4/10s are compact, site towable, grout mixer / pump units which can mix batches of up to 120 litres of grout. The CX 4/10 will discharge continuously at a rate of up to 60 litres per minutes with a maximum discharge pressure capability of 10 bars (150 p.s.i.).
Substruck Ltd. can also install lightweight floor screeds to thicknesses as low as 20 mm for any building as a levelling screed directly onto a loadbearing floor, unbonded on a separating barrier or as a floating floor. Our plant can mix and pump the screed to any location which makes it very suitable for renovation works in older buildings or the construction of new floors in high rise buildings.
The most unusual application that we have completed so far was for Roscommon County Council in 2015 where a series of vacated badger setts needed to be grouted up to facilitate infrastructure upgrades. All works were overseen by an ecologist from an environmental consultancy firm employed by the Local Authority and no badgers were harmed during the works.
