Remember our work with Minnesota DOT on their massive TH 169 Nine Mile Creek project?
We installed over 6,000 controlled modulus column (CMC) rigid inclusions on an extremely tight schedule—but what did the client think of our unique solution when we were finished?
In case you need a refresher, Vibro Stone Columns are columns of compacted granular material installed in fine grained soils to increase the rate of consolidation but they are primarily used to improve the load bearing characteristic and stiffness of soft soils.
Our design Menerd, John Myers, got to work on a solution that allowed us to stiffen the soils and build the columns needed to limit the settlement for the warehouse. The Vibro Stone Columns generated significant schedule and budget savings over more costly augercast piles with large pile caps and thick structural slabs.
