Ground Heave Solutions

Ground Heave is the expansion of soil, typically caused by an increase in moisture content.

The Cordek range of ground heave solutions are designed to protect floor slabs, ground beams and pile caps from the effects associated with expansive soil types. In addition to ground heave protection, the product range includes systems which incorporate permanent formwork, insulation and passive ground gas venting options.

Case Study

Moorgate Shaft

Cordek were approached to provide a solution for the ground heave protection requirements of the reinforced concrete slab at the base of Moorgate Shaft. We were called upon to ascertain the appropriate protection needed, taking into consideration the weight of reinforced concrete slab and the heave potential of the soil beneath, along with the space and delivery constraints in place on site.
