Concrete Stabilization Technologies, Inc. worked with General Contractor Saunders Construction, on the Jefferson High School Remodel project, to stabilize soils and lift slabs in nine classrooms, a hallway, and a bathroom. The work included cutting L-shapes in carpet as required for injection holes, drilling of holes, testing, injection to stabilize soil & fill voids, grouting injection holes, and re-gluing carpet and replacement of any damaged tiles caused by drilling.
The work was scheduled to allow approximately 10 days to complete.
By lifting one of the classroom slabs back to original, it also realigned the cabinets along a wall in one of the classrooms which is one added benefit we commonly see when doing this type of repair: doors open and shut properly, cracks in walls close up, shelving becomes level again, etc.
The project was completed in four days vs. the ten day window for the work. The stabilization work was completed with minimal disturbance to the facility, in half of the allotted time and under budget! A major advantage of the CST technologies is the non-invasive and fast, clean nature of the processes. Schools, Hospitals, Shopping Centers, and other Public Use buildings are typically repaired and put immediately back into use in a matter of days vs. weeks or months. This makes an ideal solution for projects needing to be completed over Holiday and Summer breaks or during off hours with no loss of use.
