Douglas County Sheriff MSE Wall Repair – Highlands Ranch, CO
Concrete Stabilization Technologies, Inc. partnered with the Douglas County Facilities Management division of Douglas County, CO to stabilize the Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) walls at the Douglas County Sheriff Sub-Station in Highlands Ranch, CO.
CST was referred by a geotechnical engineering firm to provide a solution to stabilize portions of distressed MSE wall. The geotechnical report indicates low density soils between base of wall and top of storm sewer pipe installed approximately 16’ prior to MSE wall. A section of the MSE wall was slated to be rebuilt after soil stabilization project was completed.
Patented processes were used to increase bearing capacity and stabilize the West and East MSE wall in the sewer trench area of the facility for an area of approximately 60 LF. CST’s deep injection method was performed to reinforce low density soils between top of storm sewer pipe and bottom of MSE wall. The distressed MSE wall was monitored with laser levels during the injection of expanding structural polymer into the underlying soils. Injections were also performed around a manhole to void fill and seal joints.
Video camera inspections were done before and after injection to verify pipe condition. The patented injection processes used in this stabilization project saved the customer from excavating and possibly replacing the pipe.
This project was completed on time and on budget!
