Geofirma Ltd are one of the UK’s leading Soil Stabilisation and Groundworking contractors. Stabilisation of unsuitable ground with lime, cement or both is a well established technique for use on difficult construction sites.
Lime for soil stabilisation and land remediation
Limbase quicklime products are recognised throughout the construction industry for consistent quality and performance. Stabilisation of weak clays and other marginal or excessively wet soils with Limbase quicklime is a well established technique giving environmental, speed and cost benefits for many ground engineering projects.
Limbase increases shear strength and bearing capacity while also improving resistance to weather and traffic.
Using Limbase reduces the ground's susceptibility to shrinkage and swelling, ensuring safer construction.
Easier foundation work
Reduction of water content to improve strength, workability and compaction
Using Limbase results in a dramatic reduction in the need to import fill and granular sub-base materials.
Lower construction costs
Eliminates the need for muck shifting whilst also avoiding tipping charges and aggregate tax.
Limbase greatly reduces construction traffic and offers a more sustainable option to alternative methods that require more extensive work to stabilise foundations.
The Limbase range has been certified to ISO 14001.
The result of Lafarge Tarmac's on-going commitment to research and development, Limbase is amoung the most innovative soil stabilisers in the industry.
