A national restoration contractor recently contacted Ground Consolidation Services regarding a plumbing repair they were working on. They had uncovered a large void under the foundation slab in an apartment building. Plumbing leaks are a common culprit when it comes to creating sub-slab voids. The void posed a threat to the stability of the foundation. Filling this void was mission-critical for the property owner because a lucrative lease for this unit loomed on the horizon. Time is money, as they say!
A GCS crew arrived on the scene right away. They filled the void with Alchemy-Spetec’s AP Lift 430, a high-density polyurethane foam. The expanding structural foam travels the path of least resistance, filling all void areas as well as compacting any loose or saturated soil. The crew finished the job and was out of there by lunchtime. The plumbing project was back on track and the lucrative lease signing was back on schedule.
