Ground Improvement

Ground improvement is often needed to increase bearing capacity, reduce settlement, retard seepage, increase stability of slopes, and mitigate liquefaction potential. ENTACT is an industry leader in using various technologies to improve, treat, and reinforce existing ground conditions for environmental and civil applications.  We specialize in serving clients with capital expansion efforts and new and expanding facilities, including Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plants.   ENTACT self-performs this work – providing reliability and accountability that clients count on for cost and schedule control.  We have the resources needed to conduct our own soil mix designs and treatability studies, we own the specialized equipment needed to implement the work, and we employ some of the most experienced personnel in the industry.
