Ground improvement operations are a typical component of many construction projects, in which existing ground conditions that cannot be otherwise removed must be modified to facilitate or support the subsequent construction of important structures.

Examples of geotechnical ground improvement operations include construction of grout curtains beneath tailings dams or other water control structures, as well as excavation of mine openings such as tunnels, shafts and raises within fractured and water-bearing ground conditions.

Peter White is retained by owners, engineers and contractors to provide site specific solutions for geotechnical projects, including the selection of suitable grouting materials, appropriate equipment and safe, efficient work methodologies.
