The Uretek Method is a remedial system utilising expanding and hardening structural resins, injected into the ground, in order to stabilise, raise and/or re-level built elements and to stabilise ground.
Built elements include part or entire buildings, as well as driveways, roads and bridge approaches, floors, wall footings, machinery pads and other structures.
The Uretek Method has been appraised for remedial use within the following scope:
- Ground replacement Re-establishing dense contact between a footing and the underlying foundation soil.
- Correcting erosion and loss of support immediately below concrete floors and pavements.
- Filling in-ground voids for the purpose of foundation stabilisation.
- Correcting subsidence Lifting and squaring up buildings as conditions allow.
- Re-levelling or re-grading floors and concrete pavements.
- Ground compaction Increasing the bearing capacity of identified weak and/or collapsing ground at depth.
- Re-establishing dense contact between in-ground built elements and the foundation soil.
Application of The Uretek Method must be the subject of specific structural and geotechnical assessment, by or in association with Mainmark Ground Engineering (NZ) Limited.
