Ground Improvement Trials

A range of ground improvement methods have been trialed in Canterbury to see if they can successfully be applied to residential ground improvement.

The effectiveness of the methods was tested in two ways.

Geotechnical engineers, Tonkin + Taylor guided these trials with support from a global team including experts from the University of Canterbury, Cornell University, UC Berkley, University of Texas and other New Zealand engineering consultancies.

The trials component of the programme finished in December 2013.
