1. On receiving an enquiry, the Geobind team visit the potential site, to ascertain the viability of the GEOBIND® system.
2. On receipt of confirmation to proceed from the client, DCP (dynamic cone penetrometer) testing is undertaken to establish the ground strength at the formation of the stabilised layer.
3. Material samples are also taken from site, and delivered to a laboratory to confirm the proposed mix designs and soil properties.
4. On receipt of order, Geobind can mobilise to site within seven days. An on-site laboratory is set up.
5. Top soil strip of the set-out areas is undertaken.
6. Mixing commences using specialist plant, which rotavates GEOBIND® in situ with site won material.
7. Correct moisture content is a vital part of the stabilisation process. Water is added if necessary.
8. The area is then trimmed and compacted.
9. The specified surfacing is applied.
10. Given optimum conditions, 3,000m², or half a kilometre of haul road per day, can be completed.
11. Throughout this process, on-site testing by a UKAS registered laboratory is undertaken.
12. UKAS validation testing is also undertaken after 48 hours, to ascertain required strengths have been achieved, after which site trafficking can begin.
