Save time and money while reducing CO2 emissions with our economical soil treatment solution.
Douglas foundations injects an advanced AGSS-ICS ionic stabilizer designed for swelling clay soils that changes the nature of the soil itself to permanently solve the problem of swelling and contracting soils by as much as 88% to protect the structures above.
Douglas Foundation Solutions can apply AGSS-ICS ionic stabilizer in the manner that best suits your project. Soil stabilization can be applied either as a spray and physical mixing of the solution into the clay soil, or as a series of carefully placed injections in the soil underneath where the structure will be built.
