Testing Soil Compaction

Our soil compaction was to be completed to at least 90%

It was.

Soil Compaction

Our soils report stated, ‘The drainage material and the clayey soil cap should be placed in layers about 6 inches thick and moderately compacted by hand-operated equipment to eliminate voids and to minimize post-construction settlement.’

We engaged HP Inspections to test our soil compaction throughout the backfill process, which they did.

Today, the final testing was completed.

We’re good.
