Ground Improvements

Dynamic Compaction

Commonly used in construction to prepare the ground for foundations, roadways, and other structures, dynamic compaction is a technique that densifies soils. It involves filling materials by dropping a heavy weight from a significant height. The process reduces the void in the soil, leading to increased density, strength, and stiffness.

Civ Robotics’ autonomous robots are useful in accurately laying out where to drop heavy weights in a common pattern of either 5’ by 5’ or 10’ by 10’

Wick Drain

Ground improvement technique used to provide a short path for water to escape from soil. Wick drains are narrow, perforated, corrugated plastic or synthetic strips wrapped in a geotextile fabric.

Civ Robotics’ precision in land surveying and layout is invaluable in planning and executing the installation of 10,000 to 100,000 wick drains, ensuring the ground improvement process is conducted efficiently and accurately.


A technique used to enhance the strength, stiffness, and overall performance of soil. Particularly useful in areas with compressible soil conditions, columns improve the load-bearing capacity of the ground and reduce settlement. Some examples of columns include Controlled modulus columns, Stone columns, and bi-modulus columns.

Civ Robotics’ technology helps in the planning and installation of columns by offering millimeter-level accuracy in land surveying and layout coordinates. Precise placement of columns is crucial for improving soil stability and support for future constructions.
