NCBC Soil Stabilization – Environmental Engineering & CMT
In 2015, BECC performed work on the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport, Mississippi. BECC, as part of a team, worked to remediate a large storage area that had been contaminated by the agent orange chemical. The Department of the Navy tasked our team with engineering and executing a design to convert the field into a temporary parking area while stabilizing the chemical hazard.
The team performed a soil stabilization to the storage area. Portland cement and water were added to the top 14 inches of soil, forming a soil cement top layer. A Soiltac layer was added to complete the seal. In order to ensure pad integrity and allow for parking and other traffic in the area, BECC designed and implemented a quality control plan.
BECC performed onsite laboratory and field testing for the existing soil and soil cement. Using
