Albeit this sentence has been uttered by many before us, we at TERRA-MIX do not regard this as an empty cliché, but as an honest promise.
In our readyness for action, extending far beyond normal measures. In the fact that promises we give you, we keep. In our honesty and reliability, in the hands-on-mentality, leading you straightforwardly, without any detours, to your goal. And of course : in our competence and our know-how, which we together with you constantly develop further, in order to show you new forward-looking ways in the areas of ground stabilisation, impulse compaction and ground compaction.
The demands, we put in our selves, are high: we not only want to meet your expectations, we want to exceed them. Hence we constantly think realisation oriented, keeping the economic aspects of your project always in mind and work with you towards a workable solution. Then in the end the only thing that counts for TERRA-MIX is : your satisfaction!
Impulse compaction has one name: TERRA-MIX. As experts in dynamic deep compaction we use the most modern methods of impulse compaction. The technologies and techniques, which we have developped around this method, we have perfectioned over years in meticulous work. It´s origin the impulse compaction had in the early 1980´s as military developments for the Ministry of Defence in Great Britain. Early prototypes were used to make runways ready for air operation in the shortest time possible.
BROUGHT TO PERFECTION
It´s origin the impulse compaction had in the early 1980´s as military developments for the Ministry of Defence in Great Britain. Early prototypes were used to make runways ready for air operation in the shortest time possible.
Only years later the impulse compactor came on the civilian market and was for the time being used in North America. We at TERRA-MIX reckognised the enormous potential of this method for ground stabilisation and 2007 put the first machine for impulse compaction into operation in Austria. In co-operation with the office GEOTECHNIK ADAM ZT GmbH we developed a GPS-based control system. Thus for the first time each compaction point could be stored and documented; quality control was made possible.
2008 we managed to work out an exclusive contract with the manufacturer of the impulse-compactor-head for almost all of continental Europe.
In the following years up to 2010 we realised together with the University of Innsbruck(Field of applied mechanics) and the office GEOTECHNIK ADAM ZT GmbH a from the FFG(Austrian Research Promotion Society) promoted researchproject.
The results of this project forms the scientific basis of the modern impulse compaction. (ADAM et al, 2011)
Since 2011 we make use of impulse compaction all over Austria and in building projects all over the world. Since then we brought more then 260 impulse compaction projects in 13 countries to a succesfull end. 750 roads were renovated.
Some 6 Mill. of building costs could be saved by using the TERRA-MIX method of ground compaction.
