In an infrastructure project at Sundsvall Travel Center, commissioned by GRK Infra, the use of Isobetong® has been a cornerstone of success. With a focus on reducing environmental impact and increasing efficiency, this project has demonstrated how we can surpass traditional materials and deliver impressive results.
The assignment involved a volume of 2,400 cubic meters that was pumped out in just 4 days, showcasing the product’s properties and usability in streamlining a construction process.
Our function was to compensate for the demolition of an old railway bridge. By using Isobetong as lightweight fill under the new road section, we reduce ground pressure and avoid abnormal settlements. Alternatives such as lightweight aggregate and foam glass were considered, but Isobetong was chosen for environmental reasons and to minimize the customer’s own efforts in the construction.
By using Isobetong®,
ground pressure is reduced, and
abnormal settlements are avoided.
One of the major challenges for the project was working around pipes in the ground. Traditional materials struggle to compress efficiently and risk damaging these. Thanks to the lightweight fill properties of Isobetong, we solve this problem and create a stable foundation without compromising on quality.
Logistics and storage sites were also critical aspects during the construction. This was smoothly managed with the help of our mobile factories, allowing the project to stay within strict time frames. Moreover, the mobile solution and on-site delivery minimize environmental impact and significantly reduce the number of transports, a priority for both GRK Infra and the project’s stakeholders.
The significant environmental gain in this project is impressive – a total of 51 tons of CO2 were saved. This is comparable to heating 13 households for a year or the amount of carbon dioxide absorbed by 2,500 mature trees over a year.
Isobetong® has proven to be a leading solution that not only exceeds expectations in terms of construction performance but also marks an important milestone in sustainability and environmental awareness within the infrastructure sector. For future generations.
