On April 28, Chris Hamilton and Don Rigby paid Georgia Underground a visit. Purpose? Part service, part exploratory, part wonderment.

In Q1 2016, Georgia Underground racked up a 256% increase in business. Darn right we were curious, but not surprised with the answer. According to Brenda Armbrust, "Projects - more injection grouting projects and our customers know two things: Controlling groundwater means Avanti, and Georgia Underground keeps it in stock.

Chemical Grouting is for Life-Long Learners

Posted in Water & Wastewater

Since becoming part of the Avanti family, I have met with dozens of grouting contractors and municipal crews with years of experience rehabbing underground structures.

Preserving the Underground Infrastructure at Miami-Dade

Communities large and small face a delicate balance of improving their underground sanitary sewer collection system and reducing flow to their treatment plant while being good stewards of the rate-payer and protecting quality of life.

Ultrafine Cement Grout Excels at Colorado School of Mines Field Day

It happens only once a year. Colorado School of Mines (Golden, CO) hosts a week long short-course on grouting. It’s attended by Who’s Who in the geotechnical grouting industry.

On the afternoon of June 19, 2013, the school hosted a Field Day and participants were able to view a live demonstration of the permeability of different grouts through Sand Column Testing. I’m pleased to announce, US Grout’s Ultrafine Cement excelled over other cement grouts by reaching the top of the sand column (60 inches) in just 80 seconds. No other cement grout came close.

With work often in confined spaces, after hours, and sometimes requiring equipment shut down, it is vital to have everything ready to facilitate starting on time so you can finish as planned.

The Proof is in the Pudding

Posted in Industry News

The Proof is in the Pudding

The basic meaning of the popular phrase "proof is in the pudding" is being uncertain about the quality of something until it's been tried and tested. That's how we feel about our Field Services Manager, Charlie Lerman. He's a hot commodity, our secret weapon, the real deal, tried and tested ... you see where I'm going with this. Most of all, he's genuine and always willing to assist, teach and mentor those of the grouting community.
