Industries, governments, military, and corporate clients the world over simply require the presence of quality infrastructure in any given area they may wish to operate in, if they wish to do business efficiently at all.

This often leads them in search of soil and dust solutions, as the implementation of large-scale road building and infrastructure projects can often have negative impacts both in terms of cost an environmental impact if not managed correctly.

Global Road Technology is a well-known industry leader in road solutions, and is often able to help organizations like these save significant amounts of time and capital on construction projects while providing environmental benefits at the same time.

Soil and Dust Solutions – A Quick and Easy Breakdown

Let’s take a quick look at the basic life cycle of a road construction project using modern soil and dust solutions, and then we will delve a bit more deeply into each aspect and step of the process:

In general, projects will begin with an exploratory phase.  Initial investment costs as well as total life cycle costs including expected maintenance will be measured.  Environmental impact is assessed; this may have several separate components.  Expected emissions may be scheduled or assessed, water use may be examined, soil and dust solutions may be considered, and more.

Then a product and service recommendation will be made, a solution designed, equipment manufactured if necessary, and then the full project rollout begins, culminating in on-site training of the new personnel who will manage things moving forward.

Are environmental regulations, health and safety concerns or potential profit loss a concern right now?

Now let’s look a bit more closely at the minutiae associated with a road construction project, and examine the steps in which road solutions play their proven part in reducing costs:

  • Site Assessment – Typically, projects begin with a site assessment and feasibility study, which sets out time requirements, budgetary concerns, regulatory compliance, and other administrative factors.  Knowing that you already have  solutions in place, such as those offered by GRT, can make the difference between a project being considered viable or not.
  • Environmental Impact Analysis – This is another area where knowing that these solutions will be employed in advance is a great help.  Less water usage is required, dust control is less of an issue, and less CO2 is released into the air because of the lowered level of logistical and vehicle support required on projects correctly employing soil and dust solutions.
  • Soil Analysis and Testing – This step helps the company responsible for providing the solutions to know which of their own products and services will be required in the deployment and building phase.  Based upon the composition of the soil, the relative size of the particles, moisture levels and density, and a variety of other factors, different approaches may be needed
  • Ongoing Maintenance – The last major phase in which soil and dust solutions has a major cost impact is the ongoing maintenance associated with the construction project.  Roads and other construction treated with these solutions during building often require significantly less maintenance than roads constructed using traditional method, which can really add up over time.

Soil and Dust Solutions – Conclusion

As you can see, employing these modern solutions offers some rather significant benefits through the whole life cycle of a road construction project.  Organizations interested in learning how to take advantage of these products, techniques, and methods should contact an industry leader such as Global Road Technology, and find out how our solutions can help save them time and money on construction and road building projects.
