Why haul away soil and bring in new materials when the soil can be used for construction? The Mixed-in-Place (MIP) method developed by the BAUER Group avoid the need for labour-intensive transport coordination, cut costs, reduce emissions and so relieve the strain on residents in the neighbourhood. The method offers efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternatives in the appropriate ground.

Construction Method

The Mixed-in-Place (MIP) method is particularly suitable in non-cohesive soils for the construction of cut-off walls as groundwater or pollution control, for remediating dykes and dams, or for the installation of structural retaining structures to secure terraces in the ground and excavation pits. In the MIP method, the surrounding soil is broken up with a single or triple auger, turned over and the pores filled in with binder suspension. The individual units are combined to form walls by the step back method. In this, it is the size of the auger(s) which ultimately dictates the unit size. Reinforcing elements can be installed in the fresh MIP mix for structural strengthening.
