New DFI committee to tackle “controversial” grouting issues

The Deep Foundations Institute (DFI) has announced the formation of a new technical committee to focus on the grouting sector.

According to the DFI, the International Grouting Committee has been formed with the aim of clarifying the “sometimes controversial differences in the international grouting industry”.

In a statement, the DFI said: “The primary initiative of the committee is to prepare general guidelines and specific documents summarising the different international approaches and procedures existing in the industry. In addition, the committee plans to review and summarise existing documents and specifications used in the worldwide grouting industry.

“The committee plans to involve representatives of the entire geo-foundation industry including owners, engineers, contractors, manufacturers and academics, and is committed to communicate and cooperate with other existing grouting committees or groups.”

The first chair of the group has been confirmed as Sea to Sky Geotech’s Paolo Gazzarrini who has been involved in grouting foundation works for major hydroelectric projects all over the world, with experience in foundation techniques, tunnelling, tunnelling consolidation, diaphragm walls, anchoring, rock/soil grouting and jet-grouting.
