Case Study 9: Laydown Yard, Port of Nanaimo
Application / Problem Description:
Reinforcement of an unbound aggregate laydown area used to stock various wind turbine components.
Two layers of Pacific GeoSource BX2020 RockGrid were placed within a 14 inch thickness of aggregate. Incorporating a geogrid solution resulted in a 50% reduction in the required thickness; this saved the contractor 8,000 tons of aggregate and 5 days’ construction time.
