HOLCIM Philippines, Inc. said its soil stabilization technology is being used for the seven-hectare parking lot of the Aquatic Center in New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac.
“The innovative building solution helps prevent durability issues and delays caused by inclement weather so it can be available in time for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games (in November),” the company said in a statement.
Soil stabilization is done to make the base sturdier and less prone to erosion caused by inclement weather.
“This is the biggest project thus far to use soil stabilization technology. We are confident it will deliver the promised benefits which will support our efforts to make the technology more widely used in the country,” Holcim Philippines Head of Infrastructure John Edward Reyes said.
Holcim Philippines is currently working with the Department of Public Works and Highways-Bureau of Research Standards for the accreditation of its soil stabilization technology in government road projects.
