Terra‐Crete™: a Great Solution For Void Filling

Terra‐Crete™ is ideal for void filling around slip-lined pipes and can even be pumped into large voids such as tunnels. This concrete fill can be pumped long distances into tunnels or where the slipping of older infrastructure or new pipe placement has been completed. Terra‐Crete™ can displace water, and specifications can be controlled using variations in the formulation to provide for delayed or rapid setting and special handling characteristics. This material may be installed using a top-down method or as determined in the field. The concrete fill material will not separate like normal concrete mixes dropped into the void. Terra‐Crete™ will easily flow around obstructions to completely fill the hard-to-access areas. Terra‐Crete™ self-levels needing little to no compacting or spreading. It also requires no vibrating or tamping. Learn more about the void filling solutions at UMA Geotechnical Construction when you call today!

Why Terra‐Crete™ Concrete Fill?

Terra-Crete™ is a cost-effective excavatable fill that can be formulated to be either pervious or non-pervious depending on your application. This low-density cellular concrete is an advantage if your void will be covered by a durable surface such as concrete or asphalt. With the capabilities to pump up to three miles in a continuous pour, it is perfect for pipe abandonment projects. UMA Geotechnical Construction is excited to offer Terra-Crete for industrial, commercial, and residential projects. Let us help you determine if Terra-Crete is a good fit for your project.

There are many advantages to using Terra-Crete over traditional flowable fill. The main advantages of Terra-Crete for void filling are as follows:

Key Benefits

  • Designed for the specific site and soil conditions of each project
  • Flows easily into all spaces eliminating potential voids

The City has worked on two larger projects with UMA. Both projects exceeded our expectations and were delivered on-time and on–budget. I would encourage anyone seeking soil and structure stabilization to consider UMA based on the successful projects they have delivered for the City of Durham.
