Vibro Stone Columns 

(Vibro Replacement)


Vibro Stone Columns


Helicon's vibro stone columns (or vibro-replacement) are a ground improvement technique particularly suitable to increase the density of granular soils and reinforce cohesive soils.

Making sure the ground can support a structure is a team effort that requires equal parts communication and expertise among all parties involved. Helicon has completed ground improvement solutions at hundreds of sites in Florida, building trusted relationships and a bank of knowledge unrivaled in the industry.

Installing vibro stone column often times dramatically strengthens weak soils at a lower cost than either building deep foundations or replacing weak soils with engineered fill.  We provide the most cost-effective and technically appropriate solution for your project’s needs.
