What is Engineered Fill?

In the past certain sites may have been considered unusable or not economically feasible.  However sites can now be easily developed by removing any unsuitable soil and then utilizing Engineered Fill to create a stable base for building.  Ground improvement techniques are increasingly used for new projects on sites previously considered as economically unjustifiable or technically not feasible. These sites can now be developed by removing the unsuitable soils and replacing them with engineered fill. The Engineered Fill is furnished and placed to meet the engineer’s requirements for the specific use. This may include requirements for the type of material, gradation, plasticity, permeability, compaction, moisture content, placement methods, QA/QC etc. which are often published on the plans or in the specs.
