DEVELOPER GOLDEN LAND HELPS DEMYSTIFY THIS PROCESS OF SOIL PREPARATION AND EXPLAINS THE BENEFITS TO THE END USER… YOU!

We know this much: not all land parcels are created equally.

Developers often have to deal with variable soil conditions when constructing buildings, and geography and the natural lay of the land play a big role in defining the method of soil preparation used on a development site.

In most cases, the existing moisture in the soil needs to be dealt with to ensure that the land does not slip or sink in the future, compromising the structural integrity of the building and resulting in serious cracks.

You may have heard the term “surcharging” before, and you may even know that this is one of the methods used to mitigate differential soil settlement. Through diligent reading, you may have also heard of Perforated Vertical Drains (or PVD) and how it plays a role in construction sites.

However, if like us, you want to find out more about how this process actually works, why we need it and what all this ultimately means to the end user… then the good folks at Golden Land Bhd have kindly offered to enlighten us.

Having recently utilised surcharging as well as PVD at their ongoing Golden Gateway project in Penang, Property360 speaks to Golden Land’s Chief Operating Officer Ng Heng Phai and General Manager (Technical) Low Yat Seow about why the company chose to apply this process, what it involves and why it holds long-term value for property buyers.
