In use with several waste management operators and many more consultants and surveyors, LSS contains the tools necessary to plan, design, monitor, visualise and restore landfill sites. From inception, LSS is used to perform environmental and visual impact assessments, model the existing ground surface and determine volumes if in existing void areas, or finished profile surfaces if above ground operations are planned.
Cell designs and access ramps may be produced, daily / weekly / monthly volumes compared and broken down by cell, material, or zones of operation.
When bulking factors are known, LSS is able to adjust restored surfaces to allow for settlement, thus resulting in a more accurate final design.

Landpac apply a ground improvement system, called High Energy Impact Compaction (HEIC), which is used to improve many existing materials in-situ down to 3m deep and can also be used to compact placed materials in 1m thick layerworks. They have used LSS extensively for several years and the design, reporting and volume calculation tools have proved invaluable on many large projects worldwide.
