Ultimate low impact solution

Minimal dust, a plus for interior work
No compaction equipment needed, this makes the filling process quieter and better for the stability of surrounding structures

The pool was filled in within a week from the first contact with our client. This was expedited quickly due to possible health concerns related to the pool. Now with the pool filled, our client can move on to the second phase of renovating the space.
