The aim of this paper is to present some case histories where vertical jet grouting solutions were successfully adopted. On these cases ground treatment by vertical jet grouted columns was used as an alternative to traditional solutions on a wide number of scenarios such as: deep foundations, underpinning, horizontal sealing, slab and cofferdam structures. On each case the following topics are pointed out: main scenario, Geotechnical conditions, main design criteria main construction issues and main advantages.
