Concrete Retaining Wall Contractors

As leading concrete retaining wall contractors in the nation, Schnabel delivers bespoke earth-retention systems tailored to a variety of project specifics.

Our concrete walls, crafted to endure between 50 to 100 years, depend on site-specific conditions such as soil type and groundwater presence, along with the construction methodologies implemented. In our capacity as concrete retaining wall contractors, Schnabel is equipped to offer diverse, permanent wall solutions, adeptly handling unique project challenges and environmental factors.

No matter the environmental obstacles or operational hurdles, our expertise as concrete retaining wall contractors ensures that our clients receive the optimal solution for their needs.


In scenarios requiring permanent retaining walls, especially in cut or partial cut-and-fill situations, Schnabel’s prowess in concrete solutions, including permanent tieback, soil nail, and cantilevered pile walls, becomes invaluable.

These methods are not only practical and cost-efficient but also essential when avoiding disturbance to adjacent roads, structures, or landscapes. With an expected lifespan of 50 to 100 years, these concrete walls undergo thorough evaluations to assess corrosion risks, considering environmental influences.

Our team meticulously designs each aspect, from tiebacks to soil nails and facing connections, ensuring the longevity of the wall. The wall facings, typically made from reinforced cast-in-place concrete, shotcrete, or precast concrete panels, are designed for durability and can be aesthetically modified to blend with the surrounding area.

With a legacy spanning over fifty years, Schnabel stands as a prominent concrete retaining wall contractor in America. We take pride in tailoring our retaining wall projects to align with the unique demands and environmental conditions of each site. Our team of seasoned professionals is ready to assist in choosing the most suitable concrete retaining wall solution for your project.

The widening of US 321 through several miles of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park just outside of Gatlinburg, TN utilized Permanent Tieback Walls to minimize the impact to the surrounding environment and preserve the beauty of this majestic area. It took a team approach between Schnabel, Blalock and Sons, Inc. and the Tennessee Department of Transportation to construct one of the largest permanent tieback wall projects in the nation.
