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.
