When constructing permanent retaining walls in cut or partial cut-and-fill situations, Schnabel excels in concrete-based solutions like permanent tieback, soil nail, and cantilevered pile walls.
These approaches are not only practical and cost-effective but also crucial when it’s necessary to preserve the integrity of nearby infrastructure. Considering their extended lifespan (typically 50 to 100 years), these concrete walls undergo rigorous evaluations for corrosion potential, factoring in environmental conditions.
Our experts ensure that every element, from tiebacks and soil nails to facing connections, is designed for durability. The facing of these walls, often comprising reinforced cast-in-place concrete, shotcrete, or precast concrete panels, is crafted for both structural integrity and aesthetic appeal, blending seamlessly into the surrounding environment.
