In scenarios where a permanent retaining wall is needed, particularly in cut or partial cut-and-fill situations, Schnabel’s expertise in permanent tieback, soil nails, and cantilevered pile walls comes to the forefront.
These methods are both practical and cost-effective, especially when preserving the integrity of nearby roads, structures, slopes, or features is crucial. Given the typical lifespan of these walls (50 to 100 years), thorough assessments of soil and groundwater for corrosion potential are conducted.
Our specialists meticulously design every component, including tiebacks, soil nails, and facing connections, to ensure the wall’s longevity. The wall’s facing, often made of reinforced concrete or shotcrete, is tailored not only for durability but also for aesthetic appeal, harmonizing with the surrounding landscape.
