Beacon Falls Bin Wall Repair
City: Beacon Falls
Owner: Connecticut Department of Transportation
General Contractor: Baier Construction Company
Schnabel Foundation Company was hired to install tiebacks to stabilize a failing bin wall along Route 42 in Beacon Falls, Connecticut. The bin wall was around 550 feet long with a maximum height of 23 feet. The stabilization of the bin wall required around 262 permanent tiebacks utilizing double corrosion protection. After the tiebacks were installed and tested, a cast in place concrete facing was poured around the tieback head connections. After a sufficient amount of cure time, the tiebacks were locked off to the new wall and the blockouts were patched.
