Slope Stabilization Solutions

Landslides occur when the driving forces acting upon a soil mass exceed its internal resisting forces, resulting in movement of the land.

At Schnabel, we specialize in providing unrivaled landslide repair services that employ proven techniques to halt or prevent landslides. Our expert team utilizes a combination of innovative methods, including the installation of tieback anchors, soldier piles, micropiles, and more, to reinforce the slope and provide additional external resisting force. Tieback anchors, in particular, offer a cost-effective and efficient solution in many scenarios.

In cases where mass excavation is impractical or the soil along the failure surface presents drainage challenges, tieback anchors can be the optimal choice. Alternatively, a combination of tiebacks with other stabilization methods may yield the best results. Our highly skilled professionals excel in constructing tieback walls designed to control landslides, ensuring an increase in resisting forces to meet predetermined safety factors. These walls can be strategically positioned within the slope to provide optimal resistance in the desired direction, all while minimizing disturbance to the site.

When you choose Schnabel for your landslide repair needs, you can expect top-quality service, unmatched expertise, and innovative solutions that guarantee the stability and safety of your slopes.

Schnabel’s slope stabilization techniques involve anchoring tiebacks through walls or using discrete concrete elements in competent soil or rock beneath the slope failure surface. In some cases, tieback loads are directly distributed to the soil. Our experts also bury walls or elements within slopes and restore vegetation to its original condition. With over half a century of experience, Schnabel delivers innovative and cost-effective slope stabilization services.

landslide control services

Provo Canyon

Schnabel installed 208 permanent anchors in a side hill cut in Provo, Utah to stabilize a potential landslide which could have been triggered by a cut for a new roadway alignment.

landslide control measures

Summit Senior Care Facility

Schnabel constructed a permanent tieback wall to stabilize a large landslide and allow the construction of the new Summit Senior Care Facility in San Ramon California.

Schnabel constructed a permanent tieback wall to stabilize an old landslide so that previously unusable land could be used to construct a new senior care facility. Schnabel worked closely with design consultant Cotton, Shires and Associates to produce a design that would stabilize a large slide close to numerous fault lines. This required deep soldier piles and high capacity tiebacks up to 150-foot long.
