Retaining Wall Assessment and Design
Timely maintenance avoids high-cost repairs...
Retaining walls are used at the sides of ramps, in basements, on sloped ground, as bridge abutments, as landscaping features, as structural components, and for erosion control.
Retaining wall systems must resist the forces of earth, hydrostatic pressures, and structural loads. A failure can occur if the wall has not been maintained or was improperly designed. GRG understands the geotechnical and the structural practices involved in the construction of retained earth systems, can establish the cause of failure and design appropriate repairs or replacements.
