We provide structure engineering services for earth retaining structures. These run the range from re-building structures that are affected by major landslides to installing retaining walls for landscaping purposes. Since the El Nino winter of 1997/98, we are currently involved in the repair of landslides in several local communities. These repairs typically involve both the installation of new retaining walls and regrading the slope with engineered compacted fill.
We are familiar with the common types of retaining walls used in this
area. These include concrete or block walls on conventional or pier
foundations, soldier beam walls with either wood or concrete lagging, and
the masonry segmental walls such as Keystone.
