Trusted Slope Stabilization Services for Businesses in Columbia, SC
As civil engineers know all too well, constructing a building or a bridge on loose or shifting soil can be a risky proposition. If the soil is not held back, it can collapse into a foundation construction space or move after the structure has been completed. If it’s the latter, and the soil instability is left unaddressed, it can cause the foundation to sink or settle unevenly, which can then lead to costly repairs and even compromise the structural integrity of the structure in question. Fortunately, if you’re working on a project in Columbia, South Carolina, there is a cost-effective way to prevent any such scenario from happening—slope stabilization services from Engineered Solutions of Georgia.
Engineered Solutions That Put You on Solid Ground
To properly stabilize the ground before construction, we frequently perform slope stabilization services such as:
- Soil nail wall installation: With smaller overhead construction requirements, this method allows for easy installation in tight spaces, like underneath a bridge. Soil nail walls are the preferred solution for commercial projects in urban areas and can be installed faster and with fewer materials than other support options, making it a cost-effective option.
- Helical anchors: Also known as helical tiebacks, helical anchors are large, metal shafts that are threaded at the end like a screw. They reinforce the foundation, serving as anchors that hold the foundation walls upright. Helical anchors can be used as a permanent retention solution, but they can be easily removed for temporary projects, if necessary. Because the anchors don’t require grout or cement and can be tested immediately, they are great options for projects under a stringent budget.
