Engineered Solutions Can Install a Soil Nail Wall for Your Commercial Property in Columbia, SC
A soil nail wall designed and built by the geotechnical experts at Engineered Solutions is an effective earth retention technique popular in Columbia, South Carolina, and most of the surrounding Piedmont region. The installation of one of these walls, a process oftentimes referred to as soil nailing, requires a specialized machine that drills holes into the hillside or the excavated soil wall that requires stabilization. Once these holes are drilled, typically three to six feet deep, tension-resisting steel sinews are inserted into the openings. A fluid-like grout mixture is then poured into the holes to solidify the bars into place and sturdy the soil nail wall. After the wall is built and the steel bars are inserted, a shotcrete finish is applied to complete the process.
The retained soil nail wall can be designed to be a temporary or permanent solution depending on the requirements of your construction or remedial project. Here at Engineered Solutions, we have encountered a variety of projects ranging in size, scope, and monetary risk. Some of the soil nail jobs we have successfully completed in and around the Columbia area include:
