Soil Nail Wall Construction Services for Properties in Knoxville, TN
A soil nail wall is an earth retention system that is ideal for construction sites that have loosely packed soil and areas where landslides pose a real threat. Soil nail walls are typically used when traditional retention walls may not be able to effectively and safely hold back the soil at construction excavations. At Engineered Solutions of Georgia, we specialize in soil nail wall installations and have worked with countless commercial clients in the Knoxville, Tennessee, area since our founding in 2006.
How ESOG Constructs Soil Nail Walls
To construct a soil nail wall, the ESOG team first takes a geological survey of the construction site to get a complete understanding of the surrounding soil structures. Our design-build team then devises a soil nail wall that can fully reinforce and stabilize the soil at the site. After that, we will build the soil nail wall by inserting heavy-duty steel tendons deep into the soil in strategically placed locations. We finish by applying a layer of grout to the outside of the soil nail wall to create a cohesive mass that will retain the soil and prevent shifting.
The Advantages of Soil Nail Wall Systems
Soil nail walls are often preferable to traditional retaining walls as they can be installed more quickly and require fewer materials. Soil nail walls also have smaller overhead construction requirements. These attributes make soil nail walls cost-effective systems for projects that include:
- Temporary excavations for construction sites
- Tunnels, bridges, and roadways
- Remediation of failed retention walls
