Soil Nail Wall Applications for Projects in Montgomery, AL
As the premier specialty construction company serving the Montgomery, Alabama, area, Engineered Solutions of Georgia provides a wide range of geotechnical services including ground engineering, excavation, and foundation repair. Many of these projects require us to construct a soil nail wall, which is a structure used to secure unstable natural soil slopes, reinforce retaining walls, and prevent cave-ins during the excavation portion of largescale foundation installation and repair projects. We also use soil nail walls to repair failing dams and retention walls, and for foundation repair projects that require careful installation due to nearby existing structures.
How Are Soil Nail Walls Installed?
Building a soil nail wall—a process commonly referred to as soil nailing—requires a specialized machine that bores holes between 3 and 6 feet deep into the hillside or excavated soil wall. Once the holes are drilled, tension-resisting steel rods are inserted into the openings and a fluid-like grout mixture is poured into the holes to hold the steel rods in place and secure the wall. If the soil nail wall is meant to be a permanent structure, then a shotcrete finish is often applied to the surface of the wall to complete the process.
When you partner with Engineered Solutions of Georgia to have a soil nail wall installed, you can rest assured that you’re working with trusted industry professionals.
