Retaining Wall

The most common application of Reinforced Earth is for earth retention of road and highway structures. A Reinforced Earth retaining wall is a gravity structure consisting of alternating layers of granular backfill and reinforcing strips with a modular precast concrete facing.  Reinforced Earth retaining walls are suitable for very high or heavy loaded walls and can be built on compressible foundation soils or unstable slopes. In addition, Reinforced Earth is well suited for restricted sites or close to property lines. Rapid, predictable and easy construction process, coupled with low materials volume, make Reinforced Earth an extremely cost-effective solution.


Tiered walls provide architectural attractiveness to retaining wall applications.


Use of retaining walls allowed for road widening without embankments encroaching on parkland.

Curved walls provide additional design elements.
