Geotechnical: Retaining Structures

Geotechnical: Retaining Structures

Ninyo & Moore provides geotechnical design and construction services for both temporary and long-term retaining structures for various applications. We evaluate the site-specific conditions, wall height, transient and permanent loads, seismic loading, and hydrostatic pressures, as well as many other parameters, in order to provide design parameters for proposed structures.

Evaluations are performed for the following:

  • Permanent wall systems
  • Cantilever
  • Tie-back
  • Soil nail
  • Mechanically stabilized earth (MSE)
  • Gabion
  • Crib and bin
  • Modular block
  • Temporary systems
  • Sheet piles
  • Soldier pile and lagging
  • Braced excavations
  • Cofferdams

NINYO & MOORE We transform today so our world is a better place tomorrow.
