Project Description

Stable walls capable of bearing heavy loads with minimal settlement, Reinforced Earth® bridge abutments can directly support bridge decks, reducing the need for earth work.

Pure abutments are ideal solutions for compressible foundation soils, or where a combination of Reinforced Earth® and soil improvement can provide a cost-effective alternative to cast-in-place concrete abutments. Significant time and cost savings can also be generated where piles are necessary but can be reduced through a combination with Reinforced Earth® walls.

Reinforced Earth®

Our flagship technique, Reinforced Earth®, is based on the principle of the friction between soil and reinforcements creating a permanent and predictable bond. At the origin of all mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) walls on the market today, we are continuously perfecting this simple, yet ingenious technique. Discover the advantages of Reinforced Earth®
