Residential housing development presents special challenges to developers and suppliers of site services.
Site preparation, planning for placement of utilities, landscaping ambitions, land-use constraints, environmental thoughtfulness, and smart user-friendly building designs are all considered in the Terre Armee approach.
Planning and Development
Terre Armee’s involvement in planning and developing residential housing projects begin with idealizing and preparing designs that answer to the developer’s vision and the occupants’ need for a sustainable living environment.
As engineers and material suppliers working for planning agencies, engineers, developers and builders, Terre Armee experts draw from their expertise in developing massive outlying urban infrastructure projects to develop localized “green” and friendly residential solutions. We have expertise at planning and design, and arranging the supply of building materials for “ground-up” works with:
- Foundation preparation with geogrid basal reinforcement
- Lot optimization through friendly landscaping solutions using our retaining wall systems such as Reinforced Earth® walls or precast T-Wall® or TechWall™
- Tunnels, and pedestrian bridges using Reinforced Earth®, TechSpan® or TechBox™ solutions.
Terre Armee is keen on developing plans that are low-impact to the resident’s surroundings. We operate in awareness that residential development projects are sensitive. When there is lack of available working space in residential communities, then in comparison to other techniques, Reinforced Earth® MSE and derivatives require a minimal footprint to install, they are unobtrusive, and therefore make the integration of our solutions in residential environments simpler and less invasive during installation.
The Terralink™ technique is an alternative retaining wall solution used when constraining conditions limit the amount of space and clearances available to construct new structures in proximity of existing structures and utilities. By way of Terre Armee design, the minimization of excavation and backfill material make this technique both tolerable and economical.
Ergonomics and Beautification
The Terre Armee companies are driven to offer limitless aesthetics possibilities. Beautification and sustainability of your surroundings are at the center of our residential design approach.
Around the world, our teams are used to work closely with architects and town and city planners to design tailored solutions that meet the most exacting architectural, “green”, and environmental demands.
