A signature innovation
First pioneered by Terre Armee, the concept of mechanically stabilized earth walls (MSE) extends itself to an array of applications. Our engineers work with your team to apply this globally-recognized technique to solve nearly any geotechnical challenge you face in building roads, bridges, embankments, industrial landscapes, and more. Together, we will solve problems that arise when you are seeking solutions for your soils and structure interaction.
A resilient retaining wall solution, MSE structures combine controlled backfill with a selection of steel or geosynthetic soil reinforcements that are attached to a modular facing system. Facing systems vary, and may consist of concrete panels, wire mesh, vegetative surfaces or semi-elliptical metallic panels. The ideal combination of earth, soil reinforcements and facing creates a sustainable reinforced soil structure.
Reinforced Earth® wall applications
For nearly sixty years now, Reinforced Earth® walls have been constructed worldwide, now totaling more than 66-million square meters of surface area installed.
We have partnered with developers and builders in the full spectrum of building sectors:
Design and installation
Our professional engineers design Reinforced Earth® structures with checks for internal and overall stability, considering the static loads and the predicted dynamic loads. We optimize the design for your project using a calculative choice of materials and proper quantities that suit your specific plans for use and intended service life.
The installation procedures for Reinforced Earth® walls are straightforward. Our expert operations team will develop organized manufacturing and delivery schedules for the materials necessary to build your Reinforced Earth® structure. Installation is ensured to be rapid and predictable due to standardized material patterns and repetitive handling processes that quicken placement of the wall components.
