Project Description

Facing challenges with mountainous terrains, erosion, rockfall, landslides, or unstable slopes can impact your construction project or become hazards on their own requiring active protection. Easy to build, our Reinforced Earth® walls are durable and flexible enough to resist and absorb dynamic forces.

Due to its lower and optimized use of construction materials compared to regular embankments and its suitability to build vertical and inclined walls and steepened slopes, the Reinforced Earth® technique is a perfect solution for protection against natural hazards in a variety of terrains.

Where rock falls or slope failures occur near the extremities of tunnels, our TechSpan® precast arch system can be designed to extend the tunnel with exact fit and be installed with minimal interruption to traffic.

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.
