Our Approach to Earth Retention Systems
Thrasher Commercial has a proven track record of earth retention experience in the building trades especially for Healthcare, Education and Manufacturing and all types of new construction.
An earth retention system project for Farm Credit Services of America.
In this case study, significant earthwork operations were required to construct the parking garage at the south and southwest areas of the site with maximum vertical excavations of about 25 feet anticipated. Helical soil nails and a Shotcrete wall were selected for the earth retention system at the south and southwest areas of the site based on their cost effectiveness and ability to not obstruct the right of way of a nearby street. Read the full Case Study here.
Used in combination, soil nails and shotcrete give foundation repair contractors a number of options that are useful in commercial applications, alike. Being able to build retaining walls quickly and inexpensively makes it possible to create workable level areas on sloping sites that would otherwise be unusable. Soil nail and shotcrete techniques can also stabilize slopes and create temporary walls so that more permanent structural work can take place safely.
