Earth Retention & Shoring, Carolina Foundation Solutions

QUALITY EARTH RETENTION SYSTEM CONSTRUCTION BY CAROLINA FOUNDATION SOLUTIONS

An earth retention system, earth support system, or earth stabilization system is defined by a system or structure that is implemented and constructed with the purpose of retaining, supporting, reinforcing, and/or securing a mass of soils or other materials. Whether it is permanent or temporary, Carolina Foundation Solutions can help with the installation of an effective earth retention system which can often be a critical step within the beginning stages of a construction project.

An earth retention system is often required to resist the lateral pressure of soils when and where there is a desired change in ground elevation adjacent to an existing mass of soils. There are many types of earth retention systems, so it is important to understand the existing soil conditions as well as the demands and requirements when and where an earth retention system is needed.

Permanent Shoring

When permanent shoring is needed, Carolina Foundation Solutions has the experience and expertise needed to get the job done. We are trained and certified installers of CHANCE Helical Tieback Anchors, which are commonly used as an effective and reliable method of providing permanent lateral support for soils along deep cuts, slopes, and excavations. Our ability and expertise with installing helical tieback anchors allows us to provide the perfect shoring solution in limited access areas or areas where large excavations, cleanup, and vibrations are a concern.

Temporary Shoring

When temporary shoring is needed, time and cost can often be two important factors. Carolina Foundation Solutions is able to provide very cost effective solutions through the use of CHANCE Helical Tieback Anchors. The installation of helical tieback anchors is fast, the anchors provide immediate and accurate results where lateral support is needed. The helical tieback anchors can be integrated into many existing systems, particularly when additional lateral support is needed for soldier piling and lagging systems or driven steel sheet wall systems.

Slope Stabilization

Whether it is a steep cut that is to be made or it is an existing embankment, Carolina Foundation Solutions specializes in providing solutions when slope stabilization is needed. Carolina Foundation Solutions provides systems ranging from the installation of CHANCE Soil Screws, to the installation of driven soil nails, to the placement of mesh and wire materials. The various systems we offer can be installed quickly and installed where access is limited.
