MSE Walls MSEW structures are cost-effective alternatives for most applications where reinforced concrete or gravity type walls have traditionally been used to retain soil. These include bridge abutments and wing walls, as well as areas where the right-of-way is restricted, such that an embankment or excavation with stable side slopes cannot be constructed. They are particularly suited to economical construction in steep-sided terrain, in ground subject to slope instability, or in areas where foundation soils are poor.
MSE walls offer significant technical and cost advantages over conventional reinforced concrete retaining structures at sites with poor foundation conditions. In such cases, the elimination of costs for foundation improvements such as piles and pile caps, that may be required for support of conventional structures, have resulted in cost savings of greater than 50 percent on completed projects. Temporary MSE wall structures have been especially cost-effective for temporary detours necessary for highway reconstruction projects. Temporary MSE walls are used to support temporary roadway embankments and temporary bridge abutments. MSE walls are also used as temporary support of permanent roadway embankments for phased construction.Learn More
The Shuttabloc™ wall is a precast retaining wall with internal reinforcing system specifically designed to provide a faster, more economical solution to cast-in-place concrete. No onsite formwork, faster installation and a factory controlled finish results in a product that is flexible, cost effective and designed to exactly the same properties as an in-situ wall. The Shuttabloc™ system can be used for a wide variety of applications including silage clamps, security walls, bulk storage, vapor barriers, piers and abutments, and retaining walls. Advantages of the Shuttabloc™ system include:Learn More
