Earth retention is the effort of preventing lateral earth movement caused by excavations, traffic surcharges, water pressure, etc. We offer earth retention solutions consisting of chemical and cement soil grouting, pilings, and tieback anchors.
While there are many construction methods and products used for earth retention purposes, Foundation Professionals of Florida offers permanent and temporary earth retention systems involving soil grouting methods, steel and concrete pilings, as well as a variety of tieback anchor systems.
Common earth retention services:
- Excavation support and shoring
- Landslide mitigation
- Retaining wall repair
- Soil enhancement under structures and roadways
Soil grouting and earth retention
We routinely utilize chemical grouting to provide earth retention support for excavations adjacent to existing structures. Soil grouting turns loose soils into a solid mass which eliminates or greatly reduces lateral earth movement during excavations as well as provides reduced permeability from groundwater, keeping excavation pits dry when below the water table. Soil grouting can double as an excavation support system as well as an underpinning system for adjacent structures and can be used in addition to pilings. Soil grouting is an ideal earth retention solution in situations where the vibrations from sheet pile driving could cause damage to nearby foundations.
Pilings and earth retention
Piling systems can also be used to enhance stability of soils and resist lateral pressures. We install a variety of micropiles which are designed to resist compression, tension, and lateral loads.
Tieback anchors and earth retention
Additionally, we offer helical tieback anchors, wall plate anchors, and deadman anchors to reinforce failing retaining walls, bulkheads, seawalls, and basement walls.
