Site conditions, weather, availability of materials and schedules are key factors in choosing the best type of retaining structures.  We work closely with geotechnical engineers on larger and complicated walls to take advantage of the existing site conditions to provide the most economical solution available.  Retained earth wall heights vary depending on the project and can be as little as 4 feet or 50 feet and larger. We provide structural engineering services insure walls have adequate strength, and size to meet the requirements of the local building jurisdiction.
