Case Studies

Advantages of using post-tensioningfor your next Rock and Soil Anchor project:

  • Re-stressable: Re-stressable systems can be implemented for flexibility in working in areas with ground and building movement
  • Construction Time Reduction: A permanently anchored retaining wall can substantially reduce the cost and construction time.
  • Resistance to Sliding and Overturning: Permanent dam tie downs increase its resistance to sliding and overturning.
  • Cost Reduction: An existing wall can typically be stabilized with permanent anchors at a fraction of the cost of constructing a new wall – without disturbing the rock or soil behind the wall.
