  • Segmental Retaining Walls for Project Site Stability

    1 LU

    Many people do not realize the complexity and strategic planning that goes into maintaining the integrity of a job site. Job sites are as unique as the building or structure that will be built on them - the topography, drainage, soil type, indigenous flora and proximity to waterways are all taken into consideration in site planning. Using segmental retaining walls on a job site can prevent erosion, add to a project’s aesthetic appeal, or create more useable land. This presentation will look at how segmental retaining walls maintain and improve a job site. Take the course.
