Case Study Published for Carver High School

This paper discusses the results of the Carver High School review, along with the negotiations between the owner, general contractor, and subcontractors that went into deciding to improve the global stability of the tiered wall system. The paper presents the process used to select a buttress wall to improve global stability and several challenges encountered during construction.

SEGMENTAL RETAINING WALLS

Segmental Retaining Walls are often used as an effective and aesthetically pleasing solution for grade separation issues.

REINFORCED SOIL SLOPES

Reinforced Soil Slopes can be a cost-effective solution to Reinforced Soil Slopes can be a cost-effective solution to traditional retaining walls when enough space is available for a larger footprint.

MSE WIRE WALLS

MSE Wire Walls are often used for temporary and permanent applications in roadway construction, wetlands, detention ponds, and shoreline repair. They can often be vegetated to form a “green wall.”

SHEET PILE WALLS

Sheet Pile Walls are best used in “Cut” project applications where excavation behind the wall is restricted.

BIG BLOCK WALLS

Precast Gravity Wall Systems are an aesthetically pleasing option for walls up to 15’0″ when there is no room for geogrid. Minimum excavation and speed of installation are key factors.

SOIL ANCHORS

Soil Anchors are connected to bearing plates and are ideal in stabilizing soil, increasing soil bearing capacity and repairing failing MSE form walls.

HELICAL ANCHORS

Helical Anchors are typically used for foundation support and retaining wall applications with minimal disturbance to surrounding area.
