Vertical walls in Urban Infrastructure

Over the last few decades, the world has been rapidly urbanizing. According to the United Nations, in 1950, only 30% of the world’s population lived in urban areas: now, that proportion grew to 55% and it is expected to reach 70% by 2050.

In the urban environment, space is a key resource that is becoming more and more limited. Flyovers and bridges are vital infrastructure elements to solve traffic and mobility problems, but their ground footprint is a critical aspect when it comes to sustainable development.

Maccaferri’s MacRes system has been developed to create vertical concrete-faced soil reinforcement structures capable of resisting high loads. Available with a variety of face finishes, MacRes is a remarkable example of an urban structure that combines functionality and aesthetics.

In this webinar we will present to you our MacRes System, its design approach, and installation procedure.
